Earlier today, DJ Khaled revealed that Eminem would be returning the scene with a cypher on Tuesday night’s airing of the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards. Following this news, anticipation instantly skyrocketed amongst fans as they were eager to hear what the Detroit legend had in stored for us, and he definitely didn’t disappoint.
Being the only rapper to go acapella, Em decided to use his platform to blast President Donald Trump, and that he did well. Addressing everything from the NFL protest & Puerto Rico to the border wall & racism, Eminem delivers a ferocious, 4-minute freestyle that any anti-Trump supporter will appreciate.
“But we better give Obama props, ’cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze that’ll probably 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 until the bombing stops,” Eminem rapped. “Intensity’s heightened, tensions are rising/Trump, when it comes to giving a shit, you’re as stingy as I am/Except when it comes to having the balls to go against me, you hide ’em/’Cause you don’t got the fuckin’ nuts, like an empty asylum.”
Eminem also had a little message for any one of his fans who supported Donald Trump as well. “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: Fuck you,” he spits.
In addition to all that, Em also referenced Colin Kaepernick, the white supremacist march in Charlottesville, and Trump’s feud with Senator John McCain to name a few. It’s safe to say he definitely had a lot to get off his chest Tuesday night.
This cypher from Eminem comes on the heels of rumors that Em has a new album on the way for us. In fact, rumors are swirling that we might be getting it on November 17th, but we’ll have to wait to confirm that at a later date. But the fact that Eminem even did this cypher should indicate that he’s prepping his comeback soon. So stay tuned.
