It seems Eminem just can't stay away from controversies. His latest album, ‘Music to be murdered by', released on the 17th of January comes with no “promotion or pre-announcement” just like his previous album 'kamikaze'. Fans all over the world were, of course, thrilled to see a new album just 2 years after the last one.
However, the surprise album has not sat well with most critics due to its content and context. In 'Unaccommodating', the rapper went back to the unfortunate incident at Manchester Arena in 2017. His lyrics go;
“But I'm contemplating yelling 'bombs away' on the game like I'm outside an Ariana Grande concert waiting”.
CNN reported that the lyrics were troubling to Charlotte Hodgson, mother to one of the attack’s victims, labeling the lyrics as “disgusting” and “disrespectful”.
Eminem continues to rap in the perspective of perpetrators rather than victims, comparing himself to at least three serial killers in his latest album.
