Breaking Down the Rap References in Eminem's "Rap God" Image via Vimeo

"Sama lamaa duma lamaa."

In the previous line he sets up this gibberish reference by describing his lyrics as coming at you as "Supersonic" speed. Then he underlines it with a "JJ Fad!" punch-in. It's a reference to '80s electro-rap group JJ Fad, whose debut was produced by DJ Yella, Arabian Prince, and Dr. Dre.  The "sama lamaa duma lamaa" gibberish section is a lift from the "Supersonic (Remix)."
