In what is perhaps the fiercest and the most exhaustive attack against President Donald Trump in hip-hop, US rapper Eminem has issued an ultimatum to his fans – support either him or Trump – in a scorching rap played at Tuesday night’s BET awards.
In the four-minute freestyle, filmed in a car park in Detroit and titled “The Storm”, which went viral immediately as it was posted, Eminem called out the US president on issues including his support for white supremacists and his penchant for tweeting.

The star rapper also said he “came to stomp” on the president, calling him a “racist 94-year-old grandpa” and accusing him of disrespecting the military.
In the rap, he refers to the US president as “a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust”.
In a reference to the orange superhero the Thing from the Fantastic Four comic books, he raps: “Racism’s the only thing he’s Fantastic Four / Cause that’s how he gets his fucking rocks off and he’s orange.”
Eminem also issued an ultimatum to his fans who might be supporters of the president.
And 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
Tuesday night’s video wasn’t the rapper’s first attack on Trump.
During the 2016 presidential election, Eminem called Trump a “loose cannon” who doesn’t have to answer to anyone in a nearly 8-minute flow titled, “Campaign Speech.”
