Eminem is still in rare promo mode for his most recent album Music To Be Murdered By. Not long after dropping the official video for “Godzilla” featuring the late Juice Wrld, the diamond-selling MC sat down with Mike Tyson for the legendary boxer’s Hotboxin’ podcast.
In an Instagram post, Tyson revealed the episode would air on Thursday (March 19) at 6 p.m. PT. In the photo, Eminem is rocking a Biz Markie t-shirt as he poses with Tyson and his fellow Hotboxin’ co-host Eben Britton.
“Hotboxin’ with the one and only @eminem premiering live Tomorrow 3/19 at 6PM PT on YouTube.com/miketyson,” the caption read.”Tune in and live chat with us. us.#podcast#hotboxinpodcast#eminem#miketyson.”
Em famously references Tyson on his 1998 debut single “Just Don’t Give A Fuck, which samples “I Don’t Give a Fuck” by 2Pac.
“Bitch, I’m coming out swingin’, so fast it’ll make your eyes spin,” he raps. “You getting knocked the fuck out like Mike Tyson.”
Tyson also makes a cameo appearance in the “Godzilla” video alongside Dr. Dre.
Toward the end of the visual, Shady gets punched in the face by Tyson who promptly delivers an apology. Em is then rushed to the hospital where he’s treated by a doctor who is (naturally) played by Dre.
