Eminem has just dropped a brand new track called “Campaign Speech,” with references to the 2016 election, race relations, police violence, and more.
The monstrous spoken-word style cut stretches eight minutes over a almost non-existent instrumental. Shady addresses Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman, Colin Kaepernick, Donald Trump, and Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof rapping:
“Dressing George Zimmerman in a florescent orange dress and four inch heels/To address the court with a bulls-eye on his back/His whole chest and torso left on the doorstep of Trayvon’s dad as a present for him.”
“Consider me a dangerous man but you should be afraid of this dang candidate. You say Trump don’t kiss ass like a puppet cuz he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funded. And that’s what you wanted, a f**kin loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button who doesn’t have to answer to no one. Great idea.”
Eminem shared the track on Twitter, where he also revealed that he’s working on a new album. “Don’t worry I’m working on an album! Here’s something meanwhile,” he posted.

Em’s last album was 2013’s Marshall Mathers LP 2, although he did work on the Shady Records complication Shady XV the following year. In late September of this year, he was featured on Skylar Grey‘s buzzing “Kill For You”. Listen to “Campaign Speech” above.
