American rapper Eminem has released another track, Rap God, from his forthcoming album "The Marshall Mathers LP 2", which is due to be out in November.
The latest 6-minute long single is the ninth track from his highly-anticipated album, which will go up for sale on November 5.
Marshal Bruce Mathers, better known by his screen name, Eminem, was the first white rapper after the Beastie Boys to bring in high sales and earn respect in the hip-hop music industry. Eminem is among the renowned rap artists and is the best-selling artist of the 2000s. The rapper has released a number of albums since early 1990's and since then, there has been no looking back for the artist.
Eminem has achieved a number of music awards in his career, which also includes 13 Grammy Awards. The Slim Shady LP (Long Play) earned Eminem his first Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. 'The Marshall Mathers LP' and 'The Eminem Show' also won Best Rap Album Grammy Awards, which made Eminem the first artist to win Best Rap Album for three consecutive LPs.
In the latest track (Rap God), Eminem takes this opportunity to pay tribute to the rappers who inspired him during his music career. He also calls himself a "product of Rakim" as well as Tupac, N.W.A. and Lakim Shabazz. Halfway through the music track, Eminem also explains why he is so direct in the song, saying that he feels the need to write a few rhymes because "even you unsigned rappers are hungry, looking at me like it's lunchtime."
Eminem also says in one of the songs "I know there was one time when I was king of the underground." However, the line "Why be a king when you can be a god?" which comes at the end of the track has drawn huge interest as many listeners believe that Eminem is declaring himself to be the God of hip-hop music.
The track is available to download from iTunes for $0.69.
