Eminem surprised many when he appeared on DJ Khaled’s new album, “God Did.”
The “Use This Gospel” remix featuring Kanye West and the “Rap God” artist, also known as Marshall Mathers, debuted on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs at No. 1.
The song was originally on Kanye’s “Jesus Is King” album that was released in 2019.
Rapzilla editor-in-chief Justin Sarachik said he was shocked about Eminem’s appearance.
“It was shocking to see Eminem on a gospel rap track. What was even more surprising is that he didn’t say anything controversial or blasphemous. He just rapped about God,” Sarachik said.
Here are a few lines from Eminem’s rap about Jesus:
So my savior, I call on to rescue me from these depths of despair
So these demons better step like a stair, because He is my shepherd
I’m armed with Jesus, my weapon is prayer
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

Khaled told Apple Radio’s Zane Lowe about how it all went down, beginning three years ago.
I wouldn’t throw Eminem into the Christian rapper category just yet, but I would pray for him.
Much like the Apostle Paul, Marshall could have a radical conversion to following Christ.
