Justin Vernon Has Spoken Out Against His Collab On Eminem’s New Album

Written by Jackson Langford on September 1, 2018

Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon has spoken out against his collaboration on Eminem‘s surprise album Kamikaze, saying he doesn’t agree with the song’s message.

Vernon features on the song ‘Fall’ in which Eminem, among other disses, refers to Tyler, The Creator as a ‘f***ot’, albeit censored with a record scratch.

Vernon took to Twitter to release a few statements on the song, saying how his vocals were recorded at a different time before he was aware what the final product would be. He is asking to not be associated with it.

“Was not in the studio for the Eminem track…,” he wrote. “…Not a fan of the message, it’s tired. Asked them to change the track, wouldn’t do it.”

“Eminem is one of the best rappers of all time, there is no doubt,” he continued. “I have and will respect that… It is certainly not the time for slurs. Wish they would have listened when we asked them to change it.”

He ended by saying that he “was wrong and we are gonna kill this track.”
