Eminem Makes Amends With His Mother in ‘Headlights’ Video

Subscribe to TheBoombox on

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Eminem addresses his tumultuous relationship with his mother in his new video for ‘Headlights.’

In the heartfelt clip, directed by Spike Lee, we follow Slim Shady’s mother, Debbie Mathers, as she makes several attempts to reunite with her son after years of being estranged from him. The video also features personal footage and photos of Em’s childhood growing up in 8 mile in Detroit.

It’s unclear if Debbie Mathers is actually involved in the video because we don’t see her face. At the end of the visual, she sheds tears while reading an apologetic letter from her son.

“It’s a great, great story. It’s heartfelt, some pain in it, but that’s life,” said Lee about the cinematic video. “So that’s why we’re here, back in the ‘hood, 8 Mile Detroit, shooting where all this took place.”

Happy Mother’s Day!
