Eminem got sociopolitical at the BET Hip Hop Awards by dissing Donald Trump, but he’s not finished. On the second single for Revival, “Untouchable,” Eminem raps about racial profiling and police brutality.

In the first two verses of the song, Eminem portrays the perspective of a white American who is unsympathetic to the cause of black people. For the final verse, he switches to the point of view of a black person dealing with racism every day. The record, which clocks in at a lengthy six minutes, makes references to the police killings of Walter Scott and Freddie Gray. Longtime collaborators Mr. Porter, Mark Batson and Emile Haynie produced the song.
