The collaboration is announced in a picture shared via the Detroit rapper and the 'Oldboy' director's respective Instagram account.
Eminem is readying a music video for his track called "Headlights". On Saturday, April 5, the Detroit native announced the news on Instagram and revealed that he'd teamed up with director Spike Lee for the anticipated project.
"Spike came out to The D for the 'Headlights' video... Coming soon," Em said, captioning a picture of him posing with the "Oldboy" helmer. Later that day, Lee confirmed his collaboration with the rapper.
He posted the same photo on his Instagram page and captioned it, "Detroit's Finest EMINEM And Me Working Together On His Short a Film.Historic. Who Woulda Thunk It."
"Headlights" appears in "MMLP2", Eminem's latest album that peaked at No. 1 on Billboard 200 after it was released last year. Featuring guest vocals from Fun.'s member Nate Ruess, the track finds the Slim Shady talking about his rocky relationship with his mother Debbie Mathers.
In the song, he also thanks his mother for raising him and apologizes for calling his mother bad words in his 2002 single "Cleaning Out My Closet".
