Guess who’s back? Back again? Shady’s-
Yeah, you know the rest. And you and all your friends have likely heard by now of “The Storm,” Detroit-born rapper Eminem’s 4:34 freestyle cypher/rash-session of President Donald Trump which aired Tuesday night during the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
Many Slim Shady fans cite the cypher (named such in response to Trump’s “calm before the storm” statement) as a substantive return to form, as the rapper hasn’t sounded quite so hungry, angry and raw in some time.
Among such cold bars as:
Except when it comes to having the balls to go against me, you hide ’em
‘Cause you don’t got the f-----g nuts like an empty asylum.
Tiki torches in hand for the soldier that’s black
And comes home from Iraq
And is still told to go back to Africa.
Em dropped in a clever line about ever-lovin’ blue-eyed Benjamin Grimm that all comic book fans can appreciate:
Racism’s the only Thing he’s Fantastic Four
‘Cause that’s how he gets his f-----g rocks off and he’s orange.
A clobberin’ rhyme if we’ve ever heard one.
