Guess who’s back. Eminem just announced that he is dropping a new album and it seems the working title is “Campaign Speech.” This will be the followup album to his 2013 platinum-selling project “The Marshall Mathers LP 2.”
The rap legend made the announcement on his social media pages and his fans are going wild. “Don’t worry I’m working on an album! Here’s something meanwhile,” he wrote on Twitter while posting a link to a video “Campaign Speech” on YouTube of him freestyling.
In the 8-minute long audio, Eminem rhyme about social and political subjects affecting America right now including the killing of black men by police and the infamous 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,” Slim Shady rhymes.
There are no official release date or any other details about the album, but given the current trend where artists are dropping album without notice, you can look for it any day or at least hold tight until Em give us the release date.
