Eminem Surprise Dropped A New Album & He's Already Sparking Controversy With Ariana Grande Fans
Eminem made his return on Friday with the surprise release of his latest album, Music To Be Murdered By. 20 tracks long and arriving without any warning, Eminem fans are sure to be well fed over the weekend listening to the follow-up to 2018's Kamikaze.
However, in true Eminem fashion, the new album isn't for everyone and is already causing some backlash online thanks to a line referencing the 2017 Manchester bombing at Ariana Grande's concert.
In the song 'Unaccommodating', Eminem spits the following lines:
"I'm contemplating yelling 'Bombs away' on the game / Like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting."
Needless to say, the Internet is pissed.
eminem literally just made a joke about the manchester bombing at ariana grande’s concert... that is just so fucking sick, y’all better not give this man any attention. people literally lost their lives, and you’re going to release music and try to make a profit off of them? pic.twitter.com/mKJo06RL9p

Eminem dropped a surprise album on the day of Mac Miller’s post-death album to talk about his temptation to drop bombs and I quote as if he was outside an Ariana grande concert. The cheek levels are sky high. Only a white man could go this far in 2020.

Neither Eminem nor Grande have referenced the backlash just yet, but he's no stranger to this. With his last album, Kamikaze, he received backlash for referring to Tyler, The Creator with a homophobic slur.
The new album, however, also features Juice WRLD's first posthumous verse, appearing on the song 'Godzilla'.
