Eminem: “Rap God”

Man, the internet just moves too quick. Eminem attempted to tease out his latest single, “Rap God,” off his upcoming album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. The plans were to release a series of clues, but the song leaked in Europe before the first hint could hit the net, thus the stream via Youtube below. The song, as far as beats are concerned, is very different for Shady, with some of the electronic and house-y elements that grew out of his hometown and now grace neon festivals across the country. As always, Em is on point with his flow, riding a frenetic beat that would give even the best MC a headache and tied tongue. Perhaps it’s a beat made for a Rap God? Decide for yourself below.

Favorite Line: “I don’t know how to make songs, I don’t know what words to use/Let me know when it occurs to you/While I’m ripping any of these verses”
