Editorial credit: Christian Bertrand /

  • Eminem took President Donald Trump to task in a freestyle that aired during the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards on Tuesday. “When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that / Instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada,” Em raps in the pre-taped segment. “All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather / Cause a twitter storm with the Packers.” The rapper goes on to call Trump ”a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust” and question his endorsement of former chief strategist Steve Bannon, as well as his attacks on the NFL. “Now, if you’re a black athlete / You’re a spoiled little brat” Em spits. “For tryna use your platform or your stature / To try to give those a voice who don’t have one.”
