Eminem dropped a surprise album on Friday called Kamizake.
What is no surprise, however, is that the rapper has used an antigay slur. In the track "Fall," Eminem directed the f word at another rapper, Tyler, The Creator, reports Billboard.
"Tyler create nothin', I see why you called yourself a f*ggot, bitch," Eminem rapped.
Tyler, the Creator has shared harsh reviews of Eminem's music in the past, reports XXL. In 2014, the rapper tweeted that Eminem's album ShadyXV was "fucking ASS," adding, "why wont someone who loves him tell him NO."
The f word in "Fall" was bleeped. Regardless, many took to social media to slam Eminem for the offensive term.
\u201cGood morning to everyone except Eminem who continues to say f*ggot in his songs https://t.co/DvUUYSpTi5\u201d
\u201cI'm really really wound up by the fact none of this Eminem coverage mentions the fact he's STILL using homophobic slurs in his music [censored, reversed whatever it's about INTENTION], with some headlines even MENTIONING TYLER but not the actual slur?\u201d
Eminem made headlines in 2013 for using the f word and other antigay language in his song "Rap God." After being criticized, he told Rolling Stone he doesn't think the language is antigay but rather a generic insult, "like calling someone a bitch or a punk or asshole."
