Legendary rapper The D.O.C. has recently shared a video of him reacting to Eminem’s verse on Kanye West’s “Use This Gospel” remix, which was released by DJ Khaled through his “God Did” album.
In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Khaled revealed how the remix ended up on his album. He stated that West had played him Jesus Is King Part II in full a year and a half prior, calling it “incredible”. Even though West and Khaled had recorded a couple of tracks for God Did, they were never finished due to the rapper’s busy schedule. As part of a “last minute magic gift”, Khaled asked West if he could include the remix on “God Did” since it perfectly fit the album’s theme. According to Khaled, West loved the idea, which he joked “You know Ye don’t love no idea”. Before confirming the inclusion, West insisted on contacting both Dr. Dre and Eminem for their approval which he received shortly after.
The song was commercially successful too. It peaked at No. 49 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The remix further reached the top position on both the US Christian Songs and Gospel Songs charts, becoming the first number-one on these charts for both Khaled and Eminem. It also marked the first entry for both artists and West’s fifth chart-topper on the two charts.
In the video which recently surfaced online, The D.O.C. says: “I think Eminem is one of the greatest. No question about it bro. Em is off my tree. You know, every one of us come from somebody. I can hear me in him. He’s a true f**king artist.”
Under the video, Vanilla Ice, who has got a long history with Eminem, commented the fire emojis under The D.O.C.’s video. Check the video below:
