As promised, Eminem has delivered a proper visual for the Music To Be Murdered By track “Godzilla” featuring the late Juice Wrld. Directed by Cole Bennett, the visual begins with Shady drinking some “Godzilla Whiskey” as he raps about how alcohol can turn him into a monster.

Most Em fans know Shady has been sober for nearly 12 years, so it’s easy to come to the conclusion the scene is a metaphor for what addiction can do to a person. From there, Shady’s face is transposed to other people’s bodies as the real Shady continues to slam all kinds of liquor and stumble all over the place. Toward the end of the visual, Em gets punched in the face by Mike Tyson who promptly delivers an apology. Nevertheless, he must then go the hospital where Dr. Dre is playing — yep! — a doctor alongside another Eminem clone.
Slim Shady announced a proper visual for the track on March 6 and revealed director Cole Bennett was behind the lens.
