New Lyfe's Review on Eminem's Rap God Track
Posted on 28 October 2013
Simply put, this track is mind blowing. If you have yet to hear it, please take a listen below.
We get the feeling that Em was using this track to flex his muscles, and reach out to all of those who may have said he has fallen off.
The song starts with a quick blurb... "look... I was going to go easy on you not to hurt your feelings. But I'm only going to get one chance." In the background we can hear the familiar voice of the Slim Shady alter ego chiming in. Once Em starts rhyming, the following is a 6 minute assault on, well.... everyone.
Many people may call this an exaggerated statement, but this track may be one of the greatest accomplishments in all of rap. In my opinion, this track instantly solidified Eminem as the best rapper alive, and possibly the best rapper of all time. The track constantly changes flow while keeping its continuity. Even the flow of Eminem himself changes 5 or six times. He goes from wicked humor, to hard attack rhymes, to punchy and deliberate, all the way to speed rap with unimaginable articulation.
To put it simply, there is no one on this planet, other than Eminem that can combine so many elements into one song. All the while keeping his flow and direction in tact.
Eminem drops this entire next verse in just 15 seconds. Really, he's just showing off.
Uh, sama lamaa duma lamaa you assuming I'm a human
What I gotta do to get it through to you I'm superhuman Innovative and I'm made of rubber
So that anything you say is ricocheting off of me and it'll glue to you
I'm devastating, more than ever demonstrating
How to give a motherfuckin' audience a feeling like it's levitating
Never fading, and I know the haters are forever waiting
For the day that they can say I fell off, they'd be celebrating
Cause I know the way to get 'em motivated I make elevating music, you make elevator music
When asked about the Marshal Mathers LP 2 Album, Eminem said this to Rolling Stone.
"Right now, I'm probably working harder than I've ever worked in my life," says a sleep-deprived Eminem, gulping diet Red Bull in his suburban Detroit studio. He's well past deadline ("They keep telling me a different day," he says) on his new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 - out November 5th - and the final mixes still aren't quite done. "Aside from around the time of The Eminem Show, when I was also doing the 8 Mile movie and soundtrack and score and sh*t like that. This is probably the equivalent of that, but all focused on the record." (Rolling Stone)
Naturally, Eminem is already getting backlash for some of his lyrical content, but that is not anything new. Most of us in the hip hop community are just glad to see Eminem bringing is A game. I feel as if this is just a message to the entire world. Eminem is saying "I am the best. If you don't believe me, watch this."
