American legendary hip hop mogul, Eminem surprised his fans by releasing a new song, “Campaign Speech,” on Wednesday (October 19), just days after his 44th birthday and ahead of the U.S presidential election.
The 8-minutes track features intricately intense bars that can only be delivered by Slim Shady. Over the simple looming production, he addresses Trayvon Martin’s death, Colin Kaepernick and says that yes, he’s going to dunk some Donald Trump supporters under water, “snuck up on ’em in Ray Bands / In a gray van with a spray tan / It’s a wrap like an Ace bandage.”
On the fast-paced, nearly dizzying freestyle which he uploaded on YouTube on Wednesday, Eminem speaks on the major issues in America.
“Consider me a dangerous man/But you should be afraid of this dang candidate. You say Trump don’t kiss ass like a puppet ’cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funding”, Eminem blurts out with a venomous delivery.
“And that’s what you wanted — A f***ing loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button, who doesn’t have to answer to no one,” he rapped on a song filled with countless wordplays and double entendres.
Eminem says that this is an appetizer for a new album, which would be the follow-up to 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Since then, he has released a series of anniversary projects, including cassette releases of the first Marshall Mathers LP (which included a brick from Em’s childhood home) and The Slim Shady LP.
