Eminem’s album Kamikaze dropped unannounced at the end of August, and garnered an amount of controversy as a result of its diss tracks and homophobic slurs.

Charlmagne mentions that he is happy to get his name mentioned by rappers who can actually rap. Despite the diss tracks he considers Kamikaze to be a good album. In the radio presenter’s opinion, Eminem knew as well that his last album was not good, hence his decision to release Kamikaze without promoting it beforehand.
