This Friday morning, at 12:00 am, Eminem tweeted a link to a surprise album, setting the internet on fire. The album is entitled Kamikaze, is 13 tracks long and streamable on Spotify and Apple Music. The only song that was teased prior to the release of the album is ‘Venom’ which will be featured in the Venom soundtrack, accompanying the film which is coming to theaters Oct. 5th.
The album was produced by Eminem and his long time friend Dr. Dre with quite a few collaborations. Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, Joyner Lucas, Jessie Reyez, and Royce da 5’9 all are featured in the album. It features a lot of old school Eminem throughout the album, even having a skit inside the album. Eminem takes shots at a long of list people throughout the album ranging from ex-managers to “subpar” rappers. Eminem states in ‘The Ringer’ that, “if you ain’t Joyner, Kendrick or [J.] Cole or Sean then you’re a goner.”
Give it a listen here, and see if this a strong enough rebuttal from the critically panned Revival.
