Eminem Releases "Rap God" Song From "The Marshall Mathers LP 2"

Eminem has released "Rap God," a selection from his forthcoming "The Marshall Mathers LP 2."

Eminem has released “Rap God,” a selection from his forthcoming The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Clocking in at more than six minutes, the song's intro features the Detroit rapper saying, “Six minutes, Slim Shady you’re on,” a play off of similar lyrics from Doug E. Fresh and The Get Fresh Crew’s 1985 single “The Show."

Eminem then begins his rap with the song’s chorus. “I’m beginning to feel like a rap god, rap god,” Eminem raps on the song, which is scheduled to be available on iTunes at midnight EST (October 15), according to Eminem’s Facebook page. “All my people from the front to back nod, back nod.”

In the second verse of “Rap God,” Eminem says he uses music “as a vehicle to bust a rhyme / Now I lead a new school full of students.” That reference is a nod to Leaders of the New School, the early 1990s rap group of which Busta Rhymes was a member before he embarked upon a solo recording career.

Also in the second verse, Eminem says he’s a product of Rakim, Lakim Shabazz, 2Pac and N.WA.

In the song’s third verse, Eminem says his rhymes could help people through tough times. He also recounts Ray J’s beef with Fabolous. He then references J. J. Fad’s 1988 single “Supersonic” and raps in a rapid-fire manner similar to the one M.C.J.B., Baby-D and Sassy C used on the cut, which was produced by Dr. Dre, DJ Yella and Arabian Prince.

Eminem ends the song by saying, “Why be a king when you can be a god?”

The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is scheduled to be released November 5. Eminem released the collection’s tracklist Thursday (October 10). “Rap God” is the ninth song on the set, which is slated to feature 16 tunes, including the previously released single "Berzerk," which has been certified platinum.

    Eminem went at this whole industry with this track, used all their flows against them... you can hear A$aP/meek mill flow in the beggining. Yelawolf flow when he goes fast, kendrick, schoolboy q, ab-soul, hopsin, tech 9, he went at everybody and used a corny beat they would use. You can tell this is his response to that Control Verse

  • Drake runs rap

    eminem is garbage nothing but trash singles with horrible beats and annoying flow. EMINEM FELL THE FUCK OFF JUST ACCEPT IT WHITE BOYS. Drake is the king he had the biggest hits the biggest sales he runs this rap shit in 2013. Drake runs the rap game now its a fact deal with it you fuck boys.

    • this

      "Drake is the king he had the biggest hits the biggest sales he runs this rap shit in 2013." Take your mainstream biggest-hits shit and go circle jerk with the other non-thinking can't-do-art-or-appreciate-it-on-my-own punks. Take your biggest sales and invest in that circle jerk then let me know it all works out. It's funny you didn't mention talent, intellect, skill, art, soul, any of that. That's what music is. That's how artists create. Ain't everybody gonna like it, because it wasn't meant for the mass crowds and the same beat with shitty lyrics. When it is, dumb mother fuckers like you put it to the top of charts and call it "on top". On top means you just lost money to a million dollar record label so you can go rub your dick up against some chick at the club yelling "this my boy! drake's my boy! while spilling the shit and acting like you are him for a moment. Feeling shitty the next day with your sheets to the side and by yourself, you're bound to repeat. Mainstream, no-depth motha fucka. It's art, mother fucker, not feed for the sheep. But you is the feed, and that is fine with me. My wisdom is to spot the mindless fucks that can't create their own. Spotted.

      drake??? dnt get me wrong, drake has got some very good songs, but lyrically hes not better than em. drake cries a lot on his albums, sometimes i feel like i have to wear a tampon just to get through the whole thing.

      The amount of views and downloads for this song alone just killed your argument that was based on sales, and Bezerk is plat already. Don't get falling off confused with falling back. Flop really?

    • drake runs rap

      drake makes better music its a fact. No1 can replay these trash eminem songs with horrible beats he may rap good lyrics but this is still awfull music. It fucking sucks. Drake makes good music he has so many top hits out this year while eminem only has 1. Eminem keeps flopping and producing garbage. Just deal with facts dont get too emotional fuckboy stans. IN 2013 DRAKE IS THE FACE OF RAP AND EMINEM FELL THE FUCK OFF.

