In his latest verse at the BET Hip Hop Awards, Eminem unleashed a wave of fury at President Donald Trump and it’s pretty much taking over the internet.
Marshall Mathers III is not known for taking a backseat when it comes to feuds, hitting out at everyone from his ex-wife Kim to Christina Aguilera in his songs.
Eminem verbally eviscerated Donald Trump in a freestyle that issues an ultimatum to his fans to support the US President or him.
In a four minute rap filmed in a Detroit carpark and broadcast at the BET Hip Hop Awards, the freestyle titled
sees Eminem pace the concrete and call out Trump on issues including the NFL, white supremacy, and North Korea.
The title and opening line is a reference to Trump’s recent, alarming comment about “the calm before the storm” at a dinner with military leaders.
“RACISM’S THE ONLY THING HE’S FANTASTIC 4/CAUSE THAT’S HOW HE GETS HIS FUCKING ROCKS OFF AND HE’S ORANGE,” Eminem spits.
The rapper, who has been a vocal critic of Trump in the past used the verse to pay tribute to Colin Kaepernick, who was the first NFL player to protest standing during the national anthem, with Eminem’s lyrics saying:
‘Fuck that, this is for Colin, ball up a fist/ And keep that shit balled like Donald the bitch.’
Colin Kaepernick, quickly responded with a tweet which read:
“I appreciate you @Eminem.”
The performance is the latest moment in Eminem’s return to the spotlight, and has so-far received praise from names including LeBron James, J Cole, and Kaepernick.
Donald Trump has yet to respond.
