Angry White Man™ Eminem is back with a brand new rap (and forthcoming album), and low-and-behold he spits fire at Donald Trump. Blessings for all!
Titled ‘Campaign Speech‘, the seven-minute long track is a return to form of Marshall Mathers being angry at absolutely everything. Obviously, this includes Trump, but is actually aimed more at the people who’re doing to vote for him.
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 fundin’
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 – great idea!
Yikes. In fairness, Eminem says that if he was president, gettin’ off in the Oval Office would be his first port of call, which is probably not far from Trump’s action plan.
Weirdly enough, Eminem and Trump go way, way back. As Mother Jones points out, Eminem got Trump to introduced him at a fake convention for his fake new party, the Shady Party, back in 2004 (this was a week before the presidential election that would vote George W. Bush into a second term).
“When the Shady Party called and told me there’s going to be a convention, I said it’s got to be a really big one—and it’s got to be right here in New York,” said Trump, to a crowd of ‘delegates’ waving placards and campaign signs. “Because this is the best city anywhere in the world. Am I right? Of course I’m right. I’m always right—I’m Donald Trump, I’m always right. I know a winner when I see one, and Donald Trump is telling you right now, Slim Shady is a winner. He’s got brains, he’s got guts, and he’s got Donald Trump’s vote!”
Guess their love just didn’t stand the test of time.
Eminem also takes aim at George Zimmerman and Daniel Pantaleo, essentially saying he’d like to murder the pair of them (Zimmerman for shooting dead unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, Pantaleo for putting Eric Garner in a fatal chokehold).
You want some? Come and get some, boys!
I’m givin’ Daniel Pantaleo a refresher course
On excessive force and pressure points
And dressin’ George Zimmerman in a fluorescent orange
Dress and four inch heels to address the court
With a bullseye on his back, his whole chest and torso
Or left on the doorsteps of Trayvon’s dad as a present for him
His forthcoming album has no release date set yet, but have a listen to ‘Campaign Speech’ below:
