Eminem Raps About Killing George Zimmerman, Clowns Donald Trump In “Campaign Speech”
Shady’s back with a monstrous rap workout. Eminem dropped “Campaign Speech” out of nowhere today, along with news that he’s working on a new album. The song is seven minutes and forty-seven seconds of a rappity rap fan’s wet dream. The beat, if you can call it that, primarily consists of a few faint synth drones.
Don't worry I'm working on an album! Here's something meanwhile. https://t.co/QX3cdpqFD2

It’ll take a while to unpack all the references and wordplay, but it’s one of his rare politically conscious tracks, with shots at both George Zimmerman and Donald Trump:
“Dressing George Zimmerman in a flourescent orange dress and four-inch heels to address the court with a bullseye on his back, his whole chest and torso are left on the doorsteps of Trayvon’s dad as a present for him”
“Consider me a dangerous man but you should be afraid of this dang candidate. You say Trump don’t kiss ass like a puppet cuz he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funded. 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.”
But then, as though he’s determined to erase any good will that may come from those bars, he goes and drops the F-bomb again. Hear the whole thing.
