It’s been years since I’ve found Eminem musically interesting. His talent was never overlooked nor was the fact that I looked up to this guy throughout my teens, but his inability to release anything decent post-The Marshall Mathers LP (some stretch it to The Eminem Show, I don’t) was depressing. It didn’t matter though, this guy still sold more records than any other hip hop artist in the world. It kind of says a lot then that ‘Rap God’ is the first Em record we’ve deemed interesting enough to post up. And even then it’s still a way off from his best. It would appear however and at the very least that Slim Shady (sans ridiculous muppet voice) has once again reared his ugly peroxide stained head. ‘Rap God’, powered by the visceral hunger omitted from most of his recent releases sees Eminem spitting fire uninterrupted for 6 minutes across a harrowing, bass heavy beat. This is more like it Marshall.
