Well look what we have here! 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.
Available now on iTunes, fans can stream the surprise album in its entirety via Apple Music and/or Spotify. Hit play and let us know what record you’re fucking with the most!
