Eminem's "Detroit vs. Everybody" Video Has Big Sean, Danny Brown, More

Update (1/23/15): It's been a minute since Eminem's double-disc Shady XV hit shelves, but the Detroit all-star cut "Detroit vs. Everybody" is still a standout—and now it's got a music video. The song features newcomer Dej Loaf on the hook, plus Big SeanDanny Brown, Trick Trick and Royce Da 5'9'' (the other half of Em's Bad Meets Evil duo). Filmed in Detroit in black-and-white, the clip features an in-person appearance from every MC involved. Check it out above.

Eminem also recently released a video for his Shady XV collaboration with Sia"Guts Over Fear."

Original Story: While Eminem is threatening a certain pop star with his latest "SHADY CXVPHER," the Detroit-bred MC also revealed a much less violent Shady XV cut today with the gutsy "Detroit vs. Everybody." The hip-hop joint features an all-star cast of Motor City MCs including Big SeanDanny Brown, Bad Meets Evil rapper Royce Da 5'9'', veteran rapper/producer Trick Trick and hotly tipped newcomer Dej Loaf.

Throughout the six-minute affair, each act waxes on their particular relationship with their home city. Em spits, "I was daydreamin' one day I would be the sh*t / And if I ever end up escapin' the streets I swear that I would stay here / Still in it, I'm crazy, I'll always be real / Don't make me steal an 18-wheeler / Break all of my friends out of here and take 'em straight to the Mercedes dealer." Meanwhile, Sean drops the thought-provoking line, "Welcome to Detroit where if you get that promotion / Don't worry, man them bullets will still be at your ass firin', I still call it safe / I would suck if I was umpirin'."

The beat comes from Statik Selektah (who's a Massachusetts native, womp womp) while Dej Loaf handles the anthemic hook. "Detroit vs. Everybody" is the latest Shady VX track following Em's Sia-assisted "Guts Over Fear" and Slaughterhouse's "Y'all Ready Know."  

Shady XV features 12 new tracks (along with a disc of classic Shady Records releases) and drops November 24. Check out Fuse's complete guide to the album for more in-depth info.
