Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, unleashed a four-and-a-half minute rap about Mr Trump in a BET Hip Hop Awards cypher – when a group of rappers freestyle one after the other – as he marked his return to the event after six years.
The Real Slim Shady rapper praised former President Barack Obama as he branded Mr Trump a “kamikaze which will probably cause a nuclear holocaust”.
He also referenced NFL player Colin Kaepernick who refused to stand for the national anthem at a game in protest at the police brutality, and slammed his delayed visit to hurricane ravaged Puerto Rico.
*Warning strong language*

He rapped: “Plus he gets an enormous reaction/ When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that and/ Instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada/ All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored or would rather/ Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers.”
He also claimed racism was the only thing Mr Trump is good at before mocking his “orange” complexion, rapping: “Racism’s the only thing he’s Fantastic 4 cause that’s how he gets his rock off, he’s orange.”
He finished by encouraging American’s to speak out against the President: “The rest of America stand up. We love our military and we love our country but we f****** hate Trump.”
The epic freestyle quickly went viral with stars including Kaepernick praising the rapper, while J. Cole hailed it as “potent”.
