Michael Phelps has been annihilating the competition at the Rio Olympics and he's been doing it by getting jacked to his favorite jams before each race. On an NBC Facebook Live stream the swimmer revealed that his favorite artist was Eminem (to fuel those memes) and he also listened to Skrillex and Steve Aoki before hitting the pool. Specifically, Skrillex's remix of Nero's "Promises" and Aoki and Afrojack's "No Beef" prior to winning Gold in Saturday's 4x100-meter medley relay.
