“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come... So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."

The DVLP-produced track from Nov. 5th's MMLP2 album samples Slick Rick and features Mathers boasting of his superhuman powers, comparing himself to a computer and a god, declaring "I’m beginning to feel like a rap god, rap god / All my people from the front to the back nod, back nod," later adding, "Why be a king when you can be a god?"

Then he explains why he, Marshall Mathers, can't even save you from the menace to society Slim Shady and all those like him have become. And he convinces you that nobody can do anything about any of it. After all, Eminem is rap god...
