("Rap God" by Eminem)


I was gonna go easy on you

And not to hurt your feelings

But I'm only going to get this one chance

Six minutes

Something's wrong, I can feel it

Six minutes, Slim Shady, you're on

Just a feeling I've got

Like something's about to happen

But I don't know what

If that means what I think it means

We're in trouble, big trouble

And if he is as bananas as you say

I'm not taking any chances

You were just what the doc ordered

I'm beginnin' to feel like a Rap God, Rap God

All my people from the front to the back nod, back nod

Now who thinks their arms are long enough

To slap box, slap box? ♪

They said I rap like a robot, so call me Rapbot

But for me to rap like a computer must be in my genes

I got a laptop in my back pocket

My pen'll go off when I half-cock it

Got a fat knot from that rap profit

Made a living and a killing off it

Ever since Bill Clinton was still in office

With Monica Lewinsky feeling on his nut-sack

I'm an MC still as honest

But as rude and indecent as all hell syllables


Kill 'em all with

This slickety, gibbedy, hibbedy hip hop

You don't really wanna get into a pissing match

With this rappidy brat

Packing a Mac in the back of the Ac

Backpack rap crap, yap-yap, yackety-yac

And at the exact same time, I attempt these

Lyrical acrobat stunts while I'm practicin' that

I'll still be able to break a motherfuckin' table

Over the back of a couple of faggots

And crack it in half

Only realized it was ironic, I was signed to

Aftermath after the fact

How could I not blow? ♪

All I do is drop F-bombs, feel my wrath of attack

Rappers are havin' a rough time period, here's a maxipad

Ain't that hard, that hard

Everybody wants the key and the secret

Did nothing but shoot for the moon since

They got Slim inspired enough to one day grow up

Blow up and be in a position

To meet Run-DMC and induct them into the

Motherfuckin' Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Even though I'll walk in the church

And burst in a ball of flames

Only Hall of Fame I'll be inducted in

Poodle, I'm a doberman

Pinch yourself in the arm and pay homage, pupil

It's me, my honesty's brutal

But it's honestly futile

If I don't utilize what I do though

For good at least once in a while

So I wanna make sure somewhere in this

Chicken scratch I scribble and doodle enough rhymes to

Maybe to try to help get some people through tough times

But I gotta keep a few punchlines just in case

♪ 'Cause even you unsigned

Rappers are hungry lookin' at me like it's lunchtime

I know there was a time where once I

Was king of the underground

But I still rap like I'm on my Pharoahe Monch grind

So I crunch rhymes, but sometimes when you combine

Appeal with the skin color of mine

You get too big and here they come tryin' to

Censor you like that one line

Tried to say I'll take seven kids from Columbine

See if I get away with it

Now that I ain't as big as I was, but I'm

Morphin' into an immortal, comin' through the portal

You're stuck in a time warp from 2004 though

And I don't know what the fuck that you rhyme for

You're pointless as Rapunzel with fuckin' cornrows

You write normal? Fuck being normal

And I just bought a new raygun from the future

Just to come and shoot ya

But in my head there's something

I can feel tugging and struggling

Angels fight with devils and
