Eminem Tackles White Privilege In New Single 'Untouchable'

With just a week to go until he makes his official return, Eminem has revealed a little more of his upcoming ninth studio album, Revival. After dropping a tracklist, that not everyone was best pleased about, Slim Shady has unveiled the politically engaged single "Untouchable," criticizing race inequalities in America. 

Over an evolving musical background, he raps: "Throughout history, African-Americans have been treated like shit, and I admit there have been times where it’s been embarrassing to be a white boy."

He goes on to reference the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray who died from spinal injuries a week after being taken into police custody in 2016. 

To top off the new release, the rapper has also treated us to a visual preview of the album's artwork, which is to feature a transparent US flag on the front cover. A couple of months on from his Trump takedown at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, everything seems to point to a highly politicised album – and we're 100% here for it. 

Revival will be released in full on December 15.
