Rap legend Eminem's new music video for "Darkness" recreated the 2017 Las Vegas shooting from the perspective of the attacker.

In a shadowy hotel room littered with alcohol, prescription drugs, and AR-15 rifles, a lone man pulled back the curtains at exactly 10:05 p.m. local time to aim and fire out the window at a crowd of music festival-goers.

The harrowing scene comes from rapper Eminem's newest music video for the track "Darkness," the first single in his anticipated album "Music to Be Murdered By." The chilling video released today was a call to expand gun control, and it recreated the 2017 Las Vegas shooting in which Stephen Paddock fired at a crowd attending the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival from his 32nd-floor hotel room.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: A podiatrist explains heel spurs, the medical condition Trump said earned him a medical deferment from VietnamSee Also:Packers star linebacker cried after signing a 66 million contract, then went to his mom's job and asked if she was ready to retireThe best bed sheets24 books C-suite leaders and billionaire investors say all entrepreneurs should read to become better leaders
