Eminem’s Classic ‘Rap God’ Hits 1 Billion YouTube Views

, ,

Eminem’s “Rap God” music video has officially hit the one billion-view benchmark on YouTube, marking yet another monumental milestone for the Detroit veteran’s catalog.

Eminem recently set up a special website www.rapgod.eminem.com armed with a timer to countdown the precious plays. After the Rich Lee-directed video hit its target a special message — “‘Rap God’ hit 1 billion views. Thank you” — appeared with instructions on how to relive the zany clip, which parodies 80s character Max Headroom. Rap God has also been certified platinum four times by the RIAA.

Remarkably enough, “Rap God” marks Eminem’s third video with over a billion views. As of now, 2010’s “Not Afraid” is sitting at 1.3 billion views and his Rihanna-featured “Love the Way You Lie” probably needs its own website for it’s just 100,000 views shy of hitting two billion.

It continues to prove to be a strong showing for Eminem this year as the milestone joins other accomplishments already achieved in 2020 as his Music To Be Murdered By surprise drop became his 10th consecutive No. 1 album. In addition, Eminem claimed a shot at redemption when he surprised everyone with a performance of his “Lose Yourself” at the Oscar’s this year to commemorate the track’s win for Best Orignal Song for 8 Mile in 2003.
