Eminem bashes Donald Trump and his supporters on “Campaign Speech”

Eminem just released his latest single, “Campaign Speech,” and he’s dissing Donald Trump and his supporters.

Slim Shady shared the eight-minute track on Wednesday and he’s referencing everyone from Trayvon Martin to Colin Kaepernick and Dylann Roof against a minimalist beat. The Detroit native also announced that he’s back in the studio and working on a new album to follow-up to his 2013 effort, Marshall Mathers LP 2.

"Don't worry I'm working on an album,” he wrote on Twitter. "Here's something meanwhile."

Addressing the Republican nominee, he spits, "Consider me a dangerous man/ But you should be afraid of this dang candidate/ 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!"

Shady also goes in on everyone who supports Trump, "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."

Despite those venomous bars, Eminem wasn’t always a Trump hater. Back in 2004, Eminem enlisted Trump to help promote his album Encore.

"When the Shady Party called and told me there's going to be a convention, I said it's got to be a really big one—and it's got to be right here in New York," Trump said at the album launch. "Because this is the best city anywhere in the world. Am I right? Of course I'm right. I'm always right — I'm Donald Trump, I'm always right. I know a winner when I see one, and Donald Trump is telling you right now, Slim Shady is a winner. He's got brains, he's got guts, and he's got Donald Trump's vote!"
