Eminem re-emerged with a new song this week -- skewering Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, addressing police brutality and revealing that he's working on a new album.
The Oakland County rapper, whose recording studio is based in Ferndale, announced the new "Campaign Speech" via Twitter and YouTube -- proclaiming "Don't worry I'm working on an album! Here's something meanwhile" -- and playing it on his Shady 45 channel on SiriusXM. He offered no other details about the album which will be the follow-up to 2013's "The Marshall Mathers LP 2."
Eminem takes on both Trump and his supporters in the eight-minute track, rapping that, "You say Trump don't kiss ass like a puppet/Cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funding/And that's what you wanted?/F***ing loose cannon whose blunt with his and on the button/Who doesn't have to answer to no one?/Great idea." Eminem also mentions San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin, Prince, Robin Thicke, Agatha Christie and actors Ed Norton, Ben Stiller, Christopher Reeve and Chuck Norris in the song.
"Campaign Speech" was an immediate hit, soaring to No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 chart.
