The black and white video for “Detroit Vs. Everybody” features Royce da 5’9″, Loaf, Danny Brown, Big Sean, Dej Loaf, Trick-Trick, and Eminem rapping in various Detroit locations. All of the Detroit native rappers are shown rapping on either the top of a skyscraper overlooking Detroit or in a dilapidated building. The video does an amazing job at capturing the beauty of Detroit, but also showing the bleak nature of Detroit’s lower-socioeconomic neighborhoods.
