Grammy award winning rapper, Eminem on Friday 17th January dropped a surprise album, it emerged.

The rapper made the announcement, which left his fans pleasantly surprised on a micro-blogging social media platform, Twitter in the early hours of Friday.

The 20 tracks album, titled ‘Music to Be Murdered By’ is his 11th studio album since the inception of his career as a rapper and acclaimed lyricist.

The 20 tracks album feature collaborations with Ed Sheeran, Young M.A, Anderson .Paak, Q-Tip, Don Toliver, Skylar Grey, Royce Da 5’9″, Black Thought, Q-Tip, Denaun, White Gold, KXNG Crooked, Joell Ortiz, and Juice WRLD.

Sadly, rapper and singer Juice WRLD died in December after suffering a medical emergency.

The tracks were produced by Dr. Dre, The Alchemist, Dawaun Parker, David D.A. Doman, and Eminem himself.

‘Music to Be Murdered By’ marks Eminem’s first album since 2018’s ‘Kamikaze’ album, which became his ninth consecutive No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

The album has the same album title as that of the famous film director, Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958’s album, who Eminem is obviously a fan of.

In one of the tracks, called Alfred, there is a 30-second clip of the famed filmmaker speaking.

Also, the album’s cover art was modeled after same cover art on Alfred Hitchcock’s album, where Hitchcock stood holding an axe and a gun to his head.

The rapper acknowledged this in another tweet, saying his album was “inspired by the master”, posting the cover art of the album.

Alongside the album announcement, he also released the music video for his first track, Darkness.

In what is fast becoming a habit for some world most famous rappers, Eminem also released his 2018 Kamikaze album no prior awareness.

in less than 24 hours, ‘Music to Be Murdered By’ has been surrounded by controversy in which Ariana Grande’s fans have come out on Twitter to strongly criticize a lyric in reference to Ariana Grande.

Ariana Grande fans claim Eminem tried to make a “joke” out a bombing attack at her concert in May 2017 which killed 22 people.

Figen Murray, whose son died in the attack, voiced her disapproval after being informed of the two songs on Friday morning.

However, Eminem fans have since come to his rescue by resurfacing a tweet from the rapper following the attack, where he encouraged his followers to make a donation to the British Red Cross to support the families of those killed and injured.

Twenty-two people died after the explosion as people were leaving the Manchester Arena following a concert by Ariana Grande as part of her Dangerous Woman Tour.

139 people were wounded and several others suffered psychological trauma.
