Detroit-bred emcee Eminem had everyone waking up in shambles when it was announced that he dropped his 10th album, Kamikaze, with no warning. The LP comes only eight months after his highly anticipated album, Revival, which wasn't well-received by critics. Boldly captioned, “tried not 2 overthink this 1... enjoy. [middle finger emoji],” it’s evident that Eminem had no f**ks to give.
Co-produced by Dr. Dre, the 13-track album sent out shock waves, as Em threw jabs at Drake and Chance the Rapper, praised J. Cole, Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar, but overtly fired full rounds at Lil Yatchy, Lil Pump, Machine Gun Kelly, Tyler the Creator, Joe Budden and anyone else he deemed necessary.
It’s clear he wasn’t here to play games, despite his manager Paul Rosenberg's reservations as heard on "Paul (Skit)." Slim Shady started off the album, blazing on "The Ringer": “Yeah, yo I'm just gonna write down my first thoughts and see where this takes me, ’cause I feel like I wanna punch the world in the f**kin' face right now…”
Kamikaze also features rising R&B singer Jessie Reyes on two bold singles, "Nice Guy," and "Good Guy." The album is currently available on streaming services everywhere.
