As Donald Trump continues to divide America for his own personal gain, Eminem has stepped up his critiques of the White House occupant with a scathing freestyle during the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards, which aired Tuesday night.
"We better give Obama props 'cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust,” he rapped as he tore into Trump.
He also directly addressed Trump's recent stunts to stoke division and pour gasoline on existing racial tensions via the NFL. "This is his form of distraction,” he rapped. “Plus, he gets an enormous reaction / When he attacks the NFL, so we focus on that / Instead of talking about Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada / All these horrible tragedies, he’s bored and would rather / Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers.”
Raising a fist in the air, Em declared: "This is for Colin," he said, nodding to Colin Kaepernick. "Ball up a fist and keep that shit balled like Donald the bitch."
Towards the end of the four-minute clip, Eminem also called out his fans who may also be Trump supporters. "Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line—you’re either for or against," he insisted. "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: fuck you."
"The rest of America, stand up," he said with a raised fist. "We love our military and we love our country. But we fuckin' hate Trump."
Eminem's freestyle follows increasing rumors the rapper is readying a new album for a Nov. 17 release. It would be his followup to The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which was released four years ago.
