On Tuesday night, Eminem ripped President Trump a new asshole during the BET Hip-Hop Awards, delivering a blistering pre-recorded freestyle from his home in Detroit.
Don't take my word for it, though, press play below.
Freddie Gibbs, Saweetie & Earl Sweatshirt: Best of the Week
Freddie Gibbs, Saweetie, and Earl Sweatshirt, among others, had the best new songs on Audiomack this week.
"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 / The rest of America stand up / We love our military and we love our country but we fucking hate Trump"
Immediately following Em's performance, social media was ablaze with hot takes and overreactions, but anyone who has followed the career of one Slim Shady knows this isn't the first time (oh, hey, Tipper Gore) he has attacked a political figure in his rhymes. In fact, it isn't even the first time this year.
Earlier this week, when rumors began to spread that Eminem's new full-length LP is due November 17, the response from our readers was a mixed bag. While many fans are excited about Em's ninth studio album—the first since 2013's The Marshall Mathers LP 2—just as many, if not more, have long since grown tired of his shtick and his radio-ready, mainstream collaborations with pop-appealing acts like Rihanna, Pink and Skylar Grey.
We know Eminem can channel the passion, intensity, and dynamic gusto on display in his BET Hip-Hop Awards freestyle into album material. Now, we patiently wait to see if there's more on the way.
