Like all Eminem albums, Music To By Murdered By's lyrical content has left some offended.
His bars about the 2017 Manchester bombing at an Ariana Grande show had folks particularly up in arms.
Offense is magnified in these days of Twitter and other social media, and Shady felt the need to address all of the snowflakes who felt melted by his murderous bars.
“Cause, see, they call me a menace and if the shoe fits, I'll wear it. But if it don't, then y'all will swallow the truth, grin and bear it” #Renegade #MusicToBeMurderedBy pic.twitter.com/2aIFk2kz8a— Marshall Mathers (@Eminem) January 23, 2020
"Gentle listener, In today’s wonderful world murder has become so commonplace that we are a society obsessed and fascinated by it," Eminem says in the beignning of his statement. "I thought why not make a sport if it, and murder over beats? So before you jump the gun,please allow me to explain.
"This album was not made for the squeamish. If you are easily offended or unnerved at the screams of bloody murder, this may not be the collection for you. Certain selections have been designed to shock the conscience, which may cause positive action. Unfortunately, darkness has truly fallen upon us."
"So you see, murder in this instance isn’t always literal, nor pleasant. These bars are only meant for the sharpest of knives in the drawers. For the victims of this album, may you rest peacefully. For the rest of you, please listen more closely next time. Goodnight! With deepest sympathy, Eminem."
