Eminem references the Clinton–Lewinsky scandal in order to demonstrate his longevity as a dominant force in the rap industry, thus establishing himself as an “immortal god”.

In the verse that begins at 4:26, Eminem raps 101 words in 16.45 seconds — an average of 6.14 words per second — which he describes as “supersonic speed”:

Uh, summa lumma dooma lumma you assuming I’m a human
What I gotta do to get it through to you I’m superhuman
Innovative and I’m made of rubber
So that anything you say is ricocheting off of me and it’ll glue to you and
I’m devastating, more than ever demonstrating
How to give a motherfuckin’ audience a feeling like it’s levitating
Never fading, and I know the haters are forever waiting
For the day that they can say I fell off, they’ll be celebrating
‘Cause I know the way to get ’em motivated
I make elevating music, you make elevator music…— Eminem, “Rap God”

The song’s production was handled by American hip hop producer Bigram Zayas, professionally known as Develop or DVLP; he has produced songs for rappers such as the Diplomats, Rick Ross and most notably Lil Wayne. The song was co-produced with Matthew “Filthy” Delgiorno. The song’s recording session took place at Effigy Studios in Michigan, with brothers Mike and Joe Strange working with Eminem on mixing and engineering the record. Joe Strange also contributed additional keyboarding and programming. On October 14, 2013, DVLP tweeted that the beat was two years old, made in November 2011, and that Eminem recorded the song in 2012. The song entered the 2015 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records in which Eminem is commended for the most words in a hit single, “Rap God”, totalling 1,560 words in 6 minutes, 3 seconds.

On November 21, 2013, Eminem tweeted the trailer for the music video, directed by Rich Lee, and announced it would be released on November 27, 2013. On November 27, 2013, as scheduled, the music video was released on Vevo at 12:00pm ET. Eminem parodied Max Headroom in the music video.

On February 15,2020, the video reached 1 billion views, making it his third video to reach this milestone.

The song debuted at number five on the UK Singles Chart and at number one on the UK R&B Chart, despite its late release. It replaced “Berzerk”, his first single from the album at that position. In the United States, it debuted at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Since its release, the song has been certified 3x Platinum by the RIAA. and has sold 1,896,000 copies in United States as of September 2017.

The lyrics of “Rap God” were criticized as homophobic, with lyrics such as “you fags think it’s all a game” and “Little gay-looking boy / So gay I can barely say it with a straight face-looking boy.” In a Rolling Stone interview, Eminem defended his usage of “faggot” and “us[ing] ‘gay-looking’ as an insult” by saying he “never really equated those words to actually mean ‘homosexual'”.

In January 2015, TMZ reported that Chicago-based hip hop trio Hotstylz were suing Eminem and Shady Records for the amount of $8 million, for using a 25-second sample mid-track from their song “Lookin’ Boy”, without their permission. In February 2016, the lawsuit between Raymond Jones of Hot Stylz and Eminem was tossed out of court after the judge heard the agreement both parties made.

In September 2015, a 15-year-old boy in Fresno, California was arrested for making terrorist threats by sharing on Instagram the Columbine-related lyrics to “I’m Back”. The police thought that he had taken the lyrics to “Rap God” and added his own material on the end, as the latter interpolates some lyrics of the former. – Wikipedia

Some Quotable Lyrics

Look, I was gonna go easy on you not to hurt your feelings
But I’m only going to get this one chance
(Six minutes, six minutes)
Something’s wrong, I can feel it
(Six minutes, six minutes, Slim Shady, you’re on)
Just a feeling I’ve got
Like something’s about to happen
But I don’t know what
If that means, what I think it means, we’re in trouble
Big trouble. And if he is as bananas as you say
I’m not taking any chances
You are just what the doc ordered

I’m beginning to feel like a Rap God, Rap God
All my people from the front to the back nod, back nod
Now who thinks their arms are long enough to slap box, slap box?
They said I rap like a robot, so call me rap-bot
