Rapper Eminem has joined the charge to stop presidential candidate Donald Trump from becoming the number one citizen of the United States, albeit in his own particular way.
The top-selling rap artist, on Wednesday, shortly before the third presidential debate, hit out at Trump in a politically charged track called ‘Campaign Speech’ – with an explicit reference to the Trump campaign.
The star raps: “Run the faucet, I’ma dunk / A bunch of Trump supporters underwater / Snuck up on ’em in Ray Bans in a grey van with a spray tan / It’s a wrap, like an Ace bandage.”
A few lines later, he adds: ““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*****’ loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button / Who doesn’t have to answer to no one? / Great idea!”
Part of the track also references George Zimmerman – the former neighbourhood watch volunteer who shot dead unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in a 2012 confrontation.
WARNING: Explicit Language:

In response, Louisiana senate candidate and former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, David Duke, called the rapper a puppet and accused him of “poisoning the minds of our youth”.

Eminem also tweeted that he was working on a new album. His last album was The Marshall Mathers LP 2 in November 2013.
