Eminem Confirms New Album, Drops 'Campaign Speech'
Eminem is working on a new album and he’s already released a preview of what’s in store.
Slim Shady made the announcement today on social media. “Don’t worry,” he wrote. “I’m working on an album! Here’s something meanwhile.”
The nearly 8-minute long track titled “Campaign Speech” is vintage Em, with controversial statements and complex multi-syllable rhyme patterns. However, the beat features no drums and allows Marshall freedom to maneuver with his flow.

As usual, Shady names names with rhymes about a slew of people, including Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman, Robin Thicke, Bubba Sparxxx, Donald Trump, Stacy Dash, Dylan Roof, Prince Fielder, Christopher Reeves, Vivica A. Fox, 50 Cent, and more.
“I’m giving Daniel Pantaleo a refresher course on excessive force and pressure points,” he rhymes, referencing the officer involved in Eric Garner’s death, before moving onto the Trayvon Martin case. “Dressing 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 / In my present form / I’m Desert Storm.”
Marshall’s forthcoming album will be his first since 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
