Eminem is back! And he’s in classic bar-for-bar form blasting at Donald Trump from his Detroit home. The cyphers went crazy too.
Marshall Mathers III is not known for taking a backseat when it comes to feuds, hitting out at everyone from his ex-wife Kim to Christina Aguilera in his songs. But in his latest verse at the BET Hip Hop Awards, Eminem unleashed a wave of fury at President Donald Trump – and it’s pretty much taking over the internet.
In a freestyle cypher called The Storm, the 44-year-old declared ‘We fucking hate Trump’ while attacking him for his opinions on NFL players taking the knee, building a wall between the US and Mexico, and causing ‘a nuclear holocaust’. In the blistering four minute verse, Eminem spits: ‘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.’ Eminem also takes aim at his fans who support the President.

Fuck you.’
The rapper used the verse to pay tribute to Colin Kaepernick, who was the first NFL player to protest standing during the national anthem, with Eminem’s lyrics saying: ‘Fuck that, this is for Colin, ball up a fist/ And keep that shit balled like Donald the bitch.’ MORE: DONALD TRUMP This bizarre video from way back in 2004 shows Donald Trump supporting Eminem at a rally Donald Trump ‘will visit the UK in early 2018 but will not meet the Queen’ Donald Trump tries to claim that he came up with the word ‘fake’ Kaepernick took to Twitter after the release of the video, writing: ‘I appreciate you Eminem.’ Trump has yet to comment on the cypher – but with his track record on celebrity feuds, we can’t imagine it will be long before Eminem’s mentions blow up.
BET Hip Hop Awards 2017 premieres in the UK on Friday October 13 at 9pm on BET – Sky 187, Virgin 184, Freesat 140.
Full lyrics to “The Storm”
That’s an awfully hot coffee pot Should I drop it on Donald Trump?
Probably not But that’s all I got ’til I come up with a solid plot
Got a plan, and now I gotta hatch it Like a damn Apache with a tomahawk I’ma walk inside a mosque on Ramadan And say a prayer that every time Melania talks
She gets a mop–ahh, I’ma stop
But we better give Obama props ‘Cause what we got in office now’s a kamikaze That’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust
And while the drama pops and he waits for shit to quiet down He’ll just gas his plane up and fly around ’til the bombing stops
Intensities heightened, tensions are rising Trump, when it comes to giving a shit, you’re stingy as I am
Except when it comes to having the balls to go against me, you hide ’em
‘Cause you don’t got the f*cking nuts like an empty asylum
Racism’s the only thing he’s fantastic for ‘Cause that’s how he gets his f*cking 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 F*ckin walkin’ on eggshells, I came to stomp That’s why he keeps screamin’, ‘Drain the swamp’ ‘Cause he’s in quicksand
It’s like we take a step forwards, then backwards But this is his form of distraction Plus, he gets an enormous reaction When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that Instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada
All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers
Then says he wants to lower our taxes Then who’s gonna pay for his extravagant trips Back and forth with his fam to his golf resorts and his mansions?
Same shit that he tormented Hillary for and he slandered Then does it more From his endorsement of Bannon, Support from the Klansmen Tiki torches in hand for the soldier that’s black And comes home from Iraq And is still told to go back to Africa Fork and a dagger in this racist 94-year-old grandpa Who keeps ignoring our past historical, deplorable factors
Now, if you’re a black athlete You’re a spoiled little brat for tryna use your platform or your stature To try to give those a voice who don’t have one He says, ‘You’re spittin’ in the face of vets who fought for us, you bastards’ Unless you’re a POW who’s tortured and battered ‘Cause to him, you’re zeros ‘Cause he don’t like his war heroes captured
That’s not disrespecting the military F*ck that, this is for Colin, ball up a fist And keep that shit balled like Donald the bitch
‘He’s gonna get rid of all immigrants’ ‘He’s gonna build that thing up taller than this’
Well, if he does build it, I hope it’s rock solid with bricks ‘Cause like him in politics, I’m using all of his tricks ‘Cause I’m throwing that piece of shit against the wall ’til it sticks
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 and you’re split On who you should stand beside I’ll do it for you with this: ‘Fuck you!’ The rest of America stand up We love our military, and we love our country But we fucking hate Trump
