Is Shady back?
Eminem's 2017 album Revival was not well received. So he channeled that anger into his surprise album Kamikaze, which has more in common with his early, fame making work than anything he's done in a while.
Here's how Twitter is reacting.
Now if y’all think this @Eminem “Kamikaze” album isn’t 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 you’re just hating and incompetent of lyrics/cadence/breakdown of his raps. Oh and he putting quite a few in a body bag too 💀! 😂 😂— LeBron James (@KingJames) August 31, 2018
Lmao me personally I️ think it’s fye Eminem took a shot at me.. I️ fuck wit Eminem— Underdog (@lilyachty) August 31, 2018
What artist you know that drops an album without saying a word about it and its #1 trending in less than 30 mins? 🤣 @eminem is a rap god— Lance Stewart (@Lance210) August 31, 2018
Can we all talk about how @Eminem dropped an album out of nowhere and slaughtered every single mutha fuggin whack rapper in the world. My god I got chills listening to some of these tracks. Brought me back to the 1st time I heard the Slim Shady LP when I was a youngin.— Shawn Michael (@VeganNegroDomus) August 31, 2018
I’m digging #KAMIKAZE. It feels like disses and dysfunctional relationships. Probably @eminem’s best rapping since #Relapse pic.twitter.com/W3La4syvy2— Justin L. Hunte (@TheCompanyMan) August 31, 2018
Feeling this new @Eminem album tbh... Speaks anyone that got into rap in the late 90s— Crypto Randy Marsh (@nondualrandy) August 31, 2018
So Eminem called someone a faggot and people are upset? Have you never listened to him before? Oh that’s right it’s 2018 where everyone is more sensitive than ever 🖕🏻— Nathan Ryan (@NathanRyan) August 31, 2018
Look I know y’all wanna be woke and shit but Eminem been killing moms bitches and calling people faggots since I was a child and we allllll nodded our heads to it.— ~.*.~Lilian:Uziward~.*.~ (@ayooovi) August 31, 2018
Eminem went full Thanos mode on his new album 😹— Moe (@MoeAlayan) August 31, 2018
How does @Eminem rap faster the older he gets. When he's 90 we'll have a lightspeed propulsion engine powered by the speed of his raps. #KAMIKAZE— ADO-KANO (@iAdokano) August 31, 2018
Eminem came out of nowhere and silenced all the "Drake's Scorpion is the best hip-hop Album of the year" tweets.— Major A. (@king_adze) August 31, 2018
The only people listening to the new Eminem were the mfs that wore Cookie Monster hats when they were kids— yung midpack (@FadedStupid) August 31, 2018

When you want to hear some real rap and @Eminem drops kamikaze, and on the first song he drops 100+ bars with no hook...and you have 12 more songs to go. pic.twitter.com/fBmhJQHKDD— Johnny Blaze (@johndoe387118) August 31, 2018
2017: I wish Eminem would get back to his old self and make a hip hop album— Bradley (@bbingham0320) August 31, 2018
2018: Eminem is a perfect sample of an artist who hasn’t evolved

"I belong here, clown / Don't tell me 'bout the culture / I inspired the Hopsins, the Logics, the Coles, the Seans, the K-Dots, the 5'9"s and oh, brought the world 50 Cent"— 😜STOONKY😜 (@Mthiya_SA) August 31, 2018

So Shady pops up, apologises for his last album, ends a few rappers careers, ends a few journalists careers, delivers his best album since Eminem Show, shrugs and snatches back the crown 👑 #Kamikaze— Matt Jones (@MattJones13) August 31, 2018
