And just like that, Eminem delivers the most epic Donald Trump diss yet.
In a recently released track titled “Campaign Speech,” the 8 Mile rapper got candid on his thoughts regarding the presidential hopeful and his slew of supporters, referencing everyone from Trayvon Martin to Colin Kaepernick to David Hasselhoff. “Don’t worry I’m working on an album!” the rapper tweeted on Wednesday, Oct 19, linking to the nearly eight-minute song. “Here’s something meanwhile.”
In a vicious assault, the 44-year-old rapper says, “Consider me a dangerous man/ But you should be afraid of this dang candidate/ You say Trump don’t kiss a– like a puppet?/ ‘Cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funding?/ And that’s what you wanted?/ A f—in’ loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button/ Who doesn’t have to answer to no one?/ Great idea!”
The father of one also takes aim at Trump’s supporters. “Run the faucet / I’m a dunk a bunch of Trump supporters underwater,” said Em. “Snuck up on ’em in Ray-Bans in a gray van with a spray tan.” Later on, he throws out his infamous one-liners, including, “stegosaurus, Chuck Norris with a thesaurus” and “Robin Thicke with a throbbin’ d–k.”
Of course, considering the rapper and the presidential candidate weren’t always adversaries, some believe the song is just one big propaganda ploy. “Eminem is a puppet of (((Paul Rosenberg))) and (((Jimmy Iovine))) – For years Eminem has been poisoning the minds of our youth. #rigged,” tweeted David Duke, the former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and Louisiana senate candidate.
Back in 2004, Eminem threw a party to promote his recently released Encore album and the launch of his SiriusXM channel, Shade 45. During the event, Trump made a surprise appearance, an opportunity he used to praise the rapper. “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,” said Trump. “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!”
