The album kicks off on an angry note with The Ringer, which begins with the declaration that the rapper wants to “punch the world in the f***ing face right now”.
Eminem’s surprise album released this week features a few choice words for President Donald Trump.
Kamikaze features 13-tracks, including Em’s track for the upcoming Venom, starring Tom Hardy and Riz Ahmed, Page Six reports.
The group’s influence on Eminem should be obvious to any listener, and the rapper spoke to Rolling Stone about it in 2013. The cover shows the tail of a fighter plane that says “FU-2”, while the back of the album shows the front of the plane crashing.
Marshall Mathers, American rapper, professionally known as Eminem, in the early hours of Friday, dropped his tenth studio album, “Kamikaze”. The album artwork is an obvious tribute to the Beastie Boys classic, License To Ill.
The rapper told Vulture that the president makes his “blood boil” and he gets “flustered thinking about him”, adding during the interview in December, “I hope he gets impeached”.
There is likely a significant overlap between Trump supporters and Eminem fans, especially as Trump pulled off a surprise victory in Eminem’s native MI as he appealed to the same disenchanted white voters who also gravitate toward the rapper’s music. Despite being out for less than 24 hours, Eminem’s surprise new album now sits at #1 in the iTunes charts, suggesting it will follow a similar trajectory. So why pull out this slur against Tyler, the Creator, who has called Eminem’s 2009 album Relapse one of his favorite records of all time and came out as bisexual on his 2017 album Flower Boy?
“I tried not to think too much on this one… hoping that it pleases you” simply wrote the artist of 45 on Twitter.
