Fans are going crazy over the new record of Eminem, named ‘Music To Be Murdered By’. But, as revealed by The New York Post, some are not happy with the track.
Eminem faces social media backlash for referencing the Ariana Grande Manchester bombing in new song lyric and the fans of Ariana Grande are furious about this. As many as 23 people were killed in the attack that occurred during one of Ariana’s performances.
The 47-year-old rapper had also dished on the Machine Gun Kelly feud, which is considered to be one of the most known hip hop feuds, apart from that between Drake and Pusha T.
One fan took to Twitter and wrote that Eminem shouldn’t have used ‘terrorist attack to gain clout’ and showed some respect to the people. Neither Eminem nor Grande has spoken up about the matter.
This new album was a bit of a surprise for the fans of the legendary rapper, who just got their hands on Kamikaze, which was more appealing to them than Revival.
‘Music To Be Murdered’ is the 11th LP of the rapper and it was released without any previous announcement, pretty similar to the marketing style of Kamikaze. The musical project also features Royce da 5’9″ and Anderson. Paak, Don Toliver, Skylar Grey, Young M.A., Ed Sheeran, Juice WRLD, Q-Tip, and Black Thought.
The album is sure to rock the music charts but it hasn’t been able to score impressive marks, as it received 61/100 from Metacritic. The Guardian, on the other hand, was impressed with it and termed it to be better than Kamikaze.
Lack of development is one of the most talked-about problems of Eminem, in terms of theme, character, and temperament. Eminem was excoriated by fans of hip hop for Revival and in response to this, he had released Kamikaze.
