Eminem Drops Trailer For "Framed" Music Video
"I was fraaaaaaamed #REVIVAL"
Eminem hit social media on Wednesday (28 March) for the release of a trailer for the music video of "Framing." Serves as the third cut from his Revival album to get the official video treatment after the "Walk On Water" and "River".
The 30-second teaser features a journalist — aptly titled Stan Dresden (probably a nod to Em's "biggest fan" and the name of the street where Em grew up) — reports from outside of the house that is the scene of an apparent homicide. Eminem is later spotted sitting on a sofa in the interior of the house, scribbling away in a notepad, surrounded by blood and bodies.

"Framed" got the attention of fans and commentators alike for with violent and controversial lyrics similar to some of Eminem's early work. The track also in the headlines of Slim Shady reference to have Ivanka Trump, stuffed in the trunk of his car.
"I woke up, it was dawn, musta knew something was wrong/ I Think I'm becomin' a monster, 'cause of the drugs I am on/ Donald Duck, there is a Truck Tonka in the yard/ But the dog, how the hell is Ivanka Trump in the trunk of my car?"
In his review of the Revival, DX Editor-in-Chief Trent Clark made specific reference to the track.
"In the hypnotically-produced" Framed, Marshall puts on the hockey mask, for old times sake and strip off homicidal fantasies, for better or worse, have the disk more in your pocket rhyme time."
