Eminem made an anti-Trump song (and other anti-Trump news)
As the anti-Trump music continues to pour in from some of the most famous voices in music, none other than Eminem has weighed in with a distinctly vulgar anti-Trump take. He's shared a new song called "Campaign Speech." It's 7+ minutes of typically weird, rambling, offensive rhyming from the rapper that definitely registers as something of a throwback to his earlier, less radio-friendly days. While there is some predictably problematic stuff here, it's nice to hear an anti-Trump song that reads as genuinely angry rather than just, I don't know, righteous and indignant and quietly disappointed. It's also got some classically virtuosic rhymes from Eminem, who mentioned in tweeting the new song out that he's working on a new album. In the meantime, you can take a listen to "Campaign Speech" below.
Eminem is hardly the first person to have had previous dealings with Trump and come out against him, although the irony of the fact that Trump once introduced a "Slim Shady for President" speech on MTV should not be missed here. You can watch that video below.
There have also been more installments in the 30 Songs in 30 Days anti-Trump series (because there have been more days) since we last posted about EL VY's contribution. Now there are tracks from R.E.M. (which is actually a live recording of "World Leader Pretend"), Adia Victoria ("Backwards Blues"), and a remix track from Ledinsky called "DonaldTrumpMakesMeWannaSmokeCrack" (touché). You can listen to that full, updated playlist of songs below.
Meanwhile, another day closer to the election means another day full of artists voicing their displeasure with Donald Trump. Documentarian Michael Moore surprise-premiered a new movie called Michael Moore In TrumpLand at the IFC Center in NYC last night. The movie, which is mostly comprised of a couple nights of speeches that Moore made in Ohio, is due on VOD very soon (before the election presumably).
You also might remember that there were 100 nude female protestors at the Republican National Convention back in July. That powerful image of protest was an art project conceived by Spencer Tunick, and now a documentary is on the way that goes into detail about the project and highlights the story of the women who were involved with the piece. You can check out a trailer for that below (via Elle).
