After scoring hits with his clips for "The Real Slim Shady" and "The Way I Am," rap's king of controversy, Eminem, is getting ready to step back in front of the cameras.
Next week, Em will meet up with the two-man directing team of Dr. Dre and Phillip Atwell in Los Angeles to shoot a video for Em's tale of fan obsession, "Stan," the next single from his "The Marshall Mathers LP."
Spokespeople for Em said the clip will once again be a concept-based affair, and that two versions are being readied: a regular-length video and an extended version.
The rapper's reps also said that trip-hop songbird Dido will turn up in the video. The singer's "Thank You" is sampled throughout "Stan," and Em's rep said that Dido may turn up as Stan's girlfriend in the clip.
Em hit gold with the first two videos off "The Marshall Mathers LP," as the clip for "The Way I Am" has been a staple on MTV's "Total Request Live" since its debut, and "The Real Slim Shady" took home
Video Of The Year honors at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards.
