Jones purports that 'Rap God' features 25 seconds of 'Lookin' Boy' in the middle section of the track. 
'Rap God' featured on Eminem's 2013 album The Marshall Mathers LP 2, reaching number seven in the US and number five in the UK.
In September, the track entered the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most words in a hit single (1,560). 
Meanwhile Eminem has been nominated for three Grammy Awards in the Rap category, including Best Album, Best Performance and Best Collaboration.
