Rap God - Eminem
Speed: 74 bpm
The DJ's Take: If I were an African-American female, my reaction to this track would be short and sweet - 'eewwwww… he naaasty.' Very heavy; put Rap God on your soundtrack for when you become an MMA fighter or overlord of a vast medieval empire. First heard it with earbuds, now listening with big headphones, and that beat is seeping into my bones. Well-worth a download, whether you're putting it in a mix or need to rattle the wax out of your ears.
If you're going pop, keep it key-compatible and double-time with Applause. I Need A Doctor might be a nice little mashup partner at a slightly higher speed (or Forgot About Dre at a slightly slower speed).