      Em still got it, but I understand how you want Detroit rap to sound Guilty Simpson and Elzhi come to mind too. But Em is mainstream and for mainstream this is pretty advanced, not saying much but it is.

  • Real Em Fan

    This song is horrible. The last time we saw Em in his prime was Encore, which is sad if you think about it. There were also some bright spots on The Re-Up (No Apologies, Public Enemy). Em ditched the "real" Encore (We As Americans, Love You More, etc.) and intentionally made a bad album that he knew everyone would hate. He wanted a vacation (or was forced to take one by the Powers that Be who didn't like him getting political), and probably assumed he could make a comeback whenever he wanted. But, as Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney and John Lennon could tell you, artists have primes. Em is no longer in his prime, and no amount of lyrical acrobatics can change that depressing fact. Expecting Em to write another album as good as the MMLP is like asking Dylan to whip up another Blonde on Blonde. All I'm saying is, don't get your hopes up, folks - the Real Slim Shady is history. Go back to his Name Trilogy and appreciate the genius he once was, because at this point the new stuff is just getting embarrassing, and the sad thing is I doubt Em even realizes it.

      em knows hes not who he used to be but as long as he still makes the rappers on the radio look like they arnt even trying them I say keep it goin. ems a beast and once the whole albums out and everyone has their own favorite song and everyone is on his bang wagon again then we'll see

  • Anonymous

    Em can still let rip and technically he still has some bars. But is it something I'll be listening to in the long run, not really. No real substance, but it's cool for what it is. No need for all these stans to wet their pants. His other two singles were still trash and to belong to an album called MMLP 2 - they're not up to scratch. But hey, he's still gonna sell at least 750k in the first week so who cares?

    Rappers are having a tough time period here's a maxiPAD it's actually Dizastrously bad" is a shot at CANIBUS because Canibus battled an MC named Dizaster and Canibus was destroyed the worst part is Canibus pulls out a notePAD henceforth EMINEM saying maxiPAD and Dizastrously bad check the battle out Dizaster vs Canibus it's on YouTube you're welcome

    If Jay Z dropped this today they would begin construction of his GOAT statue in NY by tomorrow. But he didn't. White boy did. This country is too stupid to see the brilliance behind skin color and its sad and pathetic. Fuck skin color, haters, racists, and bitches. Em is the greatest alive. Kiss my ass.

    • Anonymous

      You're joking right? I agree there would be an incredible amount of people on jay's dick if he dropped this, but guess what... there are just as many people on em's. In fact I bet there are far more people riding em's dick, you're acting like he's underrated or something while he's actually one of the best selling rappers of all time. And by the way, I think this track is trash no matter who it came from.

    • fuccya

      Well coz it obviously would sound too brilliant for jay-z... he will get some inspiration... ugh i mean he'll bite some bars off this track. Then get applaused for his shitty result. Goat statue of Hov is too impossible and unreal even for country this stupid. Anyway, good song

    • yup

      co sign idk how ppl can even begin comparing jay to em lyrically. and flow wise?? even more impossible to try to give jay more props lol *awwwwwww* get that faggot shit outta here jay

  • Da truth

    Here are my 2 cents on the track. Pros: decent Eminem song for current time and standards better than Bezerk or Survival production was tolerable, no improvement though. MMLP2 will probably be best album since The Eminem Show Few good bars here and there Some glimmer of hope and a sense of how great he can be lyrically Flow was on point, double time shit was cool Cons: this is NOT Slim Shady Eminem just spits out recycled trash now most of his songs ( and song names) are so boring and cliche MMLP2 is NOT going to be what anyone wants it to be, it will not sound anywhere near MMLP and my guess is that its gonna be straight up throw away ass. Im tired of Eminem giving me false hope on the return of Slim Shady, hes just using it as a sale/promo/hype tactic Why isnt eminem producing anymore? And if he is why has he not released an unofficial single off the album where he does produce. I often like his sound. hook was very underwhelming, did not live up to song title. Outdone by Kanye West and Jay-Z one who just repeats I AM A GOD and another who just repeats CROWN, but hey, they sound way better than this trash. No where near his potential, he fell off dude.

