EMINEM Takes BET Hip Hop Awards 2017 By Storm

“This is the calm before the storm,” Eminem announces as the video begins.

Tuesday night, at the BET Hip Hop Awards, Eminem released a pre-recorded freestyle video bashing President Donald Trump.

He’s rapping a capella from a Detroit parking lot during the four and a half minute video titled: The Storm.

He challenges issues on immigration, corruption, white supremacy, the NFL, gun control, environmental disasters and more.

“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,” Eminem raps.

This is not the first time Eminem has rapped about his hate towards Trump.

He has slammed the President previously in the nine-minute 2016 freestyle “Campaign Speech” and in Big Sean’s “No Favors.”

He says later in the freestyle: “Now, if you’re a black athlete/You’re a spoiled little brat for trying to use your platform or your stature/To try to give those a voice who don’t have one.”

“This is for Colin, ball up a fist,” he says. “And keep that s–t balled like Donald the B—h.”

Many celebrities and NFL players have tweeted back to Eminem supporting his viral video.

“I appreciate you @Eminem,” Kaepernick tweeted back, along with a fist emoji.

He ends the rap with the verses: “Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his/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,” he says as he flips off the camera.

He then raises his fist above his head: “The rest of America stand up/We love our military, and we love our country”

The video comes to a close with him shouting: “But we hate Trump!”

There have been more than 8 million views on YouTube since it was posted Tuesday.
