The official music video for Eminem’s song, “Rap God
,” has passed one billion views on YouTube. At 47-years old the rapper has hit a milestone more than six years after its initial release back in 2013.
The video appeared on “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” and took shots at rap peers including Tyler The Creator, Joe Budden, and Machine Gun Kelly. Eminem gave the video a push by sharing a short clip on his Instagram and Twitter pages last week along with the caption: “‘Everybody loves to root for a nuisance’ #RapGod countdown to 1 billion.”
“Rap God” is the third Eminem video to eclipse this benchmark. His track “Not Afraid” and “Love the Way You Lie
,” featuring Rihanna, have also surpassed 1 billion views on YouTube.
