That’s the last you’re going to see of Tiger Stadium — [artist id="502642"]Eminem[/artist] filmed a portion of his new video “Beautiful” at the historic ballpark. Slim Shady performs a part of the record at the stadium as some little-leaguers look on, in a clip that leaked on the Internet Wednesday (July 1). The clip also shows images of Em walking around his hometown of Detroit and includes shots of landmarks like the Michigan Central Train Station and the Packard Motor Car Company.
Em recently told RapRadar.com he wanted to pay homage to some of his hometown landmarks.
“Tiger Stadium is being torn down, and the train station is supposed to be demolished too. This video is one of the last times anybody outside of Detroit is going to see them,” Em said. “I wrote ‘Beautiful’ when I was really down, during a difficult time struggling with my addiction. It’s a reminder to keep your head up, and to see who you really are despite what you may be going through. Now that I’ve gotten through the toughest part, I see how the song relates to Detroit, and it feels even more powerful to me.”
Em recently called into his Shade 45 satellite radio station and said that he was working on Relapse 2. Although he had enough material to release a LP now, he wanted to work on new material. The MC also said he would be headlining the Voodoo Festival, beginning October 30 in New Orleans.
