Eminem Teases New Album, Unleashes “Campaign Speech” [New Music]

Guess who’s back? Shady’s back!

Eminem took to Twitter yesterday to announce that he is currently working on a new album. Not only did the real Slim Shady tease the album; but he offered us a taste of what’s in store, delivering a new record titled “Campaign Speech.”

The almost 8-minute long track features Em showcasing his superb rhyme skills using multi-syllable patterns and unapologetically unleashing his thoughts on a range of topics from Donald Trump to the death of Eric Garner and even George Zimmerman.

On Donald Trump:

“Consider me a dangerous man / But you should be afraid of this dang candidate / You say Trump don’t kiss ass like a puppet / ‘Cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the fundin’ / And that’s what you wanted / A fuckin’ loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button / Who doesn’t have to answer to no one—great idea!”

On George Zimmerman:

“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 follow 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2.

Listen to Shady unleash vitriol bars on “Campaign Speech” below.

A Trayvon Martin & Mike Brown Tribute: Woodworks presents “Beautiful Boy” feat. Daniel & Davion Farris and Jackie Gouche [Fly Music]

Beautiful-Boy-Cover

Woodworks, an independent record label based in Inglewood, CA, has created visuals for their original song, “Beautiful Boy”. This single was written and produced by Daniel Farris, founder of Woodworks. The video not only hits home for the activists of today’s social issues, but also pulls on the heart strings of every mother.

Coming into Black History Month with the recent racial occurrences, this generation has been constantly searching for positive ways to express their emotions. Daniel Farris felt inspired to create a song and video that spoke from the point of view of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown and the mothers affected by these horrible acts of violence.

Daniel’s passion for music and the arts is what pushed him to create such a record.

Daniel says:

“I wanted to capture the essence of the innocent victims and also supply my generation with a creative expression of what is going on today. Most of this generation is so musically-driven that I felt it was only right that I used my craft and my label to continue this push for change.”

As a true family masterpiece, Daniel’s brother and mother are both featured on the song and make appearances in the video.

Davion Farris (Daniel’s brother) says:

“Beautiful Boy” captures the love that a mother has for her son and gives life to the many victims of police brutality.”

This track isn’t your ordinary rap song, it’s an inspirational crossover ballad that will sooth the soul of the listener. The chorus is sung by Daniel’s mother and world renowned Gospel writer and artist, Jackie Gouché.  She wrote the Worldwide gospel worship anthem “My Help”, that was recorded by herself, CeCe Winans, and Brooklyn Tabernacle.

Jackie says:

“I am blessed to be a mother of four beautiful boys. God forbid that someone would fail to see the value in their lives.”

Westchester High School in Los Angeles, CA has brought this video into their classrooms and it has sparked discussions amongst the students.

A sophomore student from Westchester who viewed the video had this to say:

“The song was very emotional. It gave me hope in humanity. The video was a great tribute to Trayvon and Mike.”

Check out the full video below:

Woodworks is an award winning family of writers, producers and artists out of Inglewood, California. The label was started in March 2004 by Daniel Farris and Funzel Smith.

Hope you enjoyed this! Pass the word around!
