A new Eminem feature has surfaced today, courtesy of Royce da 5'9"'s new album, The Allegory. While the guest appearance isn't noted on the tracklist, he does, however, lend his vocals to track number 15, which is titled "Perspective - Skit."

The tune finds the 47-year-old emcee discussing racism and hip-hop's impact on society over a relaxing instrumental. He touches on hip-hop being a "mixing pot" and how virtually every type of music was created by black people.

"But you've got people of all races, like, coming together and helping shape this from the ground up," Eminem begins. "So now you got little white kids growin' up with black idols. And you got black kids growin' up with white idols. And you got -- it's just this whole mixing pot. Nothing has brought more races and more people from all different walks of life together than hip-hop."

From there, he addresses the influence of black people on different types of music saying, "Damn near every form of music, period, was created by black people." Em follows it up by referencing Chuck Barry and Rosetta Tharpe, before pointing out that Elvis Presley was widely considered to be revolutionary and the king of rock 'n' roll because he was merely a white man performing that type of music.

Eminem closes out the feature by speaking on the struggles of being a non-white kid in the '60s, '70s, and '80s. "If I'm a black kid, growing up in say the '60s, '70s, '80s, whatever, right? And I'm looking on TV and nobody looks like me and it's very stereotypical and I'm looking at fuckin'—I'm looking at toys and everything is white, the fucking action figures are all white. The fucking superheroes are all white. Like maybe there's one or two black superheroes mixed in there with mostly white. I don't how I'd grow up and not have a chip on my shoulder," he says.
