How many verses I gotta murder to
Prove that if you were half as nice
Your songs you could sacrifice virgins too?

from Eminem – Rap God Lyrics on Rap Genius


In times past, people would sacrifice virgins to gods to appease their anger or to worship them; hence, talking to his competition, the verse points out that if other rappers had even a fraction of his talent, they too could be considered Rap Gods and have virgins sacrificed to them.

Also, an oxymoron is created by using “nice” in the place of dope, which completely contradicts the act of sacrificing humans, which…isn’t very nice to say the least.– their own songs, maybe they would be better.
