Eminem drops 'Campaign Speech' and reveals plans for new album
Eminem is back in the studio working on a new album, but he has something to say before that comes out. “Don’t worry I’m working on an album!” Eminem posted on his Facebook page before adding, “Here’s something meanwhile.”
The rapper dropped a nearly eight minute-long “Campaign Speech” Wednesday that covered a wide range of topics, making references to everything from football player Colin Kaepernick to mystery novelist Agatha Christie. However, with a title like “Campaign Speech,” listeners know Eminem is going to get political.
The rapper doesn’t touch on the current political atmosphere until around the four-minute mark where he questions people who plan on voting for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump because of his anti-establishment rhetoric and critiques Trump’s temperament calling him a “loose canon.”
“Consider me a dangerous man but you should be afraid of this dang candidate,” he raps. “You say Trump don’t kiss ass like a puppet cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funded/ And that’s what you wanted?/ A f—ing loose canon who’s blunt with his hand on the button who doesn’t have to answer to no one/ Great idea.”
