Eminem releases new album and offends widely as normal
Eminem is back with a surprise release, and you know what that means: material which offends. Music To Be Murdered By dropped this morning and includes a song called Unaccommodating which features the line:
 
“I’m contemplating yelling ‘Bombs away’ on the game/Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting”
