Eminem and his record label Interscope are reportedly being sued over the 2013 hit song “Rap God,” the third single from the 42-year-old rapper’s eighth studio album “The Marshall Mathers LP 2.” A rapper from Chicago, Raymond Jones, is seeking $8 million over the song.

Jones goes by the name Raydio G and he is a member of the Yung Joc-affiliated rap trio called Hot Stylz. He is reportedly claiming that Eminem featured a 25-second sample mid-track from his 2007 song “Lookin’ Boy” without asking for permission.

Other references included in the “Rap God” lyrics are the Columbine High School massacre, the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal, the late Tupac Shakur, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, “The Walking Dead” and planking among others.

On the other hand, Eminem said in an interview with MTV News that it only took him about six minutes to write the lyrics of the hit song “Rap God,” which has a total of 1,560 words making it the single with the most words in the Guinness World Records.

The “Rap God” music video was posted on YouTube on Nov. 27, 2013 and has since been viewed more than 178 million times with around 1.5 million thumbs up. Watch the video here:
