American rapper Eminem is back, ladies and gents!

The Mockingbird singer is back with a freestyle rap and a passionate mission to take down US president Donald Trump.

In the four-minute rap, filmed in a car park in Detroit and titled The Storm, Eminem called out Trump on racism, and issues including his behaviour towards North Korea, his support for white supremacists and his penchant for tweeting.

In the rap he refers to the US president as “a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust”. In a reference to the orange superhero the Thing from the Fantastic Four comic books, he raps, “Racism’s the only thing he’s Fantastic Four / Cause that’s how he gets his fucking rocks off and he’s orange.”

However, this is not the first time Slim Shady has spoken against the president. Previously, the rapper criticised Trump as he waded into the NFL national anthem protest saga and threw his support behind the player Colin Kaepernick, who was first to take a knee and who inspired widespread protests that have extended outside of football and enraged Trump.

Kaepernick now showed his support with the rapper and responded to the rap on Twitter.

Oscar winner ended the rap with a demand for his fans to take a side, and rapped, “Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line, you’re either for or against, and if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for it for you with this.”

Is this errand boy-turned-rapper Pakistan’s answer to Eminem?

The performance comes as Eminem’s next album is reportedly nearing release, with his producer Mr Porter announcing last week, “We are done”.

The president is yet to respond.

Soon after the release of the freestyle, Twitter exploded!
