Eminem Recruits Fellow Detroit Natives Big Sean & Babytron for Ominous ‘Tobey’ Single: Watch the Trailer

Eminem fans will have more reason to celebrate Independence Day after Slim Shady announced plans for his second album single, out next week.

The Detroit native is connecting three different generations of rappers out of The D with Em recruiting Babytron and Big Sean to hop on the menacing “Tobey.” Eminem gave fans a glimpse into the track’s horror theme with a trailer on Friday (June 28).


“TOBEY@babytron @bigsean new music 7/2 video 7/5 by @colebennett,” Em captioned the clip revealing “Tobey” will arrive on Tuesday, July 2, with a Cole Bennett-helmed music video coming two days later, on Friday, July 5.

The clip finds Em in a Jason Voorhees goalie mask revving a chainsaw and gushing blood while slicing up a body. Babytron and Big Sean watch Eminem’s gruesome butchering in tow without batting an eye.

The ticking ominous production begins and Big Sean gets off the only Spider-Man referencing bar heard in the clip. “Tobey Maguire got bit by a Spider, but me, see it was a goat,” he raps.

Fans had plenty to say about the upcoming single in Em’s comment section. “We got Eminem x Baby Tron before GTA6,” one wrote while another added: “Baby ft big sounds hilarious!”

“Tobey” marks Em’s first collab with Babytron and fourth with Big Sean following their team-up in 2017 on I Decided’s “No Favors,” Detroit 2‘s “Friday Night Cypher” and ShadyXV‘s “Detroit Vs. Everybody.”

Eminem’s The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce) will serve as his 12th studio album and is slated to arrive at some point this summer.

The 51-year-old kicked off the album rollout with his nostalgic “Houdini” single, which gave Em his highest-charting track of the decade when it debuted at No. 2 on the Hot 100.

Watch the “Tobey” trailer below. Look for the single to hit streaming services on July 3.
