Eminem Roasts Donald Trump And All His Supporters During BET Music Awards
It seems like roasting Donald Trump is all the rage these days, and why the f*** not?
The man’s a caricature, a parody of everything excessive and vulgar about one of the world’s truly great countries, and an absolute loudmouth hell-bent on publicity and power. You know it, I know it, and apparently, Eminem knows it too.
The famously controversial hip-hop star is rumoured to be dropping a new LP in the near future and that’d probably make a great deal of sense.
There’s been a bit of activity in his corner, he’s been playing live shows and making appearances around the joint. In fact, his performance at Hip Hop’s BET awards is probably a pretty good sign that there’s definitely something on the horizon for old Marshall Mathers. He’s certainly in promotional mode.
With that in mind, it’s probably a good thing the now-veteran lyric-spitter knows a thing or two about getting some attention of his own.
After his BET Awards performance he’s certainly getting that. He absolutely roasted the sh** out of the tremendously unpopular US President in a four minute tirade (free-styled of course) that touched on all the ways Trump irks him – and pretty much everyone else.
Along the way Slim Shady dropped bombs that lit up Trump’s North Korea dramas, his response to Hurricane Katrina and NFL players dropping the knee.
“All of these horrible tragedies and he’s bored,” he spat, Would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers.”
He even name-checked Steve Bannon, Colin Kaepernick and President Obama.
“We better give Obama props,” he rapped, ‘cuz what we got in office now is a kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust.”
I dunno, it’s not exactly Shady’s finest line, but it’s a roast. What it does do is draw a stark comparison between the love Obama seemed to receive with the never-ending circus of melodrama and polarizing arrogance Trump exudes.
Finally, Shady delivered a middle finger and a ‘f*** you’ to any of his fans who support Trump before announcing that Americans ‘love their military but they f***ing hate Trump.’ Bloody edgy sh** that.
Best guesses at the moment are predicting a November 17 release date for the new Slim Shady album. That’s despite the fact an Interscope rep told XXL that ‘nothing has been announced or confirmed yet.’
