Eminem Slams Trump in Freestyle Rap During BET's Hip Hop Awards

  • DJ Khaled Cardi B Migos and all the stars turn up for BET #HipHopAwards 2017

The rapper-actor performed a freestyle rap tonight on the BET Hip Hop Awards and put the spotlight on Donald Trump - and it was delightfully brutal.

Displaying a keen awareness of current affairs, Eminem calls out Trump for being a "kamikaze" who will probably cause a "nuclear holocaust". "That's why he keeps screaming, 'Drain the swamp, ' cause he's in quicksand".

"This is his form of distraction/plus he gets an enormous reaction/when he attacks the National Football League so we focus on that end/instead of talking Puerto Rico and gun reform for Nevada/All these awful tragedies and he's bored or would rather/ Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers", he raps from the top of his head.

Here, Eminem criticizes those who have been tepid when it comes to expressing their opposition to the President. "All these awful tragedies and he's bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers".

The artist also reflected on Trump's strategy of distracting from scandals by starting petty fights to pull focus from hurricane relief to Puerto Rico or gun control in the wake of the Las Vegas tragedy.

Eminem also mocked Trump's notion of lowering taxes, questioning "who's gonna pay for his extravagant trips" to play golf.

Eminen says he loves the military, defends John McCain, gives Obama props.

"That's an awfully hot coffee pot, should I drop it on Donald Trump? Unless you're a POW, whose tortured and battered, to him you're zeroes because he don't like his war heroes captured".

The cypher quickly had Eminem trending on Twitter in the U.S., with much praise for his message coming from both fans and the hip-hop community.
