Slaughterhouse + Eminem Living the Highlife in ‘My Life’ Video Featuring Cee Lo Green
How rich is Eminem? Em is so rich that he bathes in the tears of struggling rappers and gets fed grapes by his trained tyrannosaurus rex. Now that’s ballin’ out of control. Actually, it’s the premise of Slaughterhouse’s new video ‘My Life’ featuring Cee Lo Green.
In the beginning of the clip, Eminem is featured in a long ‘Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous’-type parody skit called ‘Rappers are Richer Than You.’ The Detroit rapper is described as a “gazillionaire” in a voiceover by Robin Leach as he extols Em’s rich lifestyle that includes a garage of 300 Chrysler 300 vehicles.
Later, we get to meet Shady Records motley crew of MCs — Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, Royce da 5’9″ and Joe Budden — as they flaunt their wealth and health. Crooked I is wheeling a brand new car, Joel is vacationing on an exotic island, Budden is getting harassed by paparazzi and Royce is performing in the spotlight. Cee Lo Green makes a cameo in the video singing the inspiring hook.
The video, directed by the Syndrome, is poking fun at celebrity but its also celebrating how far each of the members have come from their not-so humble beginnings. Slaughterhouse have been through some rough times so it’s good to see them enjoy the highlife.
