Famous rapper Eminem has set a new Guinness World Record. The star has broken the previous record when it comes to the number of words contained by a single song. The Detroit rapper’s song includes 1,560 words.
Well, if you thought that breaking the Guinness Book of World Records mark for most words included in a single song is hard, you should think again. For Eminem this has actually been very simple. The legendary rapper has included on his latest album a song that will enter the Guinness Book. This hit single features no less than 1,560 words. The single, Rap God, lasts 6 minutes and 4 seconds. It is featured on The Marshall Mathers LP 2 album.
Well, if Eminem thought about breaking the record or not when he wrote the song is still unknown. However, his Rap God managed to enter history. And the song already is much debated. While some love it, others criticize the latest masterpiece of Eminem. For example, Boy George has been quite critical about the new hit.
“I don’t know how to say this without saying it how I’ve said it a million times,” Eminem claimed about the new song in an interview with Rolling Stone. “But that word, those kind of words, when I came up battle-rappin’ or whatever, I never really equated those words [to mean homosexual]…It was more like calling someone a bitch or a punk or asshole,” the rapper explained.
“Not saying it’s wrong or it’s right, but at this point in my career – man, I say so much shit that’s tongue-in-cheek,” the star added, saying that “I poke fun at other people, myself. But the real me sitting here right now talking to you has no issues with gay, straight, transgender, at all. I’m glad we live in a time where it’s really starting to feel like people can live their lives and express themselves.” “And I don’t know how else to say this, I still look at myself the same way that I did when I was battling and broke,” Eminem concluded.
Well, the famous singer surely has a successful career, one he worked very hard to achieve. So, congrats are in order for Eminem and his new Guinness World Record.
