Eminem scolded and praised after bashing Trump and his supporters in rap

Eminem-who's been sporadically working since his last album dropped in 2013-has released a new freestyle rap that tears into everything related to Donald Trump. It was a slick looking gimmick to introduce Eminem's satellite radio channel and featured Trump seeming to throw his support behind Eminem in a bid for the presidency.

Eminem held little back in his return to the BET Hip Hop Awards in the show's 2017 cypher.

"We better give Obama props/Because what we got in office now is a kamikaze/That will probably cause a nuclear holocaust/And while the drama pops and he waits for sh*t to quiet down/He'll just gas his plane up and fly around until the bombing stops", Eminem raps. The video rips the President on a number of issues, including Trump's focus on the National Football League instead of the hurricane devastation in Puerto Rico and gun control in Las Vegas. "And he's bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers".

During the rap he also gives his fans an ultimatum and tells them they must choose between him and the president.

Eminem pledged solidarity with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose protests against racism during the United States national anthem have triggered an intensifying row as Trump demands that athletes stand for the flag. "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".

The rapper has made a series of personal attacks on Trump, as well as angrily criticising his political decisions.

It's not the first time Eminem has openly gone on the offensive against the president.
