Eminem’s Verse on DJ Khaled’s ‘USE THIS GOSPEL’ Goes Full K-LOVE

On Friday, DJ Khaled dropped GOD DID, a sprawling 18-track ode to a lot of things, including how great it is to be DJ Khaled and how thankful he is to God for the honor. Khaled has said that he’s a devout Muslim, and a lot of the tracks on here reflect a Gospel-tinged pivot a la Kanye’s recent move.

Speaking of Kanye, he shows up with Eminem for “USE THIS GOSPEL” remix, in which the two rappers spend 3 minutes and 43 seconds rapping about how their faith in God protects them and gives them hope. It has as much K-LOVE energy as any song could have, and it’s coming from the Real Slim Shady. “So my savior, I call on to rescue me from these depths of despair,” he raps. “So these demons better step like a stair necause He is my shepherd, I’m armed with Jesus, my weapon is prayer.” And then, later on: “Bible at my side like a rifle with a God-given gift / Every single day I thank God for, that’s why I pay so much homage praises to Jesus, I’ll always.”

And so on and so forth. Other than one use of the word “F’d” (and he literally says “eff’d”), this is fit for your next Sunday Service. Check it out below. You can play it around the kids! In front your Grandma! No headphones necessary!

Lest you doubt, here is Eminem’s verse in its entirety, via Rap Genius:

I’m holding on (Yeah) but I don’t know if I can take it much longer
Today’s the day that I put all of my trust and faith in You, Father
Please let this hate make me stronger
‘Fore they turn on me like a zombie
It’s like I’m being strangled unconscious (Yeah)
When temptation is almost like Satan is making you tryna
Take you away from your daughters
Danglin’ a bunch of painkillers on ya
Wavin’ ’em in your face and then watch ’em comin’ extra strength
And that’s why they make ’em in rectangular objects
‘Cause that’s the shape of a coffin
Though, it ain’t medication this time
But the devil’s egging me on
And I ain’t gonna let ’em break me ’cause I’m a soldier
You can bank on that promise like the Chamber of Commerce
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
Soon as I squeeze it, I’m blessed like sneezes
Call me Yeezus, I’m F’d in the head, maybe I’m bonkers
Regardless, never claimed to be flawless
Long as the mistakes I’ve acknowledged

Y’all wish I would say something positive
Well, okay, then I’m positive
They’d rather trade weather with Mayweather
‘Cause they would fare way better with them odds
Than they would exchanging some bars
Or trading any bars with Shady and probably is painfully obvious
To compare Godliness to an atheist
But I got them audiences raving (Woo) in amidst my squabbles
I got some awesome inspiration to drop ’em, off ’em
Pen and paper, I’m knockin’ ’em off
Woke up on stage at a concert
Whole place looking like a mosh pit
Bible at my side like a rifle with a God-given gift
Every single day I thank God for
That’s why I pay so much homage
Praises to Jesus, I’ll always

Yeah, that wasn’t on our bingo card for the year either, but no sense looking a gift horse in the mouth, as they say. The Real Slim Shady is standing up for Jesus. Shia LeBeouf is a Catholic. MIA got born again. Some interesting trends going on among the celebs these days.
