Is Eminem the true rap god? Twitter sure seems to think so. Marshall Mathers released a new single today called “Rap God” and his disciples have been tweeting out their praise all morning.
Kendrick is the conscious. Nas is the mind. Drake is the heart. Kanye is the persona. Cole is the soul but Eminem is #RAPGOD.”

Eminem’s new song comes in at just over 6 minutes long and, according to some dedicate music fan at the Bro Bible, contains 6077 words. That’s about 4 words per second. If that doesn’t impress you, scroll to the 4:13 mark and listen as Eminem starts spitting like Busta Rhymes.
Eminem’s new song has been praised for its lyrical acrobatics. Marshall Mathers hits on everything from misogyny, Norse Gods, hip-hop icons, and alcoholism.
For ANYONE to sit there and act like #rapgod isn’t a lyrical blessing from one of the dopest wordsmiths ever is just based on your own hate.

Rap God hit iTunes at midnight last night. It is the third song off of Eminem’s new alum, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which will hit stores on November 5.
