Out of nowhere, Eminem decides to come through today and surprise fans with the release of a new album called Kamikaze, which is executive produced by Dr. Dre & Slim Shady.
The follow up to last year’s Revival contains 13 tracks in total and features guest appearances from Joyner Lucas, Royce Da 5’9″ & Toronto R&B singer Jessie Reyez, the latter of which appears twice on the project on songs “Nice Guy” & “Good Guy.” Meanwhile production is handled by the likes of Tay Keith, Mike Will Made It, Ronny J, & Boi-1da, among others. It also contains the record “Venom,” which will serve as the theme song for the forthcoming superhero film that Em teased us yesterday.
Following a quick listen, Em looks to get a lot things off chest on this new album, having took shots at those who have perceived his last album, Revival, negatively, including the likes of Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Akademiks & Joe Budden for that matter. In addition to that, Em also addresses the current state of hip-hop throughout this album, calling out several artists in the process like Lil Wayne, Machine Gun Kelly, Joe Budden, Lil Yachty, Tyler The Creator & more. It’s safe to Eminem came with a vengeance on this body of work and is here to remind everyone that he’s still without doubt one of the GOAT’s.
