It's a busy time for Eminem and Rihanna. The pair are gearing up for "The Monster" North American mini-tour and are shooting the video for the song of the same name.

The clip above features behind-the-scene footage from filming as Eminem's manager, Paul Rosenberg, explains the concept for the video through a voicemail message to the rapper.

In the music video, Eminem is sitting down with a therapist, played by Rihanna. He drifts off to sleep and awakes in an elevator, which takes him to different floors of his life. We see plenty of flashbacks from the videos he's famous for.

At the end he finally meets "the monster." What is it? You'll have to watch.
