Eminem, in typical fashion, held nothing back in a blistering freestyle rap attack on President Donald Trump aired on Tuesday night during the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
The Detroit-born rapper filmed a 4:34 video, which debuted during the awards show. Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, blasted Trump for everything from ignoring tragedies in favor of “causing a Twitter storm” to “support for the Klansman” and slanderingHillary Clinton. He also refers to Trump as “this racist 94-year-old grandpa” in the freestyle filmed in a parking garage in Eminem’s home city.
The video had 1.5 million views and was the No. 1 trending video on YouTube within hours of airing on BET.
The 44-year-old rapper also tweeted a link to the video, titled “The Storm,” which had nearly 130,000 likes and 70,000 retweets within six hours — not to mention 4,700 comments.
Eminem cited Trump’s recklessness in dealing with North Korea, saying the president would “probably cause a nuclear holocaust.”
“We better give Obama props ’cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust while the drama pops, and he waits for s— to quiet down, he’ll just gas his plane up and fly around till the bombing stops,” Eminem freestyles in the video.
Eminem references the president’s propensity for using Twitter — something the commander in chief will likely use to attack the rapper before long.
