Listen to Eminem’s Political BET Freestyle

The five-minute long freestyle features bars about Donald Trump, and voices his support for Colin Kaepernick.

Eminem’s BET Cypher freestyle has the whole country talking. The politically charged bars have raised nuanced conversations about protests and privilege, Em’s career and his place in contemporary hip-hop. The five-minute long freestyle features bars about Donald Trump, and voices his support for Colin Kaepernick.

Em also mentions several pressing current events: NFL protests, the Las Vegas shooting, the devastation of Puerto Rico. Entitled “The Storm,” this freestyle comes a year after Eminem’s previous political tirade “Campaign Speech,” and is built on the back of his myriad moments critiquing George W. Bush.
