(AllHipHop News) Eminem released his ninth studio album, Revival, on Friday. The politically-charged project features lyrics about white supremacy, Republican policies, and the President.
As far as quality, Revival has been met with mixed reviews. HDD also reports the album’s first-week sales projections (280,000-300,000) are much lower than the 792,000 units collected by 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 in its first seven days.
TMZ caught up with Coolio to ask the “Gangsta’s Paradise” performer about the unfavorable reactions to Em’s latest LP. The 54-year-old rap veteran said, “People don’t want to talk about nothing these days. People just want to have fun, and party and bullsh-t. So, that’s what it is. Nobody wants to hear anything that stimulates any thought.”
Coolio also suggested younger fans don’t want to hear anything controversial unless someone else takes that route first. He was also asked if he thinks Trump will respond to Eminem.
“Trump is a little bit… he’s a weirdo,” responded Coolio. “So, he might do anything. He might have Eminem killed. Don’t be surprised if Eminem comes up dead.”
