(CNN)When Eminem let loose on President Donald Trump at the BET Hip Hop Awards some time back, he did something that couple of artists have actually done prior to: He directed his ire towards his own fans, a few of whom are Trump fans.
“At the end of the day, if I did lose half my fan base, then so be it, due to the fact that I seem like I defended exactly what was best and I’m on the best side of this,” he informed Billboard in an interview published Thursday . “I do not see how someone might be middle class, busting their a– each day, income to income, who believes that f —— billionaire is going to assist you.”
When the renowned host knocked the President in an explosive 4.5-minute cypher freestyle, “The Storm,” this line directed at his own fans especially stuck out since artists frequently prevent upseting their advocates:
“And any fan of mine who’s an advocate of his, I’m attracting the sand a line, you’re either for or versus, and if you cannot choose who you like more and you’re divided on who you must stand next to, I’ll do it for it for you with this. F– you,” Eminem rapped, raising his middle finger straight at his own fans.
Trump and the White House have actually not reacted to Eminem’s freestyle.
When Eminem launched his politically themed album, “Revival,” in December, it was likewise loaded with attacks on the President.
“When I (put out “The Storm”), I felt that everyone who was with him at that point does not like my music anyhow,” he informed Billboard. “I get the contrast with the non-political-correctness, however besides that, (Trump and I) are polar revers.”
However, a few of the Detroit rap artist’s conservative fans did switch on him.
He resolved this advancement in the “Chloraseptic” remix , where he slams mumble rap artists– a brand-new subgenre in hip-hop– and boasts that he still outsells them, in spite of losing half of his fans: “Then I decided/ Went at tan-face (a label for Trump) and almost cut my m —– f —– fan base in half/ And still outsold you.”
