NEW YORK, Nov. 27 (UPI) — Eminem’s video for “When I’m Gone” recounts the rap superstar’s recent stint in rehab for dependency on prescription sleeping pills.
The video opens in a large room with adults in a 12-step type meeting. A speaker is describing how his life has been changed for the better since breaking his addiction — and in the group listening is a black-haired Eminem, MTV.com reported.
The rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, takes the podium and announces: “My name is Marshall.” Then the song kicks in.
The video was directed by Anthony Mandler in the rapper’s hometown of Detroit and is set to make its debut Monday on MTV.
Eminem’s latest album, “Curtain Call,” is due in stores Dec. 6.
