One night last week, many New Yorkers wondered why helicopters surrounded the Empire State Building and "disbanded" the famous landmark's famous lights – and they got their response last night: Eminem did on Monday night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" as part of New York Week a burning version of "Venom" played from inside and up on the building. (It's actually based in Brooklyn, but who's arguing?)
"KING KONG AINT GOT $ # *! ON ME! EMpire State Building is where it happened tonight @jimmykimmellive " The rapper tweeted Monday Evening, and the elaborate shoot was the bill. Cameras followed Em as he knocked through the lobby of the building into an elevator (where a microphone fell from the ceiling to the upper floors and finally dropped to the upper balconies while the lights pulsed in different colors. Em also shows some low-key Comedy-chops as he drives the elevator back.
Earlier this month, the MC released a video for the song, the final track on its surprise album "Kamikaze," to cover the release of the Marvel film directed by Ruben Fleischer with Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott and Tom Hardy in the title role.
