*Eminem today surprised fans with a nearly 8-minute verbal freestyle that name checks a number of hot button issues, including police brutality and the 2016 presidential campaign.
“Don’t worry I’m working on an album! Here’s something meanwhile,” he tweeted to his 20.8 million followers this afternoon, along with a YouTube link to his new song “Campaign Speech,” which also premiered today on his SiriusXM channel, Shade 45, during Sway in the Morning.

After comparing himself to “Chuck Norris with a thesaurus,” the Detroit emcee tackles police brutality, rhyming:
“I’m givin’ Daniel Pantaleo a refresher course
On excessive force and pressure points
And dressin’ George Zimmerman in a fluorescent 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”
He also name checks Colin Kaepernick’s headline making practice socks that featured pictures of pigs in cop hats.
“At a traffic stop, getting harassed
Signed an autograph for this asshole cop’s daughter
Laughed, ‘cuz I called her a brat on it, he spat on it, and brought it back
Looking half in shock, had a heart attack and dropped
Dead, started falling back, but got slapped with a Colin Kaepernick practice sock.”
Eminem also found a way to include Robin Thicke, Bubba Sparxxx and Donald Trump in the verbal unleashing.
