In absolute Friday treat, old mate Eminem has dropped a surprise album without a CLUE to anyone! Not long before the 2016 election, he surprised fans with an eight-minute song called "Campaign Speech" that showcased his disdain for Donald Trump.
Fifty-eight people died and hundreds more were injured when a lone shooter opened fire on the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017, firing into the fans from his hotel room contiguous to the concert site. On "Godzilla", the late rapper secures his first feature with Em, holding it down with a cartoonishly villainous hook; it's sad that he's not around to see it manifest, but his presence is appreciated all the same.
He encourages the people of America to do something about gun control at the end of the clip, asking: "When will this end?" The narrative in "Darkness" got particular attention.
A second cover has the same spatter and Eminem, sans hat, holds a gun to his head on one side and a hatchet on the other.
Earlier today Eminem was slammed for what was described as a "disgusting" lyric regarding the bomb attack on singer Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester Arena two years ago. For some, the allusion made light of mass violence.
The track in question is called "Unaccommodating", in which Eminem raps: "But I'm contemplating yelling "Bombs away" on the game / Like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting".
Eminem had, at the time of the attack, called on his fans and followers to help raise funds for the many charities supporting the victims and bereaved families.
"We loved Jarad with all of our hearts and can not believe our time with him has been cut short", she said in the statement. He has always said controversial things & that's part of the reason why he's so successful.
"But when they ask me is the war finished with MGK?"
