Feedback on Eminem’s new Kamikaze album has been pouring in since its stealth delivery on Thursday night (August 30). NBA superstar LeBron James is one particular fan who can’t get enough of the 13-track project.
On Friday (August 31), LeBron took to Twitter to tell the world just how much he loves the album.
“Now if y’all think this @Eminem ‘Kamikaze’ album isn’t fire emojis] you’re just hating and incompetent of lyrics/cadence/breakdown of his raps,” he wrote. “Oh and he putting quite a few in a body bag too!”
In a since-deleted Instagram story, LeBron already had all the lyrics to “Fall” memorized and was mouthing the words to every bar.
However, LeBron did have one criticism.
“There’s only one thing I can say negative about Kamikaze and that is ‘Kamikaze’ and ‘Fall’ on the track list is misplaced.”
The night Kamikaze was released, the title track found Em spitting venom at Lil Pump, Lil Xan and Tyler The Creator, among others. But by the next morning, “Kamikaze” was a different track altogether and the venom-spitting track was now titled “Fall.”
There’s already been some controversy surrounding “Fall.” Many people attacked Em for using a homophobic slur aimed at the Odd Future vet in one of its lyrics. Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon, who contributed vocals to the track, expressed regret over his participation and said he was “gonna kill the track.”
