The sports world couldn’t help but notice when Eminem dropped a lyrical hammer on Donald Trump.
The rap star rips the U.S. President, his policies and his supporters in a freestyle diss track, which premiered Tuesday night during the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards.
Trump has been critical of the protests against police brutality and racial inequality that some NFL players have participated in this season during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Eminem fired back at the POTUS in a big way.
Listen to Eminem’s full track below. Warning: it contains some expletives.
Eminem also praises Colin Kapernick in the track for starting the athletes’ protest movement by kneeling during the national anthem, and the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback thanked him for the track Tuesday night on Twitter.
LeBron James also reacted to Eminem’s takedown of Trump, using Twitter to highlight a bar he particularly liked.
Sports, music and politics can make the strangest of bedfellows.
