“Unaccommodating” by Eminem

Within the general context of this song, the word unaccommodating can be defined as someone being rude and offensive. And this is a characteristic which the artists attribute to themselves. Young M.A’s opening verse reads more or less like your standard rap-music fare, with the artist boasting about her success, work ethic and to a lesser degree sensual exploits. Thus it is left up to Slim Shady to really introduce the shock, “unaccommodating” element to the song. 

And some of ways he goes about doing so and by stating he’s “God”, comparing himself to well-known terrorists such as Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein and even insinuating his willingness to shoot up a church.  But where he really crosses the line, at least according to some people, is by likening himself to the terrorists who infamously bombed an “Ariana Grande concert” in 2017. 

So in summation, “Unaccommodating” can be classified as yet another Eminem tune when he makes light of serious events, such as murder. But such is not intended to imply that he will in actually perform such acts.  Rather he is an artist who has made a name for himself by dropping controversial raps like these. And it seems as if this track will go down in history as another one of his more-disturbing tunes.

Release Date of “Unaccommodating”

“Unaccommodating” was released on 17 January 2020 as part of Eminem’s surprise album, “Music to Be Murdered By”. The label behind the release of this track is Interscope Records.

Writing and Production

The track was produced by Eminem and Tim Suby, with both of them also co-writing the song along with Luis Resto and Young M.A.

Had Eminem worked with Young M.A before “Unaccommodating”?

No. “Unaccommodating” marks the first time Eminem and Young M.A teamed up on a track.

Controversy

Eminem got himself into a bit of hot water with the release of “Unaccommodating”. Amongst a number of references he made which could potentially offend someone, the most-outstanding is the rapper likening himself to an individual named Salman Ramadan Abedi. This is the extremist who suicide-bombed Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester, England on the date of 22 May 2017. And the way Eminem goes about namedropping him is in a positive light, so to speak. That is he fantasizes about himself metaphorically ‘bombing’ the music industry, as in causing destruction and a stir, just as Abedi had done in the UK. And for the record, the latter killed 22 people and injured hundreds of others.

Now all of this is also on top of Eminem giving shoutouts, if you will, to the likes of the following evil men:

  • Recognized terrorist, Osama Bin Laden (1957-2011)
  • Dictator, Saddam Hussein (1937-2006)
  • Serial killer, John Wayne Gacy (1942-1994)

He also references the death of JonBenét Patricia Ramsey. Patricia was a child who was infamously murdered at the age of six. He references this child seemingly in allusion to how certain individuals also want to mistreat him. 

So as with any Eminem album, we know that “Music to Be Murdered By” will feature its fair share of controversial material. But “Unaccommodating” appears to be the one track on the album where Eminem really didn’t mind potentially offending certain parties.
