Legendary US rapper Eminem has just released his 10th album called "Kamikaze" with its cover paying homage to the iconic "Licensed to Ill" album by the Beastie Boys. In his 13 new tracks the rapper recalls Trump, his Grammy Awards and long career as a musician. Several of the tracks feature Canadian singer Jessie Reyez, rappers Joyner Lucas and Royce Da 5'9 and one of the tracks is a part of the "Venom" movie soundtrack.
The album came as a total surprise to Eminem's fans as it was not preceded by any announcements or media hype.
Kamikaze has been well received, with some fans going so far as to call him a "lyrical genius."

Other fans noted that the album feels like it was made to show all the "youngblood" rappers how the genre should sound.
@Eminem just destroyed this new age rap culture by himself. On behalf of the 80s babies, we thank you for this Slim Shady approved assault on these clowns. Eminem in the booth like……🤣😎🔥🔥 #kamikaze #KAMIKAZƎ pic.twitter.com/q190zzFlxB— StatiicX (@Statiic_X) August 31, 2018
