Fusing rap and metalcore has become something of a phenomenon over the last few years. MGK has been featured on Sleeping With Sirens‘ tracks, Ronnie Radke makes cameos in B. Lay‘s songs, and Punk Goes Crunk was strangely an entire album. Now, the metalcore outfit The Animal In Me has taken on turning Eminem‘s iconic comeback track “Rap God” into a djent-filled epic.
I’m not going to lie, when I saw that this band, known and lauded for their fantastic covers, was planning on attempting to cover “Rap God” I was extremely skeptical. However, after the first 30 seconds, I was sold. Check out the video below and let us know what you think of this unique spin on Eminem’s infamous “tongue-in-cheek fuck you.”
