Eminem and Lil Wayne have 'No Love' for bullies in their new video: Watch here

Bullied schoolkids of the world, take heart: You have two very powerful allies named Eminem and Lil Wayne. That’s the message of the rap stars’ new video for “No Love,” the latest single off Em’s smash Recovery.

The video opens with a close-up of a sad kid with bruises on his face, presumably from the dodgeballs three bigger guys pelt him with in the next scene. Further scenes of locker-room torment are intercut with Lil Wayne delivering his sharp, sullen opening verse on a smoky all-black set. (Presumably this is yet another of the many video scenes Wayne filmed before starting his Rikers Island sentence.) Eminem, meanwhile, is at a recording studio laying down his even angrier vocals with a very serious expression on his face. Dude is not kidding around! But our young hero is still being harassed by those older jerks. The video goes on like this for a while before the kid, empowered by Em and Weezy’s ferocious lyrics, stands up to his persecutors at last and gives them an epic lunchroom beatdown.

Check out the dramatic clip after the jump via Eminem’s official site (warning, lots of NSFW lyrics) and let us know how you like it. Who do you think gives the best performance here — Eminem, Lil Wayne, or the little guy?

    Anyone else watch this video thinking the two close ups on the 8 MILE poster is a homage to Brittany Murphy from Em?

    • chris

      thats exactly what i thought when i saw that

    • Jim

      Yeah, definitely, It was actually the only thing I saw both time was her name. So, I actually went back and paused it on one of the close ups.

      The angle of the poster and camera practically center her name. Plus, Miki Phifer is covered up and it appears lighting techniques have Eminem and Kim Basinger darkened, while Brittany Murphy seems to be highlighted.

      So yes, I agree with you that this one done intentionally.

    I think the video’s message would feel more sincere if the “song’s” “lyric” wasn’t pornographic garbage.

    • donknottz

      You say pornographic garbage I say Beautiful Art.

      • couchgrouch

        yeah, that line about a d*** in someone’s mouth was really artful. plus, I like the word n****. you don’t hear that enough in rap. he’s quite the lyrical craftsman. hey, everyone has their opinion…mine is this: a video about bullies from this wank is like a public service announcement from Larry Flynt.

    • aaron

      You are fighting a lost cause unfortunately, no one will ever here a word against Em. Calling his work art is massively over-exaggerated.

      • Casey

        Art or not. Doest it really make a difference what you call it. #1 in album sales means most like it and it helps them in some way or they would not buy it.

        I was liookng at some of your articles on this website and I conceive this web site is very informative ! Keep putting up.

    There should be no place for bullying everywhere!

  • brittany.martino

    I love lil wayn and eminem there the best rapers ever

  • EmFan

    I love this song so much, and the message. Marshall is DEFINITELY the best, illest rapper ever. No doubt about that. The way that the video is shot, is amazing. Dope.

  • Tania

    it makes perfect sense for eminem to do a video about bullies since he was bullied as a kid

  • ryan anderson

    eminem kills weezy on this track!

  • J-CULT

    It is art and it is talent. Nethier of those are an opinion it’s what it is. It’s personal taste that people get confused with opinion. Maybe you don’t perfer Lil Wayne or even Eminem but that doesn’t take away from the fact there both great lyricist. Thats the same as sayin’ “I don’t think Tiger Woods is good at golf” I don’t even like golf but I know Tiger is one of the best.

  • Geronimo

    I was bullied in the first 2 years of high school ! From the age of 13 to 15 ! I dropped outta school when i was 15 and now im 18 so i can really relate to thir video ! And i will put the d1€k in they mouth so i guess it,s fu€k what they say im high as a b1t€h ! Keep ya head up – tupac Shakur !

  • Love

    I like Em i really do, but Him lashing out on bullying is a little ironic considering the fact that he’s somewhat of a entertainment industry bully himself in his earlier years lashing out on Britney, Xtina, Mariah and the like.

  • Benjamin

    First of all that video was well shot. Not sure if I can relate to Weezy’s verse with bullying but whatever. I know people cant stand rap but I dont think they understand how difficult and complex those bars he rapped are. I am amazed every time I hear that verse.

    • Benjamin

      Just want to clarify that I meant Em’s bars.

  • james

    dido to benjamin

  • splash

    em is an example of what comes from being bullied spite toughness anger and rap is about imposing your energy your skill i.e will so its not that hypocritical but then everyone is a hypocrit n some way so enjoy the music or not also did anyone notice kevin federline

  • ryda

    Splash…thats not KFED, its Alchemist, Em’s DJ

    • Daniel

      I am likoong for celtic earrings to match a necklace that my sister received about 8 years ago from an Irish/celtic store in Billings, MT. The color tones of the heathergem stone is more to the sage greens and autumn toned oranges. The ones that I saw on your website appeared to be to intense of colors. It would be nice to give for Christmas but if I can find the right color tones that is the most important. Any help would be appreciated. We live in Montana so a US ship point would hopefully help with cost to ship.
