The “shady” diatribe on Donald Trump’s “shoddy” performance as a president was as political as it was creative, packing double entendres, carefully worded innuendos and dense internal rhyming; all “culminating” in social media flooding in support of the “fulminating” outpour. The Eminem freestyle cypher ended on a rather inharmonious note with the Rap God politely suggesting his Donald Trump supporting fans to “fuck off”; “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 it for you with this. Fuck you.”
Eminem freestyle “storm” had many celebrities “bask” in its scurrilous exuberance, including the likes of Snoop Dogg, Ellen DeGeneres, Colin Kaepernick and Congressman Keith Ellison.
The verbal attack seemingly has encouraged many others to follow suit, with Seth Meyers taking his stand with his cute stingy retort “I am Seth and I am here to say if you like Trump then go away” to demarcate “the” divide- you’re either for Trump or for me:
The freestyle touched many sensitive issues- the likes of racism and NFL national anthem protest saga, and most celebrities “loved the way Trump was fried” as Lebron James came out in support with his tweet and Ellen with hers as did Bella Hadid.
The most relevant message came from Congressman Keith Ellison:
He says- “Eminem, and many artists, make a cultural contribution. We need to embed in our culture that voting is an obligation, a responsibility…what Eminem is doing is staying true to his art”, whilst mentioning that music remained the crux of the issue during the black segregation of the 60’s and helped induce public conscience, something that Eminem is reinforcing in a manner that is, though hostile, but still relevant.
