Grammy-winning rapper Eminem has decided to treat fans to a visual for his “Not Afraid” single by releasing its music video next weekend.
Writing via Twitter, Em broke the news late Saturday (May 29) night.

The single made Billboard history earlier this month.
Eminem will join a very elite club tomorrow when the new Billboard Hot 100 singles chart is unveiled. “Not Afraid” is the lead single from Eminem’s new album “Recovery,” due out on June 22. The single is the first to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since Oct. 17, 2009, when Britney Spears‘ “3” danced in at No. 1. “Afraid” is only the second rap single to start at No. 1 following “I’ll Be Missing You” by Puff Daddy & Faith Evans featuring 112, which began its 11-week run at the summit on the chart dated June 14, 1997.

Last week, Em also treated fans to the unveiling of his album’s two artwork covers.
Just ripped these from Em’s site. I’m sure higher resolutions will come soon. Hit the jump for the second one. If I had to guess, I would say the first image represents everyone watching him, and the second is supposed to show “the long road to Recovery” for him. Just personal thoughts. Any other ideas?