      This dude said eminem is not mainstream and doesn't rap what other people rap about? Yo horror core existed way before he did. So did the melodramatic baby mama shit. I can't stand these white eminem fans. This nigga made a song with rihanna and that nigga from FUN on this album...dude is as mainstream as it gets. He'll have a corny love song and niggas will argue that it ain't. This shit is a losing battle. We ain't writing from experience or we DON'T ACT LIKE WE KNOW EMINEM. Fuck out of here. We write cause we grew up listening to hip-hop, and we're are given the chance to critic the song, just like every other song on this site. If it's fire, then props will be given (check nas's song rating). If it's shit (this song) we call it out for what it is. But eminem fans get so offended and say "But yo hes real hip hop". Nah he WAS real hip-hop and that was long time ago. Nas ain't making corny songs. Rakim ain'rpulling no gimmicky shit. Niggas trying rap as fast as he can and call himself a god, with a weak ass song? Fuck outta here dun.

      I disagree, this is probably the worst track I've heard off MMLP 2 so far. Did not like the production, did not like the content, didn't really like anything. I was hoping this would be the best album since the eminem show but from what I've heard so far it doesn't seem to look that way. I wouldn't say this offers a glimmer of hope, but that little bit of hope Hell The Sequel gave me is still there. Yeah, I agree he had a couple of good bars here and there. And you're 100% right, so far this doesn't seem like it has anything to do with MMLP. It has nothing to do with it except for sharing a name and the front cover is in a similar style to the original. The tracks don't feel anything like the first album, it don't deal with any of the same content, he doesn't have any of the same features... sure you don't need all of these things I just listed, or any of them for a matter of fact, BUT YOU NEED SOME CONNECTION TO THE ORIGINAL ALBUM. I really can't see any connection between MMLP 1 and 2, so apart from a marketing gimmick, what's the point of calling it a 'sequel'.

      You are writing like you could've made it better.. Saying what he did wrong and what he did right.. But ayee im sure you know it better.. You probs got more experience than eminem i mean he's only in the game for a quarter century... If you really KNEW eminem you would understand that he doesnt give a shit about people like you... Why would it need to sound like MMLP??only cuz its the second part? Bud, that was a decade ago... He got older.. He is 40, 41 in 2 days.. What would you think seeing a 40 year old man jumping around in baggypants making fun of people like he did back in the early albums? That'd be fucked up exactly... He still is not mainstream, he still raps about things no one else rapps about or not anymore..

      LOL....... First of all, why would it need to be Slim shady? It's clearly eminem who's rapping on this track.. The songs on the MMLP were not all sang by "slim shady" there were songs sang by eminem as well. for example "marshall mathers". 2. it's a 6 minute song with NO hook.. so wtf is u talkin about? Did u even listen to the lyrics? u is dumb shit dog aint lied.. swear u int got shit to say.. fuck kanye u ass licking bastard

      Dude, I'm on the same boat. Em killed this. Of course he can do better. But thats not what its about. Bezerk made it platinum, which means that actual living people bought it.

    the song is about how he is the only genuine rapper for the kids to listen to and be inspired to make real rap. for example Emcees get taken to school with this music cause I use it as a vehicle to bust a rhyme Now I lead a new school of students Me, Im a product of Rakim, Lakim, Shahbaz, 2Pac, N.W.A., Cube, Doc, Ren, Yella, Eazy, thank you they got Slim Inspired enough to one day grow up, blow up and be in a position" and that even if he was to do a pop beat or a rock beat he is still the only one to do rap like old school artist on a new school artist beat and to still pay homage to how rap was created (that explains the beat being like it is cause it shows his ability to keep up with the times and still keep touch of the past) he is stating what so many people believed and this will taken as his cockiest song i ever heard

