Eminem delivers anti-Trump freestyle at BET Hip Hop Awards

Whenever he’s appeared in public over the last year, Eminem has generally arrived with the odd pointed word for Donald Trump. Last year’s ‘Campaign Speech’ called the then presidential candidate a “loose cannon”, while on Big Sean’s ‘No Favors’ he calls the now president a “bitch”. But in an a capella freestyle for last night’s BET Hip Hop Awards he pulled no punches, devoting a full four and a half minutes to his new foe.

Opening with a reference to Trump’s recent ominous “the calm before the storm” comment, made at a photocall ahead of a dinner with top military commanders, the rapper goes on to attack Trump over his careless attitude to nuclear war, immigration, racism, the Mexican border, NFL protests, Twitter, corruption, gun control and more.

The recording of the performance is somewhat diminished by the censorship of the f-word, but there’s plenty of power left in what remains. Watch the full freestyle here:
