Eminem takes down Trump in savage freestyle at the BET Awards
He references tensions with North Korea, the national anthem protest and Trump’s overdone tan
Eminem has unleashed a no-holds-barred attack on Trump in a four-minute freestyle aired at Tuesday’s night’s BET Awards.
Titled The Storm, Eminem raps in the freestyle: “Racism’s the only thing he’s fantastic for/ ‘Cause that’s how he gets his fucking rocks off and he’s orange/ Yeah, sick tan, that’s why he wants us to disband/ ‘Cause he can not withstand/ The fact we’re not afraid of Trump.”
In reference to rising tensions between America and North Korea, Eminem calls Trump “a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust“. He also shows his support for player Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to protest the national anthem, with the line: “This is for Colin (Kaepernick), ball up a fist“. In response, Kaepernick tweeted: “I appreciate you @Eminem”.

Eminem ends the rap by urging his fans to stand with him. The closing verse goes: “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/ Fuck you.”
