Things get elevated when Eminem enters the building.
A rapper of Eminem’s stature deserves something special when delivering a live performance. The “Killshot” rapper was the musical guest on Monday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and as per usual he did things his own way.
Instead of performing in front of the studio audience, Eminem made his way up the Empire State Building.
During the ascent, he performed “Venom” from his headline-making Kamikaze album and the movie of the same name, starring Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, and Riz Ahmed.
Halfway through the song, the Real Slim Shady shared an elevator ride with Guillermo Rodriguez. Making small talk, Eminem hit Guillermo with some straight-up knowledge, sharing facts about the building’s construction.
Kamikaze was a surprise album released by Eminem on Aug. 31. It has since soared to the top of the charts in 18 countries.
