Ill when I speak in tongues

from Eminem – Rap God Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Speaking in tongues (in practical terms) means rapid vocalizing without making any actual comprehensible meaning. It usually happens within the context of religious meetings.

In the Bible, it first happened at Pentecost, when the disciples found themselves able to speak in every tongue on Earth in order to convert people to Christianity.

Em, as it turns out, is no stranger to speaking in tongues.

Speaking in tongues, I’ve never spoke this speech before
Hhem-delle-la, ennich-me-noughh-mi-niche-mick-norrf
