Eminem blasts Donald Trump in freestyle rap at BET Hip-Hop Awards

The rap superstar held nothing back in criticizing the president on Tuesday.

— -- Eminem, in typical fashion, held nothing back in a blistering freestyle rap attack on President Donald Trump aired on Tuesday night during the BET Hip-Hop Awards.

The video had 1.5 million views and was the No. 1 trending video on YouTube within hours of airing on BET.

The 44-year-old rapper also tweeted a link to the video, titled "The Storm," which had nearly 130,000 likes and 70,000 retweets within six hours -- not to mention 4,700 comments.

Eminem cited Trump's recklessness in dealing with North Korea, saying the president would "probably cause a nuclear holocaust."

"We better give Obama props 'cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust while the drama pops, and he waits for s--- to quiet down, he'll just gas his plane up and fly around till the bombing stops," Eminem freestyles in the video.

Eminem references the president's propensity for using Twitter -- something the commander in chief will likely use to attack the rapper before long.

The rapper has hardly been silent in his criticism of Trump in the past. He released a track titled "Campaign Speech" in October 2016 which also ripped then-candidate Trump, saying America should "be afraid of this dang candidate."