    Say what you guys want about Eminem's music but you guys forget that Eminem in his prime could have been a model. I had hella Eminem posters in my room at my old house but the one above my bed on the ceiling was the shirtless one of him and he definitely had bulgy pec muscles from what I remember. Plus, he looks hella handsome for his age right now, and has the blonde hair blue eyes thing going on right now. Maybe his music is not as good, but who gets as passionate as Eminem's performances? He always gets hella hot and sweaty and gets those thick veins popping out on his neck. So passionate.

    bars and flow where on point but i aint feelin the beat

  • Dave from tha LBC

    Hip Hop started in the streets and it will forever be in the streets, the fact of the matter is. Nobody in the streets is listening to eminem, only kids from the burbs. I ain't feelin this track, i don't care how lyrical he is, it's fuckin wack in the streets. Only people in the urban community (not suburban ) should have say to what is dope hip hop and what isn't, this is NOTHING special. Kids from the suburbs tend to think just because a rapper is "lyrical" that makes them great! 2Pac , Too Short, Eazy E, and many many others weren't the most complex rappers but they are more legends, why? Because they kept it street. These underground, and lyrical cats can rhyme as many words out of the dictionary that they want and it is still wack in the streets why? Wack subject matter, wack beats, nobody wants to listen to any of that. People wake up, street hip hop (biggie, 2pac, big l , jeezy, dmx ) any rapper that reps the streets, YES even Waka will have more respect than these lyrical cats, because hip hop IS the streets, and if the streets aren't feelin it, than it doesn't matter how versatile you are, wack is wack no matter what and kids from the burbs need to stop givin this shit 5 stars!

  • AgustnG

    An up grande ver berzerk and survival. Really enjoying that encore flow. It was always underrated IMO. He just needs to lay down the electronic beat a little. It's enjoyable but mmlp was known for simple yet clever beats. Remember when Kill You was based on some jazz shit? That's the shit right there. As for the lyrics, I'm seeing some glimpses of slim shady. Columbus reference, check. Bill Clinton reference, check. Trashing fake artists, check. He just needs more heat on the album. Overall this is a great song with some ridiculous lyrics and flow, finally he has stopped screaming, somehow it sounds dopest when he is all calm and shit

    'Rap God' , at least this makes more sense than Kanye's 'God'

    • nigga

      Kanye did more to hip-hop musically than eminem ever did. Eminem bought white people over to hip-hop and branded 50 cents trash era of hip hop. Kanye is more consistent and has more classic albums. Eminem ain't be relevant till '04. Kanye influences what these kids wear, dress and listen to. It's just that white people look at eminem as a messiah.

    My 5 favorite rappers in this order are kendrick lamar, 2pac, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Meek Mill. so go fuck yourself.

  • Awesome

    My current projection is that MMLP2 could be a good album. Rap God sounds more like Encore than Recovery, which is a good thing. The song is awesome, and is the old Eminem. Eminem conveyed emotion well in TES/Encore/MMLP. In Recovery he yelled, thats it. Yelling does not equal emotion. Skill does. It was missing on Recovery. He seems to have it back with this song though.

    SSLP 8/10 MMLP 10/10 Classic TES 11/10 Classic. His best album. Encore 8/10 - Underrated so many classic songs, Like Toy Soldiers, We as Americans, Mosh, Yellow Brick Road, Spend Some Time. Some really bad songs though like Puke, My first single. Still very underrated. Relapse 6.5/10 - Lyrics are there but accent is wack.

    Shades of Old Eminem Sounds like his flow of the Encore Album, which is great, because that flow was one of his best. The yell flow on Recovery was god awful Finally substance in the lyrics. Haven't been any since Encore. Lyrics and Flow are bananas. The old Slim is back, at least for 1 song. Hope he keeps the Encore flow, and hope he brings more heat on the album. I'm still skeptical of the tracklist, but I'm more hopeful after this song.

    beat is trash but whiteboy spittin hard

    • hanes

      I bet if a black rapper chose the beat you wouldn't say it was trash. But you cant give the white guy too much credit right, bitch? The flow on this song is unmatchable. Accept it. A whiteboy owns hip hop. Aint it cool?

