Following the release of his diss album Kamikaze, Eminem surprise-dropped an 11-minute long freestyle – titled “Kick Off” – that takes shots at artists not just confined to the rap game, and some fans are not happy.

The video consists of the 15-time Grammy Award winner standing in The Shelter at St. Andrew’s in Detroit, Michigan, spitting rhymes aimed straight at musicians including Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber. The “thank u, next” singer got a nod in reference to the bombing at her 2017 Manchester, U.K. show while Bieber is suspected of selling drugs to Catholic school students.

In response, some fans have made their distaste towards Eminem’s comments known, with one person tweeting, “Eminem is far too talented for his subject matter to still be what it is at 46 years old. That’s where the disconnect is. His fanbase grew up, he didn’t.” Another shared their opinion, showing the loss of faith that some former devotees have experienced: “If someone, with a straight face, tells you ‘Eminem is the greatest lyricist of all time’, slap him, he lied to you…”
