Eminem’s new praise song garnered suspicions and, at the same time, approval from people as his lyrics contained praises towards Jesus. As a result, his praise song topped the Billboard Hot Christian Songs for the first time.
Eminem’s New Praise Song
Marshall Mathers, better known as Eminem, was featured in DJ Khaled’s new album. He teamed up with Khaled and Kanye West for a remix song, “Use this Gospel.” The song was originally from Kanye’s album, Jesus is King.
For almost 30 years in the music industry, Eminem has been known to rap about violence and profanity. That’s why when he rapped about surrendering to God and praising the name of Jesus, it came out as a surprise to everyone.
One of his lines went, “So, my savior, I call on to rescue me from these depths of despair. So, these demons better step like a stair because He is my shepherd. I’m armed with Jesus, my weapon is prayer.”
Then, he ended his verse by giving praise to Jesus. “Bible at my side like a rifle with a God-given gift. Every single day I thank God for it. That’s why I pay so much homage. Praises to Jesus, I’ll always.”
His God-centered raps made his debut on a Christian Billboard and even placed in the number one spot.
The Editor-in-Chief of RapzillaJustin Sarachik, commented about Eminem’s turnabout. He said, “It was shocking to see Eminem on a gospel rap track. What was even more surprising is that he didn’t say anything controversial or blasphemous. He just rapped about God.”
There have been discussions today about Eminem’s personal faith as he has not yet commented about this. But, it is indeed clear that the “Rap God” gave honor to the One True God, and he recognized Jesus as his Shepherd.
Let us continue to pray for Eminem’s continual encounter with the Lord Jesus.
