“It’s a bit odd that he’s admitting to having prepared heavily to take on a 70 year old politician. Probably not the best look. So much for freestyle. #WillTheRealLoserPleaseStandUp,” Trump Jr. tweeted, referencing Eminem’s song “The Real Slim Shady.”

The remark from Trump Jr. stems from a recent comment Eminem made during an interview with Vulture, where the Detroit rapper declared that he had lines ready for Trump “if he says something about me.”
“I’m trying to get a message out there about him. I want our country to be great too, I want it to be the best it can be, but it’s not going to be that with him in charge,” he said.
In another recent interview with Interview magazine Eminem talked about how his BET freestyle “The Storm” came together.
“The original idea was for me to go to the BET Awards and do it acapella onstage,” Eminem said while speaking with Elton John. “I went home that same day and wrote it all, but then at the last minute, plans got switched around and we filmed it in Detroit.”
The Detroit rapper also revealed that the setup of his performance was largely inspired by the single cover art for Public Enemy‘s song “You’re Gonna Get Yours.”
“One of the things we were trying to mimic was Public Enemy’s ‘You’re Gonna Get Yours’ cover,” he said. “I don’t know if anybody got that, but that’s kind of the feel that we were going for.”
