Eminem working on new album, drops political track Campaign Speech


There's nothing quite like a rap battle. But National's new ad too close to Eminem's Lose Yourself?

Eminem dropped some political truth-bombs along with his announcement of a new album. 

With the album news he released the extremely topical freestyle track Campaign Speech.

The nearly eight-minute track covers everything from football player Colin Kaepernick to mystery novelist Agatha Christie.

"Consider me a dangerous man but you should be afraid of this dang candidate," he raps. "You say Trump don't kiss ass like a puppet cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funded/ And that's what you wanted?/ A ... loose canon who's blunt with his hand on the button who doesn't have to answer to no one/ Great idea."

Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, tweeted a link to the track on Thursday morning, saying:

"Don't worry I'm working on an album! Here's something meanwhile."

Campaign Speech is not the first time Eminem has taken on political figure - he became embroiled in a dispute with New Zealand's National party after the party used a backing track he thought was lifted from Lose Yourself in a 2014 campaign ad.
