WATCH: Eminem Drops “Darkness” Video about Gun Violence Awareness
Eminem shocked the world when dropping new album, “Music To Be Murdered By” this morning. The 20-track project features Juice WRLD, Ed Sheeran, Royce Da 5’9 and more. The album is already no. 1 on iTunes in 53 countries.
What also came with the album was a video for a song off the album, “Darkness.”
Em tries to enter the mind of the Las Vegas shooter by painting a picture of a man with a mental illness.
I got ammo for all the hecklers, I’m armed to the teeth … Finger on the trigger, but I’m a licensed owner / with no prior convictions, so loss, the sky’s the limit
The song features recreated audio of gunfire and screaming crowds and ends with real news footage. The video ends with a call to help change gun laws in America.
The track and video is mostly receiving positive feedback but some people feel Em is glorifying gun violence.
