Hip-hop has awakened the sleeping giant of rap and, with the surprise release of Kamikaze, Eminem is back with a vengeance. A kamikaze was a World War II Japanese aircraft making a suicidal crash on an enemy target, which thematically exemplifies Em’s 10th solo project. With his back against the wall, as he disses those who have something negative to say about him, Eminem continues to prove he’s a lyrical elite and those challenging him cannot lyrically compete. Kamikaze is one of Em’s best albums in recent years. Rebellious by nature, Em shows how much of an outsider he re- ally is in today’s trending hip-hop climate.
