As a result of his most recent guest verse on a well-known gospel rap song included on DJ Khaled’s most recent album, the rapper Eminem has made his debut on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart.

Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers III, has a history of using his violent/irreverent rap lyrics to soar to the top of the mainstream charts. Some of his tracks even allude to wanting to kill his ex-wife or use narcotics heavily.

The gospel song, “Use This Gospel,” from West’s Jesus Is King album, was remixed by the critically renowned 49-year-old singer in collaboration with professed Muslim DJ Khaled. Dr. Dre produced the remix, which can be found on DJ Khaled’s latest studio album, God Did.

For the first time in Eminem’s nearly 30-year career, “Use This Gospel” by DJ Khaled with Kanye West & Eminem peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart last week. The song dropped to No. 5 this week as TobyMac’s “The Goodness” with Blessing Offor took the top spot on the chart.

West, who in recent years has professed to become a Christian, started the trend of secular rappers appearing on Billboard Christian charts with his 2019 album Jesus Is King.

The album debuted at the peak of the Top Christian Albums and Top Gospel Albums on its first week of release at the time.

In “Use This Gospel (Remix),” Eminem shares about the attacks of Satan and how God has been helping him.

“I’m holding on, but I don’t know if I can take it much longer/Today’s the day that I put all of my trust and faith in You, Father/Please let this hate make me stronger ‘fore they turn on me like a zombie/It’s like I’m being strangled unconscious/When temptation is almost like Satan is making you tryna take you away from your daughters/Danglin’ a bunch of painkillers on ya,” the Detroit-raised artist raps.

“So my Savior I call on to rescue me from these depths of despairs/So these demons better step because He is my shepherd/I’m armed with Jesus, my weapon is prayer/Soon as I squeeze it, I’m blessed like sneezes/Call me Yeezus, I’m F’d in the head, maybe I’m bonkers/Regardless, never claimed to be flawless/Long as the mistakes I’ve acknowledged.”

Over the years, Eminem has openly shared his struggles with mental health. In times past, his lyrics and dark imagery were the opposite of God-honoring.

Eminem concluded his verse in “Use This Gospel” by saying: “Bible at my side like a rifle with a God-given gift/Every single day I thank God for/That’s why I pay so much homage/Praises to Jesus, I’ll always.”

According to Rapzilla, the artist, who in the past called himself a “Rap God,” would pray before his shows in the early 2000s, and “Then he’d go on to rap some of the most profane hip-hop of all time.”

Of Eminem’s Christian Billboard debut, Rapzilla Editor-in-Chief Justin Sarachik wrote: “It was shocking to see Eminem on a gospel rap track.”

“[W]hat was even more surprising is that he didn’t say anything controversial or blasphemous,” Sarachik explained. “He just rapped about God.”
