When I'm Gone was definitely cut from Encore

    • Half the video is 2004 Em with blonde hair​
    • one of the scenes is literally from the Encore cover photo shoot.​
    • the tracksuit durag backwards cap section is literally a seperate video spliced together​
    • the 2005 sections were spliced into the original video judging by look/the original video being spliced in and out at the beginning while he's rapping the entire first verse in both versions of the video​
    Begs the question, why was When I'm Gone cut from Encore if it even had a video filmed, and who said When I'm Gone (which had a video and is one of the best encore era songs) was a worse choice than Puke, Ass Like That, Big Weenie, etc.

    Maybe the label felt Mockingbird and When I'm Gone were too similar?

    I believe they already had Curtain Call in the plan and decided to save it for CC, not cut from Encore cause it was a bad track, it was just a smarter move to put it on CC. Just my speculation

    @henzINNIT the discussion we had earlier... if he put trash songs above When Im Gone... he's also capable of leaving a great song w Nate Dogg off... hmm

    I bought you this coin, it says number one dad... this song was always so corny to me.

    That said, you make some valid points.

    Not true. Although the first verse was written in 02/03.

    it's literally proven in the video. He didn't magically return to Encore look and weight and photo shoot location in the middle of recording. Plus some lines start on video a and end in video b so the latter one was definitely a redub and they cut it together

    When I’m gone means he knew he was gonna die and get cloned telling his daughters it’s okay daddy’s in heaven watching over you. So sad to think about.

    So he recorded a music video for it before recording the song and just happened to perfectly lip sync the words. Makes sense..

    Again I agree in theory, but it is not the case with 'When I'm Gone'. He sounds noticeably different in the song and it's clearly from a later time. The evidence presented here is faulty. Em looks like shit in the entire video. It wasn't recorded for Encore, Curtain Call just recycled a lot of the same imagery. It's not hard to dig up props from an album photo session a year before. .

    You can tell by the weight differences and different hair that they are clearly different time periods. The same people from the photos are in the video too, you telling me they got every single extra to come back a year later to do it?
    Plus the voice differences can be explained depending on what drugs he was using at the time or maybe he had a cold.

    how do people still not get this

    nobody thought the trash songs on encore were better than the obv good ones, most of the said good ones got leaked so as a final “f--k you” for ems planned retirement album he replaced them all with troll songs

    its really simple, yall got some dense noggins

    There is this thing called editing. People use it to inter-cut footage shot at different times to look as seamless as possible. It is clear that some parts of the stage routine were recycled from the Encore promo material. He looks out of shape the whole time, there are some straight-up weird looking shots of him in the suit that look like bad special effects. Eminem having blonde hair for some parts is not evidence. He died it, often.
    .
    Your theory is fun, but a whole lot less likely than the simple, logical answer: He recorded the song for his greatest hits album and re-used some visual assets for the music video.
