Eminem launched the campaign for a new album, expected out on Nov. 17, with a hard-hitting four-minute video criticizing President Donald Trump that aired on the BET Hip-Hop Awards on Tuesday night, Oct. 11.
The clip, filmed on Oct. 6 in a parking garage by Cobo Arena, features a hoodied and bearded Eminem lashing out at Trump in freestyle mode, declaring that, “You better give Obama props ‘cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust.” The Detroit rapper, who maintains a studio in Ferndale, also addresses Trump’s battle with the NFL and attacks his lack of response for gun control reform and humanitarian relief for Puerto Rico and voice support for the U.S. military.
Eminem previously took on Trump in “Campaign Speech,” a stand-alone single released last October, prior to the U.S. presidential election.
No other details about Eminem’s album -- his eighth overall and first since “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” in 2013 -- have been revealed. He also makes a guest-appearance on the song “Revenge” from P!nk’s new album “Beautiful Trauma,” which comes out Friday, Oct. 13, and is collaborating with Dr. Dre on music for the upcoming film “Bodied” about battle rapping that Eminem is co-producing.
