Eminem just surprised his fans by releasing a new 13-track album called ‘Kamikaze’

Saying the rapper is a bit sour over the reactions to his last album would be an understatement.  Eminem raps that “Revival didn’t go viral” on his newest album.
  • Eminem released a surprise 13-track album, “Kamikaze,” Friday.
  • This is his 10th studio album.
  • The rapper goes after those who didn’t like his 2017 album, “Revival,” including the press. He also calls out younger rappers like Lil Yachty.

Eminem surprised his fans with the release of a new 13-track album, “Kamikaze,” early Friday morning.

The rapper dropped a link to the album on Twitter along with the note, “Tried not 2 overthink this 1 … enjoy.”

Eminem’s 10th studio album is a direct followup to 2017’s “Revival,” which received mixed reviews.

 

“Kamikaze” shows Eminem going on the attack at his haters for their reactions to his last album. “Revival” included songs which showcased an introspective, vulnerable side to Em where he opened up about nearly dying of an overdose. On several tracks of “Kamikaze,” the rapper brings up his frustrations with reactions to “Revival.” During an interlude, he cites a negative review from Yahoo to his manager Paul Rosenberg.

On the album, Eminem goes after Lil Yachty on “The Ringer” and playfully mocks Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble” on the track “Greatest.” There are digs at President Trump and vice president Mike Pence. The last song on “Kamikaze” is for the upcoming Tom Hardy movie, “Venom.”

Eminem teased the track for the upcoming movie Thursday evening.

At midnight Friday, Eminem went live on Instagram to tease the new album to his fans.

You can listen to Kamikaze on iTunes here and Spotify here.
