Award-winning artist Eminem has praised Jesus in his new song, sparking a social media discussion about his personal faith.
The new song 'Use This Gospel' hears him praising Jesus, touting scripture and denouncing satan.
The single - in collaboration with Christian rapper Ye (Kanye West) - is a new track on D.J. Khaled's new album 'God Did.'
The original song was included on Ye's 2019 album 'Jesus Is King.'
Eminem raps about his relationship with God, saying: "I'm holding on but I don't know if I can take it much longer; today's the day that I put all of my trust and faith in you, Father."
He also says: "So my saviour, 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."
Many were suprised to hear Eminem talking about having a Christian faith.
Hip-Hop artist Derek Minor tweeted "Kanye and Eminem making Christian raps on a DJ Khaled album is not something I would have ever seen coming but I'm here for it. It's a blessing to see positivity. Especially in these times."
The song also caught the attention of faith-based writer DeWayne Hamby, who noted at Patheos that Eminem, a gritty artist, "might seem like an unlikely person to sing the praises of Jesus Christ" but that the rapper previously referenced faith in a 1996 song. The headline asked: "Is Eminem a Christian?"
