“Jumped out of the second floor of a record store/ With a Treacherous Four cassette and a cassette recorder,” Eminem rhymes at the start of his brand-new track. “In Ecuador with Edward Norton/ Witness the metamorphosis of a legend growing/ Like an expert swordsman from the Hessian war and/ Hence the origin of the Headless Horseman/ Born with the endorphins of a pathetic orphan.”
Scathing and unrepentant, “Campaign Speech” is as much of an appetizer for his fans as it is a reminder that Marshall Mathers is alive and well. The rapper shared the 8-minute track on Wednesday, telling followers, “Don’t worry I’m working on an album!”
The track takes a jab at Donald Trump.
“Consider me a dangerous man/ But you should be afraid of this dang candidate,” Em spits over the minimalist instrumental. “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?/ A fuckin’ loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button/ Who doesn’t have to answer to no one?/ Great idea!”
Em also has words for Trump’s supporters. “Run the faucet / I’m a dunk a bunch of Trump supporters underwater/ Snuck up on ’em in Ray-Bans in a gray van with a spray tan.”
