Eminem's ninth album, Revival, is only a week away, but the rapper gives us another taste of the upcoming release with the new single "Untouchable." Using a sample of Cheech and Chong's "Earache My Eye," the rapper tackles racial profiling and white supremacy. On the track he blasts, "Feels like we're stuck in a time warp to me/ As I kick these facts and get these mixed reactions/ As this beat backspins/ It like we're drifting back into the Sixties/ Having black skin is risky 'cause this keeps happening/Throughout history, African-Americans have been treated like sh*t/ And I admit, there have been times where it's been embarrassing to be a white boy."
Along with the new song, Eminem also revealed the album artwork. The cover features the American flag with a shot of the rapper overlayed holding his head in shame. Revival drops Dec. 15 and features guest stars like Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, X Ambassadors, and P!nk to name a few. The album is available for pre-order now.
Previously, Eminem revealed the release date for his upcoming album via a fake ad for a prescription drug dubbed Revival. The ad was posted on Dr. Dre's Instagram account. Before that, the rapper released the lead single, "Walk on Water" featuring Beyoncé. A week later, he performed the track along with "Stan" and "Love the Way You Lie" with Skylar Grey on "Saturday Night Live."
