Eminem surprise-dropped Kamikaze on August 30 and it’s been a heavy topic of conversation ever since. After releasing a video for “Fall” earlier this month, Slim Shady is back with another visual, this time for “Lucky You” featuring Joyner Lucas.
During the video, Shady and Joyner are able to control hundreds of red-eyed figures cloaked in black. For roughly six minutes, the duo raps from the tops of abandoned cars while flexing their lyrical prowess as the dark figures float away in the air.
Hip Hop fans have been hoping Em would respond to Machine Gun Kelly’s diss track “Rap Devil,” but during Part II of The Kamikaze Interview with Sway Calloway, Em sounded hesitant.
“I’m gonna sit back and I’m gonna wait for a second,” he says. “If people start firing off and I try to answer every fucking body I dissed on Kamikaze, or had words about, I’ma be going the next five fucking years making diss song after diss song.”

As the Hip Hop world awaits Eminem’s response to Machine Gun Kelly’s “Rap Devil,” Slim Shady is moving along with business as usual. On Monday morning (September 10), Em took to Twitter to announce his new video for “Lucky You” featuring Joyner Lucas was on its way.
“‘LUCKY YOU’ video with @JoynerLucas drops Weds. 1 pm ET,” he wrote.
Rap fans have been salivating at the thought of a potential retaliation from Shady ever since MGK delivered his bold diss track last Monday (September 3).
So far, Bizarre has been the most vocal about defending his former D12 group member.
On Monday (September 10), he shared a snippet via Instagram of what is believed to be a MGK diss track.
In terms of Em’s reaction, fans have theorized one of Em’s recent Instagram Stories — which shows him playing Ms. Pac-Man for seven-minutes — means he’s getting locked and loaded behind the scenes.
MGK has two Ms. Pac-Man tattoos on his upper body.
For now, we’ll have to wait and see if anything materializes.
Until then, check out the “Lucky You” clip above.
