Eminem Raps at Light Speed in Virtual Reality for New Rap God Video

Posted on November 28, 2013

Kanye West may be a tad unhappy with Eminem's hot single "Rap God." Because Marshall Mathers pretty much cements his rep as the best lyricist and rapper around with this one.

Eminem discusses how he has fused rap, rock and pop and is beyond them. Take a look:
