WELP. Didn’t see this one coming. Eminem just dropped a surprise new album from virtually outta nowhere.
The man born Marshall Mathers chose midnight US time to fling Kamikaze out into the world; a 13-track album of brand new material, which stands as his second LP inside just 8 months.

There’s guest spots a plenty on the new LP from the likes of Jessie Reyes, Royce Da 5’9″, and Joyner Lucas. The album art, for those wondering, is an absurdly close homage/blatant rip-off of the Beastie Boys‘ iconic album art for their classic 1986 debut Licensed to Ill. Whether that’s a knowing nod or something more sinister remains to be seen just yet.
Regardless, the new album is out right this very second on all yr usual online streaming outlets, meaning your Friday commute home probably just got its soundtrack sorted. Y’know, if jamming 45-year-old Eminem into yr earholes sounds like your idea of a fun time.
Happy Friday, mates. Happy Friday indeed.
