Eminem once spit 480 words in just 83 seconds in another rapper's song

Everyone has struggled to get their words out at some point – apart from Eminem apparently.
In fact, the self-appointed ‘Rap God’ once spit over 480 words in a staggering 83 seconds on a track for Tech N9ne.
Pretty impressive stuff - but we wouldn't expect anything less from him.
Despite this incredible achievement, however, Eminem once admitted that he wasn’t sure 'how much longer [he had] in [the] game'.
In an interview with VIBE in 2010, the then-37-year thought that even if he was still making music at 50-years-old, he wasn't sure if he'd 'put it out'.
He explained: “I’m always going to love hip-hop. But how much longer am I going to still do it? I couldn’t really give you an answer. But the day that this is not better than the last will probably be the day I stop.”
In 2022, the 'Lose It' rapper performed a career milestone by performing at the Superbowl Halftime Show, along with other hip-hop legends like Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
And despite having 15 Grammys under his belt, the rapper was still concerned about whether his music at that stage would have longevity.
"I do love it so much. But even if I was rapping at 50 [years old], I don’t know if I would put it out. I know it always makes me feel better to lay things to tape, and—'Lay the tape.,” he added, "See, I’m old school. The fans might say the s*** is garbage. "You don’t how long people are going to want you around...” the rapper said.
He joked: "Realistically, if I don’t rap, what the f*** am I going to do? It’s too late to just be unfamous right now at this point."
But clearly, his talent hasn’t diminished over the years as he rapped 480 words in a mind-blowing 83 seconds.
The now-50-year-old achieved the amazing feat on Tech N9ne’s ‘Speedom’, with the latter revealing that the song was ‘ten years in the making’.
Though the pair had collaborated before, Eminem felt inspired to rap on the track after hearing the epic verse.
“I sent him the right one,” joked Tech N9ne, revealing to Vlad TV how the song came about.
He recalled: “Me and Krizz Kaliko sent him our verses, he loved our verses so much that it pushed him to do the most killer verse.”
“So killer, that he had mentioned to mention it on his song with Beyonce…” he added, “…he murdered.”
Guess, Eminem is glad he didn’t take his 'Curtain Call' after all.
