Bandgang Lonnie Bands Evokes Eminem in “Where Is Marshall” Video

A student of hip-hop with a sharp sense of humor, Bandgang Lonnie Bands has a way with punchlines that would make fellow Detroiter Eminem proud. Paying tribute to Detroit’s most famous rap export in his new video, Lonnie shares Where Is Marshall.” The song is produced by L.A. sound architect Cypress Moreno, who mutates Dr. Dre’s classic beat for “The Real Slim Shady” by adding the distorted 808s and bouncy snares of modern Michigan rap. Using his own nonchalant, sing-song flow, Lonnie recounts growing up not far from Eminem’s home and brags about “breaking bad like I’m Heisenberg” and having “dope so good the fiends stalk you.” Directed by Anfy, the video deposits Lonnie in a trailer park not dissimilar to where Marshall Mathers grew up, as the 6 Mile rapper stars in moments that evoke Em’s best videos, including “The Real Slim Shady,” “My Name Is,” “Forgot About Dre,” and “Lose Yourself.” “Where Is Marshall” is a highlight track from Hard 2 KillLonnie’s acclaimed album, released in October.
