Eminem's "Framed" is a delightfully twisted reminder of the "Relapse" days.
It's a breath of fresh air for those of us who consider Relapse to be Eminem's most underappreciated project. While we lament the death and burial of Relapse 2, there's always "Framed" to tide us over. The eerie Revival standout immediately emerged as a fan favorite, and now, Em has come through with a gruesome video for the macabre tale of mistaken identity. Harkening back to the horror-film aura of "3 AM," Framed is one accent short of a Relapse cut, with cinematography reminiscent of Em's Dr. Dre produced horrorcore banger. Some might be put off by the unsettling direction. Others may view this as a welcome return to form.
Admittedly, Revival was not an album for everybody. Still, it's cool to see "Framed" get some love, especially considering the gruesome lyrical content. Check out the video below, and sound off. Are ya'll down for this side of Em to make a return?
