50 Cent, Eminem, and Adam Levine are on the run in “My Life.”
50 Cent is easily one of the richest rappers around. (Dude made $177K selling his 50 Over-The-Ear headphones on QVC!) So we just have to know, when you’re as PAID as 50 and have famous friends like Eminem and Adam Levine, why would the police, special forces, or a small nation’s army be after you in the video for “My Life”? We just thought maybe you’d have your own private hideaway island with impenetrable walls and a shark moat or something. Wait, that makes you sound like a supervillain. Well, you know what we mean.
Watch 50 Cent featuring Eminem and Adam Levine’s “My Life” video after the jump.
In the dark, action-packed clip, we see the three musicians (and millionaires) in dire straights, though they never really explain why. Adam is concealed in a warehouse behind a bunch of crates (perfect place for hiding), Eminem is running from a helicopter, and 50 is behind the wheel of a luxury vehicle (natch) in a high-speed chase. What did these guys do, anyway?? OK, we get that their escape is probably more a metaphor for their problems, but still, it’s kinda crazy that three dudes who probably own helicopters themselves are so desperate to escape a fleet of them. These guys could probably afford IRL fighter jets, just sayin’. Well, if we were 50, Adam, or Em, we’d blow off the stress of being baller (mo money mo problems, right?) in one of our mansions, feet up, and stuffing our faces with the finest potato chips. (Like, KALE CHIPS. Those are expensive potato chips, right? Never mind.) And if we REALLY needed to run, maybe we’d do like an hour on the treadmill. But that’s probably what makes these guys different than us.
