Eminem’s “Tobey” debuts on Billboard Hot 100

On Monday (July 8, 2024), Eminem dropped the much anticipated visuals for his song “Tobey,” which features verses from Detroit natives Big Sean and BabyTron. In the video below, directed by Cole Bennett, the three rappers can be seen delivering their respective rhymes while in various locations including a warehouse and a spaceship.

In one scene, BabyTron and Slim Shady can be seen hanging around what seems to be Eminem’s childhood home at 19946 Dresden St. in Detroit. It’s the same house on the cover of Em’s The Marshall Mathers LP—in the same brown patina, too. BabyTron raps about his certified G.O.A.T. status while walking around Em’s old residence. After the camera pans to Shady, he begins to rap about his humble beginnings, his mission to inspire the youth and much more while sitting on the porch of the home.

“Tobey Maguire got bit by a spider, but see, me, it was a goat/If you want space, I hope you take your helmet off soon as you get up to Venus and choke,” they rap on the chorus. “Even while sleepin’, be thinkin’ so woke/White Cartiers, all I’m seein’ is dope (Yeah)/My city Leia and I’m Obi-Wan, got a mission to pass, I just might be the hope.”

At the end, Em, donning a Jason mask, chainsaws someone off camera making a bloody mess. The camera then pulls back to reveal a chalk outline of a person (possibly of Slim Shady) who has left hand cut off but still showing middle finger. The “Tobey” music video was supposed to debut via YouTube on July 5 but was postponed to drop Yesterday.

The single itself was released on July 2 (Tuesday). Even though it had only 2.5 days to enter the charts, the song managed to debut inside Billboard Hot 100, at No. 95, making it the first ever entry for BabyTron on the prestigious charts.
