Eminem gives ultimatum to fans in anti-Trump freestyle
WARNING: This story contains graphic language.
The Rap God rapper “came to stomp” during Tuesday night’s BET Hip-Hop Awards with an explosive rap cypher.
The pre-recorded freestyle titled, The Storm, sees Eminem take down Trump for his Twitter presence, his luxurious lifestyle and questions Trump’s own patriotism following his attacks on athletes.
Eminem calls Trump everything from “Donald the b****” to a “racist grandpa” in the four-and-a-half-minute freestyle.
“We better give Obama props ’cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust while the drama pops, and he waits for sh** to quiet down, he’ll just gas his plane up and fly around till the bombing stops,” Eminem raps.
“But this is his form of distraction, plus he gets an enormous reaction when he attacks the NFL so we focus on that. Instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada. All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather. Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers. Then says he wants to lower our taxes,” Eminem raps.
Eminem also issues a passionate tribute to Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who began protests against racial injustice and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem before games last year and has been a target of criticism from Trump and others for what they consider “disrespecting the flag.”
“‘F*** that, this is for Colin, ball up a fist and keep that s*** balled like Donald the b****,’ Eminem raps.
“I appreciate you @Eminem,” Kaepernick tweeted, along with a fist emoji.
The Detroit rapper goes on to challenge his fans to “decide who you like more” — Eminem or Trump.
“And any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line, you’re either for or against, and if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for it for you with this. F*** you,” he says towards the end of the freestyle, raising his middle finger.
“The rest of America stand up. We love our military and we love our country but we f***ing hate Trump,” Eminem ends the freestyle.
Many celebrities took to Twitter to praise Eminem after he unleashed the fiery four-and-a-half-minute freestyle.
Eminem has criticized Trump previously in the nine-minute 2016 freestyle Campaign Speech and Big Sean’s No Favors.
In August, the No Love rapper brought his opinion of U.S. politics on stage in the U.K. when he led the 2017 Reading Festival in a chat. When Eminem yelled “F**k” the crowd followed with “Trump.”
Back in 2015, he also called Trump out in a six-minute freestyle on radio show Sway in the Morning.
He said: “”I’m f***ing worse than Donald Trump/On Lexapro in Mexico across from a Texaco in a McDonald’s drunk.”
Eminem’s latest freestyle comes as anticipation for his eighth studio album release builds.
