We all know you should take everything found on Wikipedia with a ballroom full of saltshakers filled with salt. However, there is still some information on the site that makes you scratch your head in awe at times. For example, the entry for Eminem’s new single, “Rap God,” states that at the 4:20 point of the song, Eminem raps 97 words in 15 seconds, which works out to an average of 6.5 words per second. He describes this feat as supersonic speed. (No, I didn’t do the math. I don’t need to mix mathematics and science with my music to truly appreciate it). Even so, that Eminem is sure a musical fast talker.
Ah, but is he 'a god?' Well, he’s probably more of a god than Kanye West is Jesus. He raps here like somebody that was mainlining energy drinks the night before entering the studio. Yes, he’s amazingly good at what he does, but it can sometimes be like listening to an auctioneer for over six minutes straight. Unless you're bidding on a milk cow, an auctioneer is nothing but a noise merchant. Therefore, “Rap God” is impressive, but not really entertaining.
