Eminem compares himself to Manchester Arena bomber in new album

The rapper surprised fans by releasing his new album Music to Be Murdered By


Entertainment Desk January 17, 2020

Eminem surprised his fans with the release of eleventh studio album Music to Be Murdered By, on Friday, reported CNN. Keeping in line with Kamikaze's reputation, Eminem's latest came without a warning and pulled no punches.

The rapper is  laready receiving backlash for referencing 2017 Manchester Arena bombing during Ariana Grande's concert in the album.

During a verse in the song Unaccommodating, Eminem compares himself to the bomber in the aforementioned incident. "I’m contemplating yelling bombs away on the game like I’m outside an Ariana Grande concert," he says in the song proceeded by an explosion sound effect.

Fans of Grande have since gone on to criticise Eminem for making light of the attack that killed 22 people. The #EminemIsOverParty started trending soon after the release of the album.

As a response, Eminem fans have started to share an old tweet of the singer urging fans to make a donation to the British Red Cross in support of those killed in 2017 incident.

This is not the first time Eminem has referenced tragic events in a quirky fashion. Back in 2003, Eminem referenced the 2001 September 11 attacks in 50 Cent's song Patiently Waiting from the album Get Rich or Die Tryin.
