Eminem and all-star locals collaborate on intense ‘Detroit Vs. Everybody’ video
Detroit stand up.
Detroit superstar rappers Eminem, Big Sean, Danny Brown, Dej Loaf, Royce da 5’9″, and Trick Trick collectively appear on 2014 track “Detroit Vs. Everybody.” The song wound up on Eminem’s Shady XV compilation, and it’s fireworks-after-ballpark-homer heated. Friday, the jarring black and white music video hit the Web.
Truth told, I didn’t listen to the song when it was making the rounds late last year. These sort of occasion-oriented collaborations have a self-importance that can be unpleasant—especially when we’re dealing with a lot of wordy, alpha dudes that like to posture and rap about rapping. But the video is a convincing, magnificent toast to the Motor City. Save for Royce and Em, the rest of the artists rarely collaborate and seeing the lot look past contracts and ride for the city inspires.
