If you're still undecided about who to vote for this November, let Eminem guide you towards the light (a sentence I never thought I'd write). The often-controversial rapper, who is currently working on a new album, just announced on Facebook that he has dropped a rap song called "Campaign Speech." In keeping with the theme of this election season, it's offensive, entertaining, and way too long. And Trump comes off as the villain.
The rap covers a whole range of subject matter—from Colin Kaepernick to Chuck Norris to Target. Then around the half-way mark, Em lets us know his thoughts on the Republican presidential candidate. “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 fuckin' loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button who doesn’t have to answer to no one/ Great idea.”
Here's the song if you have 8 minutes to kill:
His point seems to be that Donald Trump is far more of a threat to most of us than Eminem himself who, despite calling women "bitches" and once rapping about murdering his ex-wife, has never actually threatened on a live mic to grab women by their private parts.
Welcome to 2016, where Eminem is the voice of reason.
