20 Of The Most Arrogant Song Titles In Hip-Hop


This week, Eminem released a new track called “Rap God.” Sure, the song is hot – Eminem does his thing throwing around his usual Slim Shady bars – but that title. “Rap God” is pretty arrogant, no? Then again, that’s what hip-hop is built upon – talking one’s self up so much to the point where no one can question you (when they do it’s called “beef”). We can argue all day if that level of braggadocio is really needed, but with rappers getting their conceited on in their music, once it reaches the song title it’s almost like a bigger declaration. The song title is the Billboard revealing the ultimate “I’m The Shit” message. We’ve compiled 20 of those titles that reflect an excessive level of arrogance. Concede to the conceit.—KI

    In the bible I forgot which verse but it says “You are all gods; Sons of the most high.” Pretty sure that was what I Am A God was supposed to mean considering he has 21 grammys.

    So Dr, Dre isn’t a king in the rap game because he hasn’t dropped Detox. You must have forgot about Dre.

    With ‘Rap God’ Eminem has fun with the concept. Even when Eminem is bragging he tempers it with enough self-deprecation or wit that we know he’s not being a blow hard or egomaniacal. Most other rappers get corny with how highly they think of themselves.
