11 Oct Eminem roasts Donald Trump in BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher
One of rap’s very best, Eminem, unleashed a ferocious 4-minute freestyle on a BET Cypher on Tuesday evening, holding nothing back as he roasts US president Donald Trump.
The best selling artist of the 2000s had returned to the limelight after a four year lay-off since his last album The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Em leaves it all on the table with an instrumental-void offering that calls out Trump for his bigotry towards social issues, with bars like: “Kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust/ and while the drama pops/ and he waits for s**t to quieten down/ he’ll just gas up his plane and fly around until the bombing stops.”
The Real Slim Shady rapper continued his verbal demolition by strategically dissecting Trump’s domestic mess, which has seen the president try to distract Americans from the post-hurricane destruction of Puerto Rico and the recent Las Vegas terrorist attack that killed over 50 people, by focusing on NFL players not standing for the national anthem.
Eminem loaded his dexterous rhyming scheme and hits every nail on its head and lays bare every wrongdoing Trump has committed since his inauguration last year.
The rap guru then proceeds to address his own fans – “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 in your spilt, or who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this…” Slim looks at the camera and raises a potent middle finger.
Eminem has been widely commended for the freestyle that has spread like wildfire on the internet, racking up just under five millions views in half a day. Many fans including J. Cole and LeBron James have since come out on social media to thank him for not only a fire verse that’ll live forever; but for annihilating Donald Trump at the same time.
