Eminem has never been one to hold his tongue on the mic. Since the days of Infinite and The Slim Shady LP, Em has become known for speaking his truth detailing his troubling relationships with women, remarking on the drama of other celebrities or declaring his disdain for the likes of Ja Rule or the former Source Magazine owner Benzino.
These moments of candor are all over on Kamikaze, Eminem’s surprise retaliation album created as a direct response to the legions of Revival haters. Em doesn’t pull any punches on the album. In fact, he goes straight for the jugular of all his haters out there who have gone on record having less than positive things to say about his previous project. Though Slim Shady explicitly puts in the crosshairs several people (including rappers, his ex and politicians alike) there are still a lot of questions left in the wake for fans and hater to decode after Eminem surprised fans and dropped it with no announcement or pre-promotion on August 31st.Read more Read more
