Released in August 2018, Kamikaze Album marked Eminem’s return after the lukewarm reception of his previous album, Revival, which received criticism from both critics and fans.

In stark contrast, Kamikaze received glowing reviews, with HipHopDX dubbing it the “comeback” Eminem had been craving.The surprise drop of the album, with no prior warning or announcement, sent Twitter into a frenzy.

Kamikaze featured collaborations with artists like Joyner Lucas and Royce Da 5’9″ and delved into topics such as the backlash against Revival, the disbandment of D12, and Eminem’s thoughts on mumble rap.

The album’s cover art paid homage to Beastie Boys’ influential 1986 rap album, License To Ill.Eminem, celebrating Kamikaze’s No. 1 chart success in 103 countries and over 434,000 total album equivalent units sold in the first week, responded to critics with a full-page ad in The Hollywood Reporter. 

The ad humorously declared, “NOT FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION!” while expressing gratitude to supporters and playfully addressing naysayers.

Matthew Belloni, the Editorial Director of The Hollywood Reporter, shared the ad on Twitter, sparking a conversation about whether it was the print equivalent of a diss track. In this way, Eminem’s Kamikaze Album left an indelible mark on the music industry, both with its music and its iconic collectibles.
