Rapper Eminem released a blistering anti-Trump freestyle rap on Tuesday night during the BET Hip-Hop Awards. In a pre-taped video, Eminem rapped about how he hates President Donald Trump, supports people who protest anthems, and how he wants his Trump-supporting fans to pick between either their love of Eminem or their love of Trump.
According to the gossip website "Just Jared," the freestyle session has been titled "The Storm." "The Storm" follows Eminem's nearly eight-minute freestyle "Campaign Speech," which was released about two weeks before the election last year. "Campaign Speech" included several jabs at then-candidate Donald Trump.
Since it was published, "The Storm" has been the number one trending video on YouTube.

Here are some of the lyrics:
On the ending of the Obama administration:
"But we better give Obama props/'Cause what we got in office now's a kamikaze/That'll prob'ly cause a nuclear holocaust"
Racism's the only Thing he's Fantastic Four/'Cause that's how he gets his f---ing rocks off and he's orange/Yeah, sick tan
Eminem's theory on the "drain the swamp" phrase:
F--k walkin' on egg shells, I came to stomp/That's why he keeps screamin' "drain the swamp!"/'Cause he's in quicksand
On his support for athletes who protest during the Star-Spangled Banner:
Now if you're a black athlete, you're a spoiled little brat for/Tryna use your platform or your stature/To try to give those a voice who don't have one
On his fans who may support Trump: (Eminem is a Michigan native, which narrowly went for Trump in 2016.)
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:/F--k you!
Eminem ended the song by saying that the rest of Americans, who respect their military and their country, need to "stand up" about how "(they) f--king hate Trump."
President Trump has not yet commented on the song, although many were hoping he'd do so during one of his early-morning Twitter sessions.
