EMINEM - Phenomenal

This song is from the movie Southpaw(2015), released on Jun 02, 2015 starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker.
I enjoyed Eminem's attitude in this song. The production was interesting, especially that bridge. The lyrics were interesting, although it wasn't as phenomenal as I expected it to be. The hooks were nice, the rhythm had a solid feel to it, the dirt and grit in the production added that raw feel to the track.

[INTRO]
[HOOK]
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
With every ounce of my blood
C#m
With every breath in my lungs
C#m
Won't stop until I'm phe-no-menal
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
However long that it takes
C#m
I'll go to whatever rates
C#m
It's gonna make me a monster though
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
But I would never say, 'Oh, it's impossible'
C#m                     A   B
Cause I'm gonna be phenomenal

[VERSE]
C#m
Unstoppable, unpoppable thought bubbles
C#m
Untoppable thoughts, fuckin' juggernaut that'll
C#m
Stomp you in the verse, obstacles I'm drawn to 'em
C#m
When the going got rough
C#m
Show 'em what I done thought that was the worse, little sissy
C#m
Who the fuck taught you how to persevere?
C#m
There ain't no situation that you ever had to respond to that's adverse
C#m
The messiest thing you've ever gone through is your purse
C#m
Yeah, I don't try like Captain, I might as well
C#m
Hang it up like a shelf, gotta keep growin' with it, evolve
C#m
Cause you can keep throwin' shit at the wall
C#m
But you're gonna find that nothing's gonna stick until you apply yourself
C#m
Time to slip in that zone till' I find myself
C#m
Inside the realm where the unknown and boldly go
C#m
In the waters where nobody else has gone before
C#m
Or willing to go, uncharted, feeling is so
C#m
Bomb, I'm feelin' myself, I'm a giant
C#m
Sometimes I gotta remind myself that I am...

[HOOK]
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
With every ounce of my blood
C#m
With every breath in my lungs
C#m
Won't stop until I'm phe-no-menal
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
However long that it takes
C#m
I'll go to whatever rates
C#m
It's gonna make me a monster though
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
But I would never say, 'Oh, it's impossible'
                         A  B
Cause I'm gonna be phenomenal

[VERSE]
C#m
Let me self-empower you
C#m
When you're down and they're tryin' to clown the fuck out of you
C#m
When you feel like you're runnin' out of fuel
C#m
I'll show you how to use doubt as fuel
C#m
Convert it to gunpowder too
C#m
Now what you do is put the match to the charcoal fluid
C#m
Put a spark to it like Martha Stewart barbecuing
C#m
Ah screw it, feel like you want to hit that wall then do it
C#m
Punch through it, just cock back, put your all into it
C#m
Now you gon' take that rage and make that what you raise
C#m
Never take back what you say
C#m
If you stay trapped in your brain, engage in this fueled cage match
C#m
Ready to scrap asap
C#m
Take your fists to his bones
C#m
Show Biggie who's smallest you're Christopher Wallace
C#m
Yeah I picture 'em all as plastic and foam
C#m
Lays flat, where you put your dinner plates at
C#m
And set it off like a placemat
C#m
(I am phenomenal)
C#m
And I want you to say that

[HOOK]
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
With every ounce of my blood
C#m
With every breath in my lungs
C#m
Won't stop until I'm phe-no-menal
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
However long that it takes
C#m
I'll go to whatever rates
C#m
It's gonna make me a monster though
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
But I would never say, 'Oh, it's impossible'
                         A  B
Cause I'm gonna be phenomenal

[BRIDGE]
C#m
Said I need you to make a note
C#m                        A         B
And find yourself, your glory, free your person

[VERSE]
C#m
Is that a fuckin' mouth with no shut-up valve?
C#m
Can't even cut the power to it, when it's what allowed
             A
Me to come up out from under the fuckin' ground
A
Cause I worked my butt off now
A
It's a subject I don't know how to shut up about
       B
Cause I stuck it out
B
Like a mothafuckin' tongue to tie, I responded when I got shoved around
C#m
You're gonna have down believers
C#m
But when you're beyond belief, you probably shouldn't wonder how
C#m
Get it how you live
C#m
But are you prepared to give more than you get?
C#m
And put in twice what you get back from this shit
F#m
Though what you sacrifice barely is half, never give
F#m
Rap is my shift
B
But it's like my shield at the same time I wield, I'ma knife this will
 B                                         C#m
Sometimes I feel just like B. Real from Cypress Hill
C#m
How I can just kill a cypher, survivor's guilt
C#m
I rhyme like life is still an uphill climb
C#m
Ready to face it, each challenge waitin'
C#m
Taste it, it's salivation, I'm wagin' retaliation
C#m                            F#m
Look what I have built, reputation is delegation
F#m
The only thing I'm capable of makin' is amazing
                       B
Only thing you're capable of makin' is a false statement
                     C#m
An accusation... I am legendary status, in fact
C#m
That is the only way you'll ever be able to say
C#m
Your legend is makin' an allegation
C#m
I write with the left, same hand I hold the mic with
C#m
As I fight to the death, 'til my last breath
A
Managed to prove who the best man is
A                                        B
Surveil it, all cards be the only ones left standing
B
In the end, but I ain't gonna be the only one with the advantage
     C#m
Of knowing what it's like to be southpaw
 C#m  
Cause you can bet your ass you'll be left handed

[HOOK]
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
With every ounce of my blood
C#m
With every breath in my lungs
C#m
Won't stop until I'm phe-no-menal
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
However long that it takes
C#m
I'll go to whatever rates
C#m
It's gonna make me a monster though
C#m
I am phenomenal
C#m
But I would never say, 'Oh, it's impossible'
                         A  B
Cause I'm gonna be phenomenal
