Eminem has gone all in on politics and social justice.

In October, he ethered Donald Trump in his famous BET Cypher.

Last night, he dropped "Untouchable", the second single from his upcoming album Revival. On it, he discusses the always controversial topic of White Privilege.

"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," Eminem 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."

In the track, Em addresses police violence, forced segregation of neighborhoods and the Black Lives Matter movement. He also namedrops Colin Kaepernick.

It could be a risky move, given his diverse fan base. But the initial Twitter reaction seems to be with Shady. Check out what the Internet thinks, and let us know what you think about Eminem's latest.
