Eminem Shreds Donald Trump in Pitch Perfect New Track Called 'Campaign Speech'

On Wednesday, the legendary rapper Eminem took aim at the Trump campaign with a new diss track, entitled "Campaign Speech." The 8-minute track includes attacks on the Presidential nominee, "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*ckin' loose cannon who's blunt with his hand on the button/ Who doesn't have to answer to no one?/ Great idea!" 

Eminem also blasts Trump's supporters in the track:

"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."

Additionally activist track references Trayvon Martin, Colin Kaepernick, David Hasselhoff, Robin Thicke, Stacey Dash, Vivica Fox, among others.

But Eminem and Donald Trump were once on great terms. The year was 2004 and Trump was a surprise guest to Eminem's release party of his Encore album. The event also celebrated the rapper's launch of Shade 45, his channel on SiriusXM. 

"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 time. "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!"
