On Tuesday evening, at the BET Hip Hop Awards, rapper Eminem unleashed a 4-minute long freestyle against President Donald Trump, calling him anything from “Donald the b—-,” to “racist grandpa”.
Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, has posted on Twitter the full lyrics on the rapping he performed at the Awards night, under the name “Storm”.

In the verses, Eminem calls Donald Trump – among other things – “a kamikaze that’s probably gonna cause a nuclear holocaust”. “Racism is the only thing he’s fantastic for”, he adds.
“And says he wants to lower our taxes. Then who’s gonna pay for his extravagant trips back and forth with his family to his golf resorts and his mansions?”
In the end, Eminem is addressing his fans that are also Trump supporters and tells them it’s time to pick which side they want to be on.
“Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line, you’re either for or against”, Eminem raps, “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 it for you with this. F— you!”
This would not be the first time that Mathers has spoken (or, better said, rapped) against Donald trump. Last year, during the elections, he had a 9-minute long performance called “Campaign Speech”. He was also featured in Big Sean’s “No Favors”, where he again spoke against Trump’s supporters.
Numerous celebrities has reacted positively to Eminem’s “Storm”, praising and even quoting him.
