Eminem Revisits Slim Shady Through the Years With New “Houdini” Video f/ Dr. Dre and Pete Davidson

Naturally, longtime Em fans met the news of Slim’s death with playful skepticism, namely pointing to the 2009 song “My Darling” as a possible sign of Slim’s inability to be killed. As posited in that Relapse cut, Slim is actually “a spirit,” seemingly conferring unto him a Michael Myers–esque stature that can’t be stopped by mere human antics.

Adding to the mournful hype, of course, is the obituary for Slim that recently ran in the Detroit Free Press newspaper.
