So 6077 words, 6 minutes & 364 seconds of intricate word play and rapid-fire rhymes that reminds not only fans but rappers world-wide, who the real #RapGod is. The song Rap God is off of his forthcoming Marshall Mathers LP 2, which is due to hit stores November 5th 2013.
Everyone has been wondering what they could expect from the legendary Detroit rapper. But I think it’s safe to say The Real Slim Shady has officially stood back up. If you don’t agree, then you haven’t heard the new song yet. So what are people saying about this self-proclaimed label of a Rap God?
Reading through the hashtag results for #RapGod will show that people of all parts of the world are calling it the best rapping they’ve ever heard in their lives. Lots of listeners particularly point out Eminems ridiculous rapid-fire delivery at the 4:26 mark where he spits out 4 words per second. I’m sure it took RapGenius’s millions of users a lot of team work to come up with the accurate lyrics of what Shady is trying to say.

The director, James Larese, of Eminem’s video for “Berzerk,” a new song, told Eric Lacy of MLive last week that Slim Shady is “hungry” to deliver an old school hip hop feel on the new album & wants to recapture “that feeling of why we fell in love with the hip hop genre to begin with.”