    • Crip4Life

      2PAC is considered the greatest of all time for a fucking reason. Em fans just face it lol. Almost every rapper (including Em) and person would say :2PAC is the greatest. Nobody had a bigger impact than 2PAC, 2PAC is the most influential. Em is even inspired by 2PAC. 2PAC IS THE GREATEST. AND YOU EM FANS NEED TO HOP OFF EMs dick lol. 2Pac even beat Em in a poll from ESPN. i love both Em and PAC. But even in everyones eyes, majority still say 2PAC is king. 2PAC is idolized lol

      To thx: That's all u heard in the song or someone just told u he said that? hit em up is one of the best diss tracks ever. Em is my favorite in the game right now but Tupac is the greatest of all time PERIOD !!!

    • thx

      Yea your right they are not in the same league em lyrically destroys pac in his deepest fucking sleep thats a fact everyone is scared to acknowledge just cuz of ems skin color. Your right about the feud stuff tho but pac was just simply a huge ego loud mouth at ANYONE. his disses are penmanship are mad average; thats why i fucked yo bitch u fat mothafucka dude kids fighting at a middle school cafeteria come up with better dis shit than that lol

    • 2pacfan

      . In all his lyrical battles he went after weak opponents (Benzino, Cannibus, Moby, Ja Rule, Everlast). Pac went against the entire east coast (in it's prime) against legendary artists. You know it's a faggot ass era when people place Eminem above Pac. They're not even in the same league. Gtfo out of here.

      this song is dope tho

      People don't hate when the song is actually good. Go check some of the hot songs and the comments. Some of us just arent stans, i am a fan and i can say it when i don't like a song. I don't try to like it just because i am a fan of the artist. When it sucks, it sucks. stop being such a cockrider

    @ Chris E remember I listed Monch as being a feature on his album loving Hip Hop, I think Budden & Em would stripe a magnificent rap album because they're both depressed, lol I'm serious though.

  • donnis mac

    Man listen...... Busta been doing this same style on trap like beats (like this is) and so has Twista, but you weirdos wanna make it like Em is the only lyrical emcee out there. Add the fact that he's bigging up old school rappers and we watch you morons call them washed up, irrelevant, and pay no attention to said rappers' music, just affirms what I've been saying for a LONG time. There is no having a discussion with you stans. This better than that "Berzerk" toxin, and is a great song on an album. Anticipating that Busta collaboration too. That is gonna be talked about so you little bitches better go study some Hip Hop history because that's gonna be the day we LIFERS sh*t on you nerd-boys.

    • awesome

      SSLP 8/10 MMLP 10/10 Classic TES 11/10 Classic. His best album. Encore 8/10 - Underrated so many classic songs, Like Toy Soldiers, We as Americans, Mosh, Yellow Brick Road, Spend Some Time. Some really bad songs though like Puke, My first single. Still very underrated. Relapse 6.5/10 - Lyrics are there but accent is wack. Big Step down from Encore Recovery 3/10 - Awful Yell Flow, no substance, pop. Garbage album. Huge Step Down from Relapse.

      For some reason you seem to think rappers are shit just because they're mainstream. Sure, I like many of the underground rappers that you do such as lowkey, diabolic, apathy, hopsin, canibus and so on... But liking those rappers doesn't mean that you also have to hate Kendrick and J.Cole, Jay-Z and Nas. They all have a huge amount of talent and you're just delusional to think otherwise. Living in your own dream world where you think you're too good to listen to mainstream, yet you're missing out on so much good music. Some of the ones you mentioned are shit though, I have to agree. such as drake, big sean, diddy... but that's besides the point

  • jujurightnow

    really this song is becoming incredible in the second part,... very impressive and interesting piece of music.

    most of these rappers aint REAL niggas. Word, Nas bankrupt never was a drug runner, Lil Wayne aint no blood, Jeezy aint no BMF, 50 going broke, Game a stripper, Em was gay. None of these niggas real you guys. If they was all real they all be dead now. Like it or not Ross is the new biggie. BAWSE!!!!

