Eminem is backing the studio cooking a follow-up to his 2013 release of The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Yesterday, EM release an accapella monster called, “Campaign Speech”. The track is 8-minutes and goes through a slew of disses and insult, but also our current polictial climate, police brutality, and Colin Kapernick. Eminem pick the perfect time to get back into the national conversation.
The plodding, dissonant track unsurprisingly calls out Donald Trump, along with the cops involved with the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner.Consequence of Sound breaks it down here:
Among those caught in Em’s crosshairs are the police officers involved in the deaths of Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin (“I’m givin’ Daniel Pantaleo a refresher course/ On excessive force and pressure points/ And dressin’ George Zimmerman in a fluorescent orange”). The rapper’s razor flow also takes aim at Donald Trump, essentially calling him a maniac dictator-in-the-making:
“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 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.”
