Eminem released his latest album, Kamikaze, last month. On its tenth track, “Fall,” he called Tyler, the Creator a “faggot.” In Eminem’s recent interview with Sway, Eminem apologized for the homophobic slur. “I think the word that I called him on that song was one of the things where I felt like this … More »
Let’s face it, Tyler, the Creator is suaver than most of us will ever be.
Every day, the rapper reveals small subtleties about himself that set him apart from the pack, like how just this weekend he re-opened the Los Angeles Golf Wang store, all designed by Tyler himself, how he likes driving fast cars, or how his two latest tracks are spaced-out jazz gems.
Just this week, Tyler released a new song called “PUFF,” an instrumental driving cut that reimagines Tyler’s Cherry Bomb track “Blow My Load.” “PUFF” is one of the lightest reworks Tyler’s shared with fans to date — at least it was until Tyler followed up on the track just two hours later with his most mellow song yet.

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.
