Eminem has released "Rap God" his latest single from his upcoming album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, and it's a doozy:
Clocking in at over 6 minutes, there's a lot going on. It's got the dirty humor you'd expect from Eminem, with references to sex, violence, drugs, and lots of inner conflict. You'd have to think that the God reference is conscious of the recent Kanye West song "I Am A God" which raised a lot of controversy earlier this year.
As with so much music, it requires multiple listens before it can begin to be fully understood. Listen through and let us know what you think in the comments.
