If you ever need proof of Eminem’s talent, you need only ask Dr Dre.
The veteran rapper hyped up his friend and long-term collaborator by sharing an incredible video of Shady rapping at an insane speed.
Uploading the video to social media, the producer then asked who would be able to take on the self-entitled ‘Rap God’ and we can hardly disagree.
Check out the clip below:
For those of you who’ve yet to see the video, take a beat and watch as Eminem performs his track ‘Godzilla’ (seriously).
Given how quickly he rattles off the lyrics and the fact that they’ve worked together since 1998, it’s not surprising that Dr Dre felt the need to share the epic clip on Instagram.
He captioned the video: “Marshall Mathers vs Who???!!” with the clip showing Eminem rap the lyrics from the hit-single which first appeared in the ‘Music to Be Murdered By’ album.
In under 30 seconds, Slim Shady managed to get quite a mouthful in.
Standing in front of some retro arcade games, he rapped: “Fill ’em with the venom, and eliminate ’em. Other words, I Minute Maid ’em. I don’t want to hurt ’em, but I did ’em in a fit of rage.

“I’m murdering again, nobody will evade him. I’m finna kill ’em and dump all the f***ing bodies in a lake. Obliterating everything, incinerating and renegade ’em.
“And I make anybody who want it with the pen afraid. But don’t nobody want it but they’re gonna get it anyway. ‘Cause I’m beginning to feel like I’m mentally ill. I’m Atilla, kill or be killed, I’m a killer, be the vanilla gorilla. You’re bringing the killer within me, out of me.”
He went on, waggling his finger to the camera: “You don’t want to be the enemy of the demon. Who went in me, and be on the receiving of me, what stupidity, it’d be.
“Every bit of me is the epitome of a spitter. When I’m in the vicinity, motherf***er, you better duck. Or you finna be dead the minute you run into me.
“A hundred percent of you is a fifth of a percent of me. I’m ’bout to f***ing finish you b****, I’m unfadable. You wanna battle, I’m available, I’m blowing up like an inflatable. I’m undebatable, I’m unavoidable, I’m unevadable.”

After the video went viral, thousands of fans shared their reaction in the comments.
One Instagram user praised: “Dre! Thank you so much for giving us Em!”
“You discovered him, and thanks for doing so,” echoed a second.
“We’re all gonna have an aneurysm trying to process this speed,” another joked.
A fourth wrote that the ‘Mockingbird’ rapper ‘can never be touched’, while a fifth dubbed him a ‘legend’.
“He is the man,” wrote a final Instagram user.
