During the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards that took place on Tuesday night, rapper Eminem unleashed maybe the harshest and most brutal rap attack on United States president Donald Trump. During an explosive 4.5-minute freestyle, the famous rapper called Trump a lot of names, like “a racist grandpa”. At the moment, the White House is still to issue any official comment regarding Eminem’s initiative.
It’s interesting that the Detroit rapper has slammed Donald Trump’s supporters a few times before too. The first time it happened was back in 2016, during a 9-minute speech called Campaign Speech. The second time was during Big Sean’s song No Favors. However, this time, he went even further and criticized the president himself, in his characteristic way.

Towards the end of the freestyle, Eminem addressed his fans who are also Trump supporters by saying that they can either be for or against what he has done. Also, that he wants to help them decide which side to choose through this disstrack. Eminem first revealed the freestyle on his Twitter account and it’s called The Storm.
Fans of the rapper should know that he is getting ready for the release of his eight album, and this track comes in anticipation of that moment. In the freestyle, Eminem talks about Trump’s comments after the Charlottesville white supremacist rally and his patriotism after attacking various athletes and Senator John McCain. Finally, the end of the freestyle talks about Colin Kaepernick and it’s kind of a tribute to him.
He is a former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers who made waves after refusing to stand up for the national anthem as a way of protesting against police brutality, last fall. Among others, Eminem called Trump “a kamikaze who will cause a nuclear war”, made fun of his orange skin and even raised his middle finger.
