Eminem Slams Trump in New Freestyle Rap
Hip-hop royalty Eminem has a lot to say when it comes to current president Donald Trump. In anticipation of his eighth studio album Detroit native Eminem released his freestyle, “The Storm” this week on Twitter. The track is full of anti-Trump comments confirming once more Eminem isn’t a fan of Trump, signing off with, “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 it for you with this. F— you.”
Here are some of Eminem’s most charged lines:
1. “A kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust”
In reference to Trump’s Twitter slams on North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. Trump has repeatedly referenced Un as “little rocket man.” The thing that’s so frightening is that this isn’t a harmless Twitter war among celebrities, but potentially war inducing words against a deadly country with nuclear weapons.
2. “All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm”
Eminem along with many others have criticized Trump for causing Twitter drama with NFL players instead of dealing with real issues head on. Things like the hurricane in Puerto Rico or the recent massacre in Las Vegas.
3. “Same sh*t that he tormented Hillary for and he slandered then does it more”
Eminem rips on Trump for “supporting” the white supremacist group and his endorsement of Steve Bannon. Bannon was his former chief strategist who was also the executive chairman of the conservative media outlet Breitbart News.
4. “’F— that, this is for Colin, ball up a fist and keep that s— balled like Donald the b—-“
In support of the NFL protests Eminem references Colin Kaepernick’s greater effort to bring light to the injustices of his community. Kaepernick responded on Twitter with “I appreciate you @Eminem,” along with the fist emoji.
Overall these words are heavy and hate fueled, but are resonating with a lot of people feeling betrayed by the current administration.
