Eminem has released his latest album, and fans are raging over his Kamikaze. Guess who liked it the most? LeBron James.
The king of basketball stood by Eminem, and gave his specific opinion on the matter. He really likes Kamikaze, and respects Eminem’s work. The new album was released on August 30, and LeBron can’t get enough of it. Each of the 13 tracks caught his attention, and the king took to Twitter to give his opinion.
“Now if y’all think this @Eminem ‘Kamikaze’ album isn’t [fire emojis] you’re just hating and incompetent of lyrics/cadence/breakdown of his raps,” he wrote. “Oh and he putting quite a few in a body bag too!” LeBron wrote.
The King also memorized the lyrics of Fall, and mouthed the words to every bar.
There was only one criticism. “There’s only one thing I can say negative about Kamikaze and that is ‘Kamikaze’ and ‘Fall’ on the track list is misplaced.”
The king of rap spit venom at Lil Pump, Lil Xan, and Tyler The Creator in his title track, and fans noticed this on the night Kamikaze was released. But, next morning it was changed, and the venom-spitting track was called “Fall.”
There was a huge controversy surrounding Kamikaze. People attacked Eminem for using his homophobic slur at the Odd Future vet in his lyrics. Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon contributed vocals to the track, and already regrets over his role. He even said to “kill the track.”
“Eminem is one of the best rappers of all time, there is no doubt. I have and will respect that. Tho, this is not the time to criticize Youth, it’s the time to listen. To act. It is certainly not the time for slurs,” @blobtower wrote on Twitter.
Well, LeBron likes the album, and he will sure stand by Eminem throughout all this criticism.
