Published Oct 11, 2017The 2017 BET Awards were handed out last night (October 10) during a ceremony hosted by Leslie Jones, but Eminem managed to steal the spotlight for a little while.
The Detroit rapper delivered a biting freestyle, spitting bars about Donald Trump and shitting on the president for his policies on, well, just about everything. Em skewers Trump's racist takes on immigration and ongoing NFL protests — pointing out his ability to create media frenzies to distract attention from causes like the Puerto Rico relief effort and gun control in Nevada.
Colin Kaepernick gets some strong support from the rapper over the course of the cypher, and the football player took to social media last night to make his appreciation for Eminem known.
The freestyle finally closes out with Eminem "drawing in the sand a line" between his fans and Trump supporters, with a powerful middle finger for anyone who's still on the fence.
Watch the politically charged freestyle below.
