    Eminem is back.

    The famed rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, dropped a surprise rap Wednesday in the midst of election season titled "Campaign Speech."

    The nearly eight-minute-long song takes aim at Donald Trump supporters and addresses Colin Kaepernick, police brutality and Apple. The explicit song features multisyllabic rhymes over a minimal beat, and wastes no time getting to the point.

    "Dressing George Zimmerman in a florescent orange dress and four inch heels/To address the court with a bulls-eye on his back," he raps, before describing a violent revenge fantasy for the benefit of Trayvon Martin's father.

    Eminem also attacks Trump's supporters: "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!"

    The Detroit native, who just celebrated his 44th birthday, released the song on his Twitter page, where he also told his 20.8 million followers, "Don't worry I'm working on an album! Here's something meanwhile."

    There's no saying if "Campaign Speech" will be on his forthcoming album, but based on this intense rap it's clear Eminem hasn't lost his spitfire touch. He hasn't released an album on his own since 2013's "Marshall Mathers LP 2," but he did work on the Shady Records complication album "Shady XV" in 2014. He also contributed music and executive produced the soundtrack to the boxing film "Southpaw" last year.
