Eminem Performs "Venom" Atop Empire State Building on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'
Tom Hardy isn’t the only big star taking a chomp out of the box office with Venom. Eminem contributed the action-packed title song for the Marvel adaptation, currently doing the rounds in theaters everywhere.
Having just announced a bunch of tour dates to kick off 2019, the Rap God warmed up with a performance of the Kamikaze closer on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, with New York City as his stage.
In the eight-minute clip, Em cuts loose high above a lit-up Empire State Building, spitting out lyrics in a video that has all the gloss of a fat budget trailer (but was apparently shot on a Google Pixel 3 device).
There’s a change of gears when the Detroit hip-hop great takes a slow elevator ride alongside Guillermo, as a musak version of “Venom” plays out.
Check it out below.
