I know I’m not in the minority when I say that when Marshall Mathers speaks, I listen. He’s like a deranged father whose been a consistent voice throughout my adolescence–whether my buddies and I were trying to get hyped on our way to a party we weren’t invited to or I was pretending to be Michael Jordan in my driveway shooting hoops, Eminem’s voice seemed to always be the soundtrack to some of my fondest memories.
Well, he has a new message to share, and its about the 45th President of the United States of America.
A crowd of 35,000 people battled horrific weather at Glasgow, Scotland’s Bellahouston Park to witness the top-selling hip hop artist of all-time perform a 33-song set encompassing classics such as My Name Is, The Real Slim Shady and Stan. Before the 44-year-old burst into his 2002 hit White America wearing a shirt that said “Fack Trump,” he took the time to skewer Donny.
“Scotland, you might have to be our new home because right now shit ain’t going so well in the States. I just wanna take this moment out right now and say motherfuck Donald Trump.”
Emimen has been particularly outspoken about his opinions of Trump, evident in his verse off fellow Detroit rapper Big Sean’s song No Favors, which comes out Friday.
“I’m anti, can’t no government handle a commando/ Your man don’t want it, Trump’s a bitch I’ll make his whole brand go under.”
And, back in October, Eminem spewed vitriol at Trump in a mind-blowing eight minute freestyle.
“But you should be afraid of this dang candidate/ You say Trump don’t kiss ass like a puppet/ ‘Cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the fundin’ and that’s what you wanted / A fucking loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button/ Who doesn’t have to answer to no one.”
Picturing Eminem rocking an “I’m With Her” t-shirt makes my adolescent self scratch its virgin head.
The answer is yes. Yes it is.
