Eminem criticised for referencing Manchester Arena bomb attack on new album

17 January 2020, 11:15 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Eminem dropped a surprise album today titled Music To Be Murdered By, and has received backlash for referencing the 2017 Manchester Arena bomb attack on one of the tracks.

Music To Be Murdered By is Eminem's first album since last year's Kamikaze, and features 20 tracks.

The new record features collaborations with Ed Sheeran, Anderson .Paak, Royce Da 5'9", the late Juice WRLD, Black Thought, Q-Tip, and more.

Eminem has been criticised online for a lyric in one of the tracks though, as he makes reference to the Ariana Grande 2017 Manchester Arena bomb attack that killed 23 people.

In the track "Unaccommodating", which features Young M.A, Eminem raps, "I'm contemplating yelling 'bombs away' on the game / Like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting."

Back in 2017, The Telegraph reported that the rapper did raise nearly £2million for Manchester Arena bomb attack victims.
