Texas In July drummer Adam Gray has unveiled his drum cover of the Eminem track "Rap God." Gray calls the effort an "improvised playthrough," adding that he is "intentionally mimicking the lyrics on the drums." You can see what he came up with below. I'm certainly not an expert on drummers covering rap songs, but it seems like an admirable effort.

He really looks like he's going through a tough illness.
