We’ve spent much of the weekend listening to Eminem’s new diss-laden album. My three word review for Kamikaze would be “it’s pretty dope”. But it’s definitely not a simple listen.
To appreciate the full breadth of anger and the sheer number of subjects targeted on the album itself, multiple listens are needed. But if you just don’t have the time, @HipHopNumbers has come to the rescue.

Posted on Reddit’s r/dataisbeautiful, the hip-hop statistician created an infographic showing just how many insults Eminem squeezed into the 13 track album.
- The total? 153.
- The percentage of lyrics that constitute disses? 15.5%.
- The number of individuals or entities receiving a swipe? 20.
It seems that Eminem is most upset with Machine Gun Kelly, dedicating 27 disses to the Cleveland rapper. Joe Budden, Drake and US President Donald Trump receive a combined 39 verbal attacks.
Surprisingly, South African artists Die Antwoord — which Em also deliberately mispronounces — receives 4.6% of the total number of swipes on Kamikaze.
As for the post, it received gold on Reddit, and also racked up 32 800 positive karma and 2400 comments since late Sunday.
For those who love numbers, and not necessarily potty mouthing, it’s worth a gander below.
