”The Storm” aired at the BET Hip Hop Awards this Tuesday, and is a call out to Trump accusing him of racism, hypocrisy, and disrespect of military veterans.
Eminem has a reputation for being outspoken about issues that piss him off, the most sensational being his ongoing tiff with the American President, Donald Trump. Be it at the Reading Festival this year, where Eminem appeared on stage donning a T-Shirt that read ”FACK TRUMP”, or his most recent rant dissing Trump in a freestyle rap video that aired at the BET Hip Hop Awards on October 10th, Tuesday. The almost 5-minute long video features Eminem in a black hooded shirt, freestyle rapping in a Detroit setting.
Check it out below:
Throughout his verses, Eminem ridicules Trump on his policies, his patriotic sentiments, and his averse outlook to military veterans. Eminem expresses his opinion of Trump saying, ”Racism’s the only thing he’s fantastic for//’Cause that’s how he gets his f**king rocks off and he’s orange”.
He also makes a mention of Barack Obama (”But we better give Obama props//’Cause what we got in office now’s a kamikaze//That’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust”), Hillary Clinton, Stephen K. Bannon, and Colin Kaepernick (”This is for Colin//ball up a fist”).
Colin replied with this tweet:

Towards the end, Eminem shouts out to his fans who are Trump supporters. He makes his statement saying, ”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**k you!”
Do you support Trump? 😉
