Eminem’s Baseball Video
Eminem's latest kicked off the World Series pre-game show and incited talk in the online community about his new album.
In the opening of the World Series pre-game Sunday (Oct. 22), FOX aired the network premiere of Eminem’s “You Don’t Know,” his new track off Eminem Presents: The Re-Up (out Dec. 5) featuring 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, and Cashis. The clip features atypical video fodder for the Aftermath rapper, as it alternates between shots of Em, 50, and crew as they rap, and baseball highlights featuring Em’s hometown Detroit Tigers and the St. Louis Cardinals. The video isn’t the song’s official one, but it has incited chatter in the online community regarding Em’s forthcoming album, the anticipated follow-up to last year’s hits album that was rumored to be his retirement release, Curtain Call.

“The good news is, everything I’ve heard so far leads me to believe it will be worth the long wait.” — fresh, 33jones.com
“If anyone has the remotest clue what Eminem and his friends sang (rapped?) in the rousing musical interlude provided by the programming introduction, could they email me? On second thought…never mind.” — coalitionoftheswilling.net
