Eminem absolutely takes Trump apart in brutal new freestyle

Eminem Trump

The legendary Eminem may be 44, but it appears he’s lost none of his fire.

He’s released a stunning four minute long freestyle for the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards which has spread like wildfire across social media and for good reason: it’s a no-holds barred, no punches-pulled brutal attack on Donald Trump.

Sure, Trump’s an easy target who we’re all used to hearing being criticised - but there’s something particularly visceral about seeing Eminem launch a sustained, angry attack with such force.

He even calls on his fans to decide whether they’re either on his side, or Trump’s, signing off the performance, recorded in his home city of Detroit earlier this week, with the line: “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!”

He talks about nuclear weapons, the NFL protests, Steve Bannon, Puerto Rico, Nevada, Hillary and pretty much everything that the ‘racist 94-year-old grandpa’ has done before and during office.

Take a look here:

Here are the lyrics in full - and head to genius.com to see the story behind each one of the lines.

This the calm before the storm right here
Wait, how was I gonna start this off? I forgot
Oh, yeah

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 fucking nuts like an empty asylum

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
Fuck walkin’ on egg shells, 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

Fuck 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
