Eminem Slams Critics With "Kamikaze" Print Ad
He's not done.
No matter what Eminem does not, the music critics are seemingly always out for blood. When he fell Revival last year, are facing an onslaught of negativity. In consequence, Em returned with his surprise album Kamikaze last month and fired again to all his detractors.
But, of course, the critics do not like the project. So, Slim Shady and his team decided to take out a full-page print ad in The Hollywood Reporter blasting of various publications to criticize his latest work — despite the fact the Kamikaze is # 1 in 103 countries and has sold more than 434,000 total album equivalent units in its first week.
"NOT FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION!" the announcement reads. "Thank you for the support of a**holes!"
Editorial Director of The Hollywood Reporter, Matthew Belloni, shared the announcement via Twitter on Thursday (September 20).
"Respect to @Eminem and his label for the execution of this very funny ad in @THR magazine," Belloni wrote. "Is this the print equivalent of a diss track?"

Kamikaze, Em is the 10th studio album, arrives on August 31 and has been a heavy topic of conversation ever since.
In particular, it launched a war of words between the Shadow and Machine Gun Kelly. Em is delivered what appears to be the final blow,"Killshot," at the beginning of this month. This marked the largest Hip Hop video debut on YouTube of the story.
