“Tobey” marks the second single off of Em’s upcoming twelfth studio album “The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce),” releasing July 12. The song, which dropped last Tuesday, sees the rapper taking issue with legend Melle Mel after stated that Em was only included on a top five best rappers list because he is white.

Em fired back, stating, “So when I get dissed though by a pioneer who is one of the reasons why I am here / They tell me that I should just let the shit go and slide / Melle Mel shouldn’t get no reply, that man is a legend / Bitch, so am I.”

The video for “Tobey” comes in anticipation of “The Death of Slim Shady,” which Em announced in April during the NFL Draft in his hometown of Detroit. To share news of the album, he released a trailer inspired by “Unsolved Mysteries” and later placed an obituary in the Detroit Free Press eulogizing his Slim Shady alter ego.

In the time since, he released the project’s first single “Houdini” at the end of May, referencing Megan Thee Stallion, Steve Miller Band and his 2002 single “Without Me.” Aside from the singles, little else is known about “The Death of Slim Shady” other than the fact that Dr. Dre previously stated that he contributed production.
