Eminem set the internet on fire with the release of his surprise album, “Kamikaze,” on Thursday night (midnight on the east coast).
With album art featuring the rear end of a fighter plane with the tail marker “FU-2” (and bearing an uncanny resemblance to the cover of Beastie Boys’ 1986 album “Licensed to Ill”), the new release clocks in at around 45 minutes with 13 tracks. Joyner Lucas, Eminem’s manager Paul Rosenberg, Royce Da 5’9″, and Jessie Reyez feature on the album. It also includes Eminem’s track for the upcoming “Venom,” starring Tom Hardy and Riz Ahmed.
“Kamikaze” was executive-produced by Dr. Dre and Eminem.
The iconic rapper took a jab at many artists, even the Grammys is not excluded. Some of the celebs who fall under this category are; Lil Yachty, Lil Xan, Lil Pump, Drake, Machine Gun, Kelly Tyler, the Creator, Joe Budden, Charlamagne.
Twitter is lit with gifs and reactions of fans who have listened to the album. See comments below:
