By now, we’ve learned that there’s no depth that Donald Trump and his team won’t sink to. And this week marks a new low. Because when Eminem thinks that your presidential campaign is in poor taste, you know that you’ve reached a historically unprecedented political nadir. That’s exactly what happened on Wednesday, when the all-but-retired rapper announced an upcoming album on his social media. The resurgence of the reclusive, real Slim Shady was accompanied by a link to the rapper’s newest song, “Campaign Speech.” (Listen here.) As far as one can tell, “Campaign Speech” is a diss track against

the misogynistic, homophobic Trump, as well as the haters who malign Eminem for being a misogynistic homophobe. If you needed another reason to give up on 2016, it appears that we have officially entered the year of white rappers putting out sincere, extended political statements (#WhitePrivilege).
