The Rolling Stone video includes clips around Eminem’s breakout in 1999, cutting together pieces from MTV, the Canadian Much network and the independent show PhatClips, which most notably shows Eminem confessing he’s “a little shroomed-out” and stating, “I don’t promote drugs.” Then a hook from his 2009 video “We Made You” plays makes for a new hook with the line, “Matter fact, make me a birthday cake.”
