WATCH: Eminem “Guts Over Fear” Video!
Eminem has debuted his video for “Guts Over Fear.” The song, featuring Sia, appears on the upcoming Shady XV double album marking the 15th anniversary of Shady Records.
The video tells the story of a struggling boxer who works as a dishwasher, has an alcoholic mess of a father, and can’t pay the bills or support his pregnant girlfriend. He tries to persevere through the pain.
Eminem raps, “This is for every kid who all’s they ever did was dreamed of one day just getting accepted / I represent him or her, anyone similar, you are the reason that I made this song. And everything you’re scared to say don’t be afraid to say no more / From this day forward, just let them a-holes talk / Take it with a grain of salt and eat their f*cking faces off.” Intense stuff, as usual.
The rapper has found himself in new controversy recently, with lyrics expressing a desire to “punch Lana Del Rey right in the face,” and a feud with Iggy Azalea after he threatened to “rape” her in the song “Vegas.” The message in “Guts Over Fear” is a little more inspirational.
