Eminem’s Donald Trump diss was full of memorable lyrics.
Last night, Eminem delivered a barrage in which he ripped into President Trump without mercy, holding nothing back as he vented on wax for over four-minutes. Titled “The Storm,” Eminem’s cypher has caused the internet to whip into a frenzy, with some hip-hop camps praising Em’s onslaught as a courageous cultural move, with others feeling the whole thing veered into corny territory. Regardless of where you stand, Em’s verse proved that Slim Shady can still make people think, talk, and cringe in equal measure; after all, he’s been doing it since “My Name Is” dropped back in the late nineties. Surprisingly, Trump has yet to fire off a response of his own, but it’s only a matter of time before the POTUS labels Em as washed up, or worse, SAD.
It’s a strange turn of events, especially considering Trump once endorsed Eminem for president at the “Shady National Convention.” Who would have anticipated that things would have gone so left? Either way, Em’s been on his “Fuck Trump” tip for a minute, and it wouldn’t be surprising if we got a “Mosh 2.0” on his upcoming album, that may or may not be dropping on November 17th. In the mean time, dive into “The Storm,” and catch some of the most scathing Trump-bashes from last night’s BET Cypher.
1. But we better give Obama props
‘Cause what we got in office now’s a kamikaze
That’ll prob’ly 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
2. Racism’s the only thing he’s fantastic for
‘Cause that’s how he gets his fucking rocks off and he’s orange
3. But this is his form of distraction
Plus, he gets an enormous reaction
When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that in
-stead 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
4. Same shit that he tormented Hillary for and he slandered
Then does it more From his endorsement of Bannon
Support for 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
5. 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
6. Fuck that! This is for Colin, ball up a fist!
And keep that shit balled like Donald the bitch!
7. 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:
