Eminem recently dropped a surprise album titled, “Kamikaze” in which he took aim at a few rappers and addressed the poor reception he received for his last album “Revival.” On first listen I will say Em was “rappin’ rappin” (say it twice for full effect). He definitely had something to prove as it was beginning to feel as if he lost his touch.
Let's be clear; I expected nothing less from Eminem in his BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher. He has always been a super talented emcee who goes against the grain and says precisely what he's feeling. I'm not mad about that, nor am I upset that he used his white privilege and platform in a beautiful way to address racism, and convey a message that Black people have been screaming to get across since number 45 announced his candidacy.
