The best reactions to Eminem's surprise Kamikaze album

The surprise release of Eminem's 10th studio album over the weekend triggered a huge amount reactions, both positive and negative.

Kamikaze created headlines with the large amount of rivals attacked by the 'Kill You' rapper on it, including Tyler the Creator - who he mentions in the same sentence as a homophobic slur.

Some of Eminem's targets on the album have actually responded favourably to being dissed, including the likes of Lil Yachty, Machine Gun Kelly, Joe Budden, Lil Xan and Lil Pump.

Others - like Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Akademiks - responded less favourably.

But along with dissing many hip-hop colleagues on Kamikaze, Eminem praises almost as many - some of whom were clearly touched by the recognition.

Perhaps the most excited reaction came from Californian rapper Hopsin - an artist who has cited Eminem as a major influence in the past - who posted a video on Instagram after hearing his name dropped in the track 'Fall'.

"Yo, craziest shit just f**king happened - Eminem just said my f**king name on his god damn song on his new album. This shit is crazy. Listen," he says, before playing the segment and screaming with joy.

"Whoa, shit! Oh shit! What the f**k! I didn't even know he knew who the f**k I was! God damn. He said 'don't tell him about the culture', implying I'm part of the culture. Oh shit, man, I gotta call my mom."

Hopsin captioned the post just as emotionally, calling it the "best day of his f**king life".
