Headlights

Yesterday was Mother's Day, and while most of us sent flowers or took our Moms to brunch, Eminem used the special day to issue a very public apology, directed by none other than Spike Lee.

The rapper dropped the video (via Pitchfork) for "Headlights," the latest jam off his recent Marshall Mathers LP 2. And it's an about-face for the hip-hop artist, who uses the track to apologize (in a rather shouty fashion) to his mom for rising to fame by ripping her to shreds on countless other songs and records. But it's worth a look, with the POV promo shot on location in Eminem's native Detroit. 

Meanwhile, with The Criterion Collection dropping Billy Wilder's searing "Ace In The Hole" on Blu-ray last week, the boutique label gave fans a tease of the bonus features by putting Spike Lee's video afterword about the movie online. It finds the filmmaker posing with his signed poster of the movie (under its alternate title "The Big Carnival") and reflecting on the film's darkness and its forward-thinking look at the impact of the media. It's definitely a must see movie and if you haven't given it a spin, hopefully Lee pushes you to give it watch. Check out both videos below.
