'There have been times where it's been embarrassing to be a white boy.'

Eminem‘s new album Revival is imminent, and on Thursday he offered up the six-minute “Untouchable” for our consideration.

The track immediately addresses racial profiling and police brutality, riding on a refurbished sample of Cheech & Chong’s “Earache My Eye,” and the chorus addresses white privilege. Eminem reveals: “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.”

The song improves once the sample goes away and Eminem raps over a more complimentary beat. The cover art for Revival—a collage of an American flag and Eminem face-palming—was also revealed. We’re guessing there will definitely be more Trump content on the album.
