Eminem Releases New Song “Campaign Speech”
Two days after his 44th birthday, a new Eminem song titled "Campaign Speech" has dropped, a near-eight minute song that references Colin Kaepernick, the Apple Watch, Donald Trump and other modern day current events.
On Twitter, Em wrote, "Don't worry I'm working on an album! Here's something meanwhile." A beat never really materializes as Shady moves in and out of flows, flexing his unmatched technical prowess on the mic.
As is to be expected with Em, the song is dense in rhyme and wordplay. "Skeletor, I went to hell and fell a floor/A predator, I'm headed for competitors/Better warn 'em, what I lack in tact and a set of morals/I make up for in metaphors like a cosmetic store." He as well paints a a detailed picture involving George Zimmerman and Daniel Pantaleo, the police officer involved in the death of Eric Garner.
Of Donald Trump, he raps, "Consider me a dangerous man, but you should be afraid of this dang candidate/You say Trump doesn’t kiss ass like a puppet/Cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funding/And that’s what you wanted/ A fuckin’ loose cannon who's blunt with his hand on the button who doesn’t have to answer to no one."
Listen to the track up top, with the third and final presidential debate taking place tonight.
