Eminem and Adam Levine jump in the mix in the video for 50 Cent My Life.

The song debuted on The Voice this past week during a performance by 50 Cent and Adam Levine. It is 50 Cent’s new single from his forthcoming album Street King Immortal.

In the video, which was shot only a few weeks ago in Detroit, a helicopter hovers around each of the three superstars blinding their vision. While Eminem retreats on foot, 50 Cent jumps in a luxury car and speeds off. Adam Levine stands toe to toe with the bright light as he croons the hook.

This is the first time Eminem and 50 Cent have appeared on a single together since “Crack A Bottle” back in 2009. However, that single’s accompanying video did not feature either rapper. Stats for Intrusive Surveillance Music Sequences Trending: Older & Chilly