  • DearEminem

    Dear Eminem, You're dissing your own fans because they think you POP and your dicisions are wack. But lets look back on a interview you made once a long times ago to all these new STANS who thinks they know him better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2Zhzheps1c Ohh its funny, you're now the opposite of that wait a suprise... But 80% of your new fans werent even born when you made this so they don't know what we're talking about..

      can u please explain anything POP about this song maybe we are missing something

    • WHATADOUCHELORD

      Wow dude I wish we were all as cool as you.

    • DearEminem

      @JJ Idiot I was born in 83 so I'm sure I knew Eminem since the soul intent ep he brought with his homie. But you must be the type of guy who thinks he knows everybody online. Im sorry if I offended you lil stannies by speaking the truth, the truth alwats hurts. I got original cassettes of Eminem's bassemint productions and infinite when they came out etc. So I dont know what you really call new fan, but I listened to Eminem in the early 90s even before the Infinite and Slim Shady EP. Atleast I can look objective to my favourite artists unless like you being bitter because the great white hope fell off. Oh, and 2 let you know I don't listen to Wayne like ya'll mainstream faggots. I'm more down with people like: Immortal technque, Nas, RA The Rugged Man, Big Pun, Big L, Rakim, Slick Rick, Kool G Rap, Wu Tang Clan, and Eminem from 89-2004.

    • jj

      You probably weren't even old enough to know who Eminem was when this came out. Now go suck on waynes dick

      Ohh and let me guess, you were born and were 4 years old when this came out? Gtfo faggot. Your probably a new fan too.

    this would never be on mmlp1.. whole track isnt eminem-style. he went off lyrically but the whole vibe is just off, i mean wtf was that beat? cool that he mentioned monch, said fag/gay, talked bout pop criticism and said some fucked shit like the columbine line flow nice too, wigga aint screaming

  • Anonymous

    Haha and everyone was hating when the tracklist came out... Won't be hearin that now. This is one of the best songs he has released in years. The lyricism is so complex. He changes his flow so many times and keeps in sync with the beat. This is Eminem at his best. RIP Hip-Hop, Em killed you.

      rapping fast dont make you great

    • hyh

      Shut up stan, no one even said this track was good. The beat is actually wack as fuck and he still screams in some parts of the song. Only good part was a 4:25. This isn't even good enough to be a bonus track, let alone being on the album. And yes the tracklist and the features are wack as fuck.

  • tht

    I think he's becoming repetetive and lacking originality. You can see he's over real soon if he isn't already. There is no buzz around this album like there was with all his albums. This is going to be his worst in my opinion. Anyway the rest of the tracks better be dope as fuck. I'll just wait before bashing, but this i have a feeling it's going to be a huge dissapointment

  • tht

    This club beat is wack as fuck and ruined the whole song in my opinion. If this is the best of his album (Berzerk, Rap God and Survival) than this will probably be the worst album of his career. What a let down. And notice i didn't even mention The 3 pop features on his album which will probably be horse shit too. I'm actually a huge fan, but the more i hear of this album, the more i think this album will be a huge let down. EM is turning into a sheep, He lacks what used to make him original, he's pop now.

    • imho

      eminem just dissed this guy in his song LOL..the last verse was dumb fucks for u think he lost it or mainsteam(even tho recovery was)

    • gfg

      exactly, thats ridiculous

    • Anonymous

      and to think this album is going to be called Marshall Mathers LP 2

    • tht

      This is more like a club beat than a pop beat, but his flow is nice except when he yells. 4:25 and on is crazy. Song isn't that bad, but not as a single or a song to promote the album. It's still a little better than Berzerk and Survival though. But i still don't have much expectations for this album with all those pop features. Kendrick's song will probably be dope though.

    • bigpoppa

      if you call this pop im not quite sure what the f@ck is wrong with you...this is just pure raw lyricism at its best. im not sure what to expect from the album either, didnt like berserk or survial either...all i know is i am dying to hear that kendrick collab now...this has got me very excited.

  • ky

    His style is like that brief style he had during the production of relapse when he wasn't using accents e.g. forever, underground (and hints of recovery's style and his old style mixed in). It's not mmlp by any means but it's not as disappointing as I thought it would be and my hopes are a little higher. Kind of feels jumpy like he's going from one style to another constantly but I like it
