Life is long and you just never know what sorts of twists and turns it will take.
For example, if the current you could have gone back to the you of 20 years ago to tell them that the Real Slim Shady had a future Christian hit in him, young you might have chalked the whole thing up to a delusion brought on by smoking too many clove cigarettes. But it’s 2022 and sure enough, Eminem is on top of Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart.
As you might remember, the song is “Use This Gospel (Remix),” which Em did with Kanye West and DJ Khaled on Khaled’s God Did album. When the song released, we noted that it was a track ready for K-LOVE, but even we did not anticipate that Eminem’s debut on the Hot Christian Singles would lead to this kind of dominance. Who knows what’ll happen next? There is a legit non-zero chance that Eminem comes out of all this with a Dove Award. That would put him in the mix to be the world’s first ever EGOD winner!
