Eminem strikes back with surprise full-length, ‘Kamikaze,’ takes aim at numerous rappers in scalding new material

Eminem strikes back with surprise full-length, ‘Kamikaze,’ takes aim at numerous rappers in scalding new materialEminem Kamikaze Min

In a time where mumble rap is the mainstream as melodies, harmonies, and brands seem to matter more than the meaning of lyrics, Eminem strikes back with a scathing lyrical full-length, Kamikaze, out of the blue, executively produced by Dr. Dre.

The intro track, The Ringer, wittily attacks media for his less than stellar reviews on his previous album, Revival, dropped eight months prior. Em’s specialty is rap battling, so of course 8 Mile’s own had to counter. Though, from listening to Kamikaze, it seems like the media turning Eminem mad got him back to destroying anyone in his path with his legendary wordplay and lyrical prowess.

A good example of his high caliber rhyming is when he goes after this era’s popular hip-hop music:  “Get this f***in’ audio out my Audi yo, adios // I can see why people like Lil Yachty, but not me though.” Em goes back full-circle later in the verse, claiming that’s simply his opinion and if it were up to him, there’s a lot he would shake up. Who wouldn’t? “Not Alike” featuring Royce da 5’9″ also finds the Detroit rapper taking aim and spraying. With the same vocal cadence to Migos‘ “Bad and Boujee” featuring Lil Uzi Vert, Marshal Mathers and Royce go on to attack the conscious desire for uniformity.

On “Fall” Em attacked Joe Budden, Tyler, The Creator (amidst homophobic slurs), and the Grammys while celebrating his inspiration of some of todays hip-hop geniuses such as Hopsin, K. Dot, and Logic. Eminem is touted as this generation’s greatest battle rapper, and with everything happening around him, the seasoned emcee pulled out all the stops on his surprise new LP.
