On "Kamikaze", Eminem took digs at a number of rappers, including Lil Yachty, Lil Xan, Lil Pump, Drake, Machine Gun Kelly, Tyler, the Creator and Joe Budden. "I'm glad we live in a time where it's really starting to feel like people can live their lives and express themselves".
Eminem has released a surprise album.
When Eminem dropped his surprise album "Kamikaze" late Thursday night, hip-hop fans of a certain age immediately noticed that the cover was both an homage to and a spoof of the Beastie Boys' 1986 debut album, "Licensed to Ill".
Rivaling The Carters by releasing one of the most surprising bodies of work this year, Eminem clapped back at his critics by dropping what appears to be a return to form. I don't know if that's really a great idea, it's like what's next, 'Kamikaze 2,' the album where you reply to everybody who didn't like the album that you made replying to everybody that didn't like the previous album?
Trump "sent the Secret Service to meet in person, To see if I really think of hurtin' him him, or ask if I'm linked to terrorists", Eminem raps.

The album notes on Apple Music prepare listeners for the content of the 13-track album, saying: "Shady punches back, and he's naming names".
On "Fall", Tyler, The Creator is one of several rappers catching Marshall Mathers' smoke, but he went a little too far.
In his profanity-laced BET freestyle, Eminem called the Trump a "racist" and suggested he'd plunge the world into a nuclear holocaust, among other things.
Tyler himself has been criticized for using the word f****t, and explained to Arsenio Hall, "That's just a word, you can take the power out of that word".
