“Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line, you’re either for or against” Eminem raps in scathing freestyle against Donald Trump.
At last night’s Hip-Hop BET awards, a celebration of the amazing talent in hip-hop and rap in the past year, there was one standout moment that has got everyone talking. Eminem recorded a freestyle rap for the award show which was filled with anti-Trump rhetoric blending typical rap insults with genuine concerns and criticism.
It was a powerful rap and the backlash has been surprisingly less mixed than you’d think. A lot of people have come out to celebrate Eminem and his freestyle, including a roster of NFL players who have faced criticism from trump for kneeling in protest to the government. Surprisingly, considering his prolific online presence, Trump hasn’t responded to it yet, and his supporters have been surprisingly silent on the matter. Perhaps they were all too oblivious to the fact there was an event celebrating something culturally African-American.
Eminem even covers the president’s love for Twitter and his attacks on the NFL, with lines like:
When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that in–
stead 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
Then who’s gonna pay for his extravagant trips?
Eminem also goes on to say such notable lines as; “a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust” and “Racism’s the only thing he’s Fantastic Four / Cause that’s how he gets his fucking rocks off and he’s orange.”
Among those to applaud Eminem include Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to take a knee and spread the protest symbol. You can also watch Eminem’s full rap in his tweet below:
