‘Rap God’ Eminem did the unexpected at the BET Awards, which were held on on 10 October. In a four-minute freestyle rap, the rapper slammed Donald Trump for his outdated ideologies and racist tendencies. Unleashing his rap wrath on the President, Eminem went on to call Trump the B-word and finished by showing him and his supporters the finger.
Needless to say, the rap took Twitter by storm with a bevy of celebrities praising Eminem for taking a strong stand and consequently putting things into perspective.
Known for his genius analogies, the rapper did not hold back even for a second, visibly frustrated with the political mayhem that America is experiencing right now. Between verses, Eminem — performing in what seems to be an underground car park — pauses, breathes deeply and calms himself down, urging all Americans to take a stand for their country. Criticising Trump’s extravagant ways and his xenophobic comments, Eminem says the President’s term could “probably cause a nuclear holocaust.”
True to form, he ends the rap on a hard-hitting note, asking people to choose sides. And if they can’t, he has a solution for it, too. “You’re either for or against. And if you can’t decide who you like more in your split or who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this — Fu*k you.” Eminem had previously dissed Trump in a track called ‘Campaign Trail‘, nearly a year ago.
They don’t call him the ‘Rap God’ for nothing.
Here are some Twitter reactions:
