Eminem really hates Donald Trump.

In a four-minute-long rap shot in a car park in Detroit, a hooded Eminem, also known as Marshall Mathers, launched an expletive-laden tirade against Trump while a group of young men watched on from the sidelines. The video was made for yesterday’s (Oct. 10) BET Hip Hop Awards.

Displaying a keen awareness of current affairs, Eminem calls out Trump for being a “kamikaze” who will probably cause a “nuclear holocaust.” He also accuses the US president of distracting people’s attention from domestic crises like Puerto Rico or gun control by “causing a Twitter storm with the Packers” instead, referring to the furore surrounding some NFL players’ decision to kneel before the American flag in protest of police violence.

“Now if you’re a black athlete you’re a spoiled little brat for trying to use your platform and your stature,” he raps.

It’s not the first time Eminem has openly gone on the offensive against the president. At shows in the UK this year, Eminem wore a “Fack Trump” t-shirt and led chants of “Fuck Trump” at a music festival.

Eminem also attacks Trump’s use of public funds to pay for his frequent trips to golf resorts, as well as Trump’s support for white supremacists by rhyming “Bannon” with “klansmen.”

The most biting criticism from Eminem to Trump, however, might be that the president is “orange.”

“Yeah, sick tan,” says Mathers.
