Award-winning rapper Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, has been a well-known Trump critic since the presidential campaigns began for the 2016 election. Previously, he bashed Trump in a freestyle rap “Campaign Speech” and in a 2017 released song with rapper Big Sean called “No Favors.”
His latest target against President Donald Trump has been called the “fiercest and most exhaustive” in the music industry thus far, by CNN. According to the mainstream media, the attack came in an almost 5-minute freestyle rap called “The Storm,” which officially aired October 10th at the BET Hip Hop Awards.
In the rap song, he criticized Trump’s usage of Twitter, family vacations, and his stance on various political issues including immigration. He stooped even lower, referring to the president as a “racist 94-year-old grandpa.”
Additionally, he acknowledged the recent protests taking place in the sports industry, claiming “this is for Colin,” while raising up his fist. Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, infamous for starting the “Take a Knee” protests during the national anthem, publicly thanked Eminem for his freestyle rap. He retweeted Eminem’s video and said, “I appreciate you, Eminem.”
In the midst of bashing Trump, he took a shot at his fans who are Trump supporters. He shouted, “And any fan of mine who is 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. F--- you.”
Conservatives, however, sided with Trump and called Eminem’s rap disrespectful. Among those who slammed Eminem was singer Joy Villa, well-known for rocking a “Make America Great Again” dress to the 2017 Grammy Awards, and other popular names. See a few tweets below.
The video will not be shown on Faith Family America due to a large amount of profane language. What do you think about Eminem bashing President Trump? Share your thoughts in our Facebook comments.
