In his new rap album “Revival,” Eminem says it has been “embarrassing” to be white and he thinks about “checking out on life” and killing himself because he “can’t escape this circumstance.”
The 45-year-old rapper says in his song “Untouchable” that “there have been times where it’s been embarrassing to be a white boy.”
“Seems like the average lifespan of a white man is more than twice than a black life span,” Eminem says. “I wonder sometimes if it has a price scanner.”
“I feel like checking out on life, can’t escape this circumstance,” he says.
Eminem’s new album is being widely panned by critics, despite its anti-white lyrics and attacks on Donald Trump.
Music review Chase McMullen said Eminem’s “crusade on Trump and white privilege is fiery and perhaps admirable,” but added: “It’s truly unfortunate the music behind the ideas makes Revival the most abrasive and unlistenable he’s ever sounded.”
While Eminem’s music was perhaps edgy at one time in the 90’s, his song “Untouchable,” which appears to be the most popular song on his new album, pushes the same black victimization narrative you could hear repeated without controversy in any Fortune 500 boardroom.
Musically, it’s the worst song I’ve ever heard. The song opens with high-pitched, out of tune whining.
“Black boy, black boy, we ain’t gonna lie to you, black boy, black boy, we don’t like the sight of you. Pull up on the side of you, window rolled down, ‘profile’, then we wonder why we see this side of YEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWW,” Eminem screeches.
