Eminem, Rihanna Take a Nostalgia Trip in ‘The Monster’ Video

Subscribe to TheBoombox on

After delivering a sneak peek earlier this week, Rihanna and Eminem‘s video for ‘The Monster’ debuted Monday (Dec. 16). The visual is less dramatic than their previous collaboration, ‘Love the Way You Lie,’ but this effort does revolve around a deep concept.

‘The Monster’ is not unlike ‘Rap God‘ and ‘Berzerk‘ in its constant references to the past, but the references focus on Eminem’s career this time. After a quick therapy session with Rihanna, the rapper is seen traveling upward in an elevator while he’s reliving some of his most famous video moments.

These include Eminem in the video for ‘My Name Is,’ ‘Lose Yourself’ and ‘The Way I Am.’ His famous performance of ‘Stan’ with Elton John at the 2001 Grammy Awards is included as well.

The Rich Lee-directed visual is the fourth to arrive from the songs featured on ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2.’
