Eminem has released his latest single "Rap God" from his upcoming album "Marshall Mathers LP 2", which is slated for a November 5 release.
The first single "Berzerk" has already attained Platinum status after selling more than 1 million copies, according to several news reports.
In "Rap God", Eminem goes on about how he feels like a rap deity and describes himself as a product of rapstars like Rakim and Tupac, N.W.A. and Lakim Shabazz. The song mentions Monica Lewinsky, Marvel Comics, Ray J and superhero Thor too, reports Rolling Stone.
The chorus goes:
"I'm beginning to feel like a rap god (rap god)/ All the people from the front to the back, nod (back nod)."
MTV writes about the song:
"Rap God" is strikingly different from previous MMLP2 releases "Berzerk" and "Survival," as it seems that Marshall's focus on this one is simply to have the most expertly laid verses, adding yet another wrinkle to his November 5 album.
Driven by a piano sample and a siren-sounding synth, Eminem is relentless on "Rap God" in his attempt to assert the claim in the title.

This is the third single released from Eminem's forthcoming album. While "Berzerk" went on sale in August, "Survival" released at iTunes earlier in October. Check out both the tracks here.
"Bezerk" has already sold more than 1.1 million copies since its release and has sold 1,15,000 this week alone, reports HotNewHipHop.com.
