Eminem is known for some pretty big songs, ‘Lose Yourself’ springs to mind, as does ‘Without Me’ and his collaboration with Rhianna for ‘Love The Way You Lie’ to name a few. With an impressive fan following, he is renowned for his speedy yet witty rapping abilities. But do you know how good he is in numbers? The stuff of urban legend, there was always that one person in your university halls who believed that being able to rap Eminem’s ‘Rap God’ was a personality trait, a party trick that would be brought to life at each event over the course of the following three years. And somehow, people never seem to tire of this impressive feat. The 2013 hit, ‘Rap God’, saw Eminem rap 97 word in no less than 15 seconds, equating to 6.46 words per second. This however would later appear to be a modest achievement compared to his later work. Half a decade later, Eminem broke his own record in 2018 as a guest on Nicki Minaj’s ‘Majesty’ with a mouthful of 78 words in 12 seconds, 6.5 words per second.
