Eminem just went in on President Donald Trump dropping a freestyle at The BET Hip-Hop Awards that ripped the leader of the free world to shreds.
Marshall Mathers has never been one to shy away from spitting bars, and dropping truth bombs over the United States of America, but his latest freestyle is directed at the man at the helm of the Oval Office.
Eminem’s verbal sparring just went as nuclear as Trump’s little spat with North Korean despot, Kim Jong-un:
Beginning with the ‘clam before the storm’ – a potential nod to the 45th’s latest threat to North Korea – Eminem then unleashes some inconvenient opinions about his presidency which will have pissed off the half of America who un-buried their heads from the sand to watch the BET Hip-Hop Awards last night, no doubt.
The highlights reel includes accusations of racism, with Mathers claiming: ‘Racism’s the only thing he’s fantastic for’.
The rapper added: ‘I’m throwing that piece of sh*t against the wall til it sticks.’
Eminem isn’t the only public figure who has spoken out against some of Trump’s most controversial policies, including the so-called Travel Ban, restricting women’s fertility rights, failing to condemn White Nationalists, and that blasted wall down on the Mexican border.
No doubt we’ll be hearing the clapback on @realDonaldTrump’s Twitter soon.

Eminem ended his freestyle with: ‘We love our country and we love our military, but we f*cking hate Trump.’
Meanwhile, the rapper is preparing to drop his latest album, celebrating the 15th anniversary of fourth album The Eminem Show, and writing music for new movie Bodied.
