Eminem hasn’t hit a home run since 2010. His latest album is a good way to continue that trend. It could be his worst LP since the last time they impeached a president.
His single, “Darkness,” makes a powerful political statement in an election year. Making powerful political statements is not how Marshall Mathers became Eminem.
Mathers used to have the magic of someone who didn’t take himself seriously. And he became rich and famous by clowning on anyone else who took themselves seriously.
For instance, the pious media crusaders, who feed on terrible tragedies and senseless inanities alike, and amplify fear for profit. The same media that used to blame Eminem himself for violence. He used to stand above it all, holding his own frame.
Then he went and dropped “Music To Be Murdered By.”
Eminem Faces Backlash Over His Bombing Remark From Manchester Officials
The line from “Unaccommodating” where Marshall mentions a bombing after Ariana Grande show provoked a wide criticism, which now supported by officials and lawyers.
The Guardian quotes the mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, who said: “This is unnecessarily hurtful and deeply disrespectful to the families and all those affected.”
Elkan Abrahamson, a solicitor for several of the bereaved families, said: “Eminem is a traitor to his talent; this is disrespectful, unwarranted and needlessly cruel.”
