Eminem’s surprise album Music To Be Murdered By received both praise and hate last week.
Some people felt Em’s lyrics might be a little too insensitive for 2020. Eminem has released a statement regarding the criticism. He said, “Gentle listener, In today’s wonderful world murder has become so commonplace that we are a society obsessed and fascinated by it. I thought why not make a sport if it, and murder over beats? So before you jump the gun, please allow me to explain.” Eminem continued, “This album was not made for the squeamish. If you are easily offended or unnerved at the screams of bloody murder, this may not be the collection for you. Certain selections have been designed to shock the conscience, which may cause positive action. Unfortunately, darkness has truly fallen upon us.”
Do you like the statement? Do you think people that were critical of the work weren’t true Eminem fans?
