    Third Eminem Video Breaks Billion-View Mark

    That’s not a bad rap. Eminem passed one more musical milestone yesterday as his 2013 hit “Rap God” became one of just 30 videos — and his third — to rack up more than 1 billion views on YouTube. It still lags behind Wiz Khalifa’s 2015 track “See You Again” for the most-viewed rap video with 4.4 billion plays. Overall, “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee leads the pack with a stunning 6.6 billion views.

    What else is special about “Rap God”? With a whopping 1,560 words, the song snagged a Guinness World Record for the most words in a hit single.
