Tuesday night at the BET awards, Eminem blasted Donald Trump in a freestyle rap that was pre-recorded in a Detroit parking garage. Eminem is in a unusual position, having gained fame and fortune in the rap music industry, after a working-class white upbringing. He has, in the past, straddled the two worlds, but in this video the rapper makes it perfectly clear where his loyalties lie, and he calls on fans, many who may be Trump supporters, to pick a side.
But we better give Obama props
'Cause what we got in office now's a kamikaze
That'll probably cause a nuclear holocaust
And while the drama pops
And he waits for shit to quiet down, he'll just gas his plane up and fly around 'til the bombing stops
Y'all president really gon try to diss Emenim in the morning and I'm already irritated... bring up his record sales, BET ratings, SAD!— THLOCK (@itsMikeJames) October 11, 2017
Then says he wants to lower our taxes
Then who's gonna pay for his extravagant trips
Back and forth with his fam to his golf resorts and his mansions?
Same shit that he tormented Hillary for and he slandered
I am not a fan of any award show especially the hip hop awards show, however Emenim just went ballistic on Trump an I freakin love it!— Don (@dink415) October 11, 2017
F**k that! This is for Colin, ball up a fist!
And keep that s**t balled like Donald the b**ch!
'He's gonna get rid of all immigrants!'
'He's gonna build that thang up taller than this!'
Well, if he does build it, I hope it's rock solid with bricks
'Cause like him in politics, I'm using all of his tricks
'Cause I'm throwin' that piece of s**t against the wall 'til it sticks
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 you with this:
The rest of America stand up
We love our military, and we love our country
But we f**king hate Trump"
Emenim slaughtered you why don't you tweet about that.— Christopher martinez (@DarthJARJAR__) October 11, 2017
