Eminem put President Trump and his supporters on blast in a video that aired during Tuesday night’s BET Hip Hop Awards. The freestyle rap titled “The Storm” has Eminem lashing out at Trump as a “racist grandpa” and for being a hypocrite.
He also calls out Trump for using Twitter to distract from bigger issues and for his responses to hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico, the violence in Charlottesville, VA and the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
The nearly five minute video holds nothing back and is sure to generate controversy. Several celebrities and athletes including LeBron James, T Pain, Colin Kaepernick, Keith Olbermann and Ellen DeGeneres have lit up the twittersphere in support of Eminem. Olbermann called it “Best politcal writing of the year, period.”
Eminem is no stranger to controversy nor criticism of Trump. In October he released a freestyle called “Campaign Speech” where he called Trump “a loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button.”
The Detroit rapper also took his followers to task in his lyrics:
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 (middle finger)
