In a four-minute performance rapper says of the president: Racisms the only thing hes famous for
The rapper Eminem has issued an ultimatum to his fans support either him or Donald Trump in a scorching rap played at Tuesday nights BET awards.
In the four-minute freestyle, filmed in a car park in Detroit and titled The Storm, Eminem called out the US president on issues including his behaviour towards North Korea, his support for white supremacists and his penchant for tweeting.
In the rap he refers to the US president as a kamikaze thatll probably cause a nuclear holocaust. In a reference to the orange superhero the Thing from the Fantastic Four comic books, he raps: Racisms the only thing hes Fantastic Four / Cause thats how he gets his fucking rocks off and hes orange.
Eminem, who has criticised Trump in the past, also waded into the NFL national anthem protest saga and threw his support behind the player Colin Kaepernick, who was first to take a knee and who inspired widespread protests that have extended outside of football and enraged Trump.
Kaepernick was quick to respond to the rap on Twitter.
