Eminem Releases New 8 Minute Freestyle “Campaign Speech”
Two days after his 44th birthday, this Eminem song titled “Campaign Speech” has dropped, a near-eight minute song that references Colin Kaepernick, the Apple Watch and other modern day current events, proving it to be something new.
On Twitter, Em wrote, “Don’t worry I’m working on an album! Here’s something meanwhile.” A beat never really materializes and Shady moves in and out of flows and topics making these bars seem throw away almost, the odds and ends and in-betweens that didn’t make the cut.
As is to be expected with Em, the song is dense in rhyme and wordplay. “Skeletor, I went to hell and fell a floor/A predator, I’m headed for competitors/Better warn ’em, what I lack in tact and a set of morals/I make up for in metaphors like a cosmetic store.” He as well paints a a detailed picture involving George Zimmerman and Daniel Pantaleo, the police officer involved in the death of Eric Garner.
Of Trump, he raps, “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 funding/And that’s what you wanted/ A fuckin’ loose cannon whose blunt with his hand on the button who doesn’t have to answer to no one.”
