How Eminem Devastates The Competition On 'Rap God'

October 21st, 2013 2:30pm EDT
In rap music in 2013, everyone seems to want to be the ‘Savior’.  Kanye West proclaimed himself to be a ‘god’ on the blatantly titled “I Am A God”, even foreshadowing beforehand on Yeezus at the end of “Black Skinhead”. A$AP Ferg even titled his debut Trap Lord.  Argue the difference between lord and god all you want, but they seem nearly, if not ‘one in the same’.  Jay-Z joined the boat as well on Magna Carta…Holy Grail.  Why is everyone trying to be God? I’m unsure, but there sure have been plenty of ‘gods’ this year.

A couple of years ago, it was fine to be merely a ‘king’ (P$C’s “I’m a...

"I'm beginning to feel like a Rap God, Rap God / All my people from the front to the back nod, back nod," is the simple hook, but in between Eminem lays down minutes-long verses. The song itself clocks in at 6 minutes.
