Eminem spits a slew of pop culture references in a staccato rap about Donald Trump that slams the GOP candidate as a “kiss ass” puppet and calls him a “fuckin’ loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button.”

No less than former KKK grand wizard David Duke weighed in on the rhyme with an anti-Semitic Tweet.

Duke said the rapper is a puppet of record moguls Jimmy Iovine and Paul Rosenberg, both Jewish.

He also wrote Eminem has been “for years, poisoning the minds of our youth.”

The white nationalist, an antisemitic conspiracy theorist, Holocaust denier and former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, has endorsed Trump for president. A perennial candidate, Duke is currently running for the U.S. Senate in Louisiana as a Republican.

Trump begrudgingly disavowed Duke under pressure from his campaign handlers earlier this year.

As usual, Eminem, 44, pulls no punches. He raps:

“You say Trump don’t kiss ass like a puppet?
‘Cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funding?
And that’s what you wanted?
A fuckin’ loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button
Who doesn’t have to answer to no one?
Great idea!”

Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, has been largely flying under the radar since the release of his last studio album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 in 2013.

For the past two years, he’s been the executive producer with his label Shady Records of the soundtrack for the sports drama “Southpaw.”

He released two songs, “Phenomenal” and “Kings Never Die” with Gwen Stefani, last year in conjunction with the show.

He posted his new eight-minute song, titled “Campaign Speech” today, and wrote “Don’t worry I’m working on an album!”

“Here’s something meanwhile,” he added.
