President Trump may not have sent for Eminem, but that didn’t stop the famous rapper for coming for him. During last night’s BET Awards, Marshall Mathers made his return with a wild four-and-a-half minute freestyle that focused squarely on the current POTUS.
The segment was shot in Eminem’s hometown of Detroit as part of the BET Awards traditional cypher, with Em delivering a verbal smackdown on his own while surrounded by a group of friends in a parking garage.
Titling the video “The Storm,” Em delivers a tidal wave of insults directed towards the leader of the free world, including Trump’s support of white supremacists, his criticism of NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem, and the difference in the media’s treatment of Trump versus President Obama and Hillary Clinton.
The R-rated performance includes lines like, “We better give Obama props because what we got in office now’s a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust / Trump when it comes to giving a s**t, you’re as stingy as I am / You don’t got the nuts like an empty asylum,” and, “Then who’s gonna pay for his extravagant trips back and forth with his family / His golf resorts and mansions / Same s**t that he tormented Hillary for and he slandered.”
As for his fans who are Trump supporters, Eminem made it clear that it’s him or the other guy, saying, “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.”
Praise for Eminem’s incredible performance quickly began flooding social media last night.
