Eminem dropped his latest surprise album at midnight and it has sent the internet into a frenzy.
Titled Kamikaze, the 13 track album is very much a long, angry rant about various social and political issues, particularly in the rap industry. It also directly calls out a significant number of popular rappers, including Drake.
No ad to show here.
“…if you ain’t Joyner/If you ain’t Kendrick or Cole/Or Sean then you’re a goner”, says the rapper in the first track on the album, “The Ringer”.
Eminem announced Kamikaze’s release on his Twitter account, saying, “Tried not 2 overthink this 1… enjoy.”
