Eminem Blasts Trump In Freestyle Rap At BET Award
Marshall Mathers, popularly known as Eminem performed a free-style rap during the BET Hip Hop Awards at the Fox Theatre, Atlanta, Georgia.
In a pre-recorded video, the rap icon ripped into the President’s recent response to the deadly Charlottesville protest, the NFL anthem kneeling and Puerto Rico.
In the 4-minute freestyle video called “The Storm,” Eminem called Trump all sorts of funny names, accusing the 45th US president of racism.
The rapper also says racism is the only thing Trump is “fantastic 4,” referencing Marvel’s comic book series and associating him to the character The Thing, because “he’s orange.” He also accuses the president of disrespecting the U.S. military.
The rap in part: “He gets an enormous reaction/When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that/Instead 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.
“This is for Colin, ball up a fist,” he says. “And keep that s–t balled like Donald the Bitch.”
“Now, if you’re a black athlete/You’re a spoiled little brat for trying to use your platform or your stature/To try to give those a voice who don’t have one.
“We better give Obama props/’Cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze/That will probably cause a nuclear holocaust/While the drama pops/And he waits for s–t to quiet down/He’ll just gas his plane up and fly around/Till the bombing stops,” he says.
“He says you’re spitting in the face of vets who fought for us/Unless you’re a POW who’s tortured/’Cause to him you’re zero ’cause he don’t like his war heroes captured.
“Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his. 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 hate Trump.”
