Eminem channels the glitchy 80's TV icon Max Headroom in the official video for "Rap God" - a staccato standout from his MMLP2 - directed by Rich Lee. The video follows his recent one-on-one interview with Zane Lowe. The Detroit MC switches themes throughout the video for the 6-minute lyrical blackout, drawing inspiration from familiar markers of the era including cyborg robots and the unforgettable face of Hellraiser.
