[Verse 3]

from Eminem – Rap God Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Many consider the highlight of this verse to be Em’s rapid-fire delivery in the middle of the verse (beginning with “Uh, sama lamaa duma lamaa” and ending with “I make elevating music”).

In this segment of verse 3 Eminem spits approximately 96 words in 14 seconds!

THAT’S 10.6 SYLLABLES-PER-SECOND

Now, granted, this is nothing compared to Chicago rapper Rebel XD’s incredible 852 syllables in 42.2 seconds (over 20 syllables per second), who is renowned for being arguably the fastest Western-language-speaking rapper of all time.

BUT Eminem’s speed here is still much faster than the vast majority of rappers are able to go. In fact, Em raps almost as fast as one-time-world-record-holder Twista’s 10.8 syllables-per-second!
