Eminem has received major backlash from his new album, ‘Kamikaze.’
The rapper released a surprise album yesterday and has sparked mixed reactions, with many listeners criticising the 45-year-old for his lyrics.
Eminem threw shade at a number of different rappers such as Lil Yachty, Lil Pump and Machine Gun Kelly, but this isn’t what fans are annoyed about.
The father-of-three has been criticised for using homophobic slurs within the new album and fans have taken to Twitter to lash out at the rapper.

This isn’t the first time Eminem has been criticised for using homophobic slurs as he also sparked controversy in 2013 with his track, ‘Rap God’, and made multiple offensive comments in his 2000 album ‘The Marshall Mathers LP.’
