Listen To Eminem Finally Talk About His BET Trump Freestyle On Shade 45
Eminem recently made an appearance on Shade 45 to discuss his collaborative track with Beyonce, “Walk On Water,” the current state of rap music, and of, course, his surprise Donald Trump freestyle during the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
When asked about how angry he was during his freestyle, Eminem responded: “I was and am still extremely angry. I can’t stand that motherfu**er.”
He also spoke about how Trump has yet to respond to him, adding: “I feel like he’s not paying attention to me. I was kinda waiting for him to say something, and for some reason, he didn’t say anything.”
The Detroit rapper also briefly discussed his forthcoming highly-anticipated album Revival, where he revealed Rick Rubin produced three or four songs on the project, as well as “worked on a lot of the album” as an executive producer. He also said Dr. Dre “mixed a few records” for the album too.
Following the release of Eminem’s anti-Trump freestyle fans of the rapper who also happen to be supporters of Trump took to Reddit to address their grievances with the rapper.
“I watched the cypher and obviously heard the ending yet I will still listen to Eminem’s music because he is incredibly talented and I can’t wait to hear what he comes out with next,” the creator of the thread, iReactionV2, wrote. “I’m just curious if there is anyone else who falls in this category or those who don’t. What are your thoughts about his cypher and his opinions.”
“I guess I fall into this category…I mean I really only ‘support’ trump because my family does. (Hell even they only voted for the guy because he’s republican, they also think he is an idiot),” one user wrote. “But at the end of the day, I don’t think it’s possible for me to give any less of a f**k about politics. I don’t listen to Eminem for politics. I let the news do that. I listen to Em for catchy beats and insane raps, as any normal human being should. If you love politics that’s fine, but let’s not have it overtake someone’s career.”
