Eminem has never had a smooth relationship with American political officials, and it doesn’t sound as if that pattern is set to change now that Donald Trump sits in the Oval Office.
Rapping on “No Favors” from Big Sean’s new album I Decided, Em had this to say: “I’m anti, can’t no government handle a commando/ Your man don’t want it, Trump’s a bitch/ I’ll make his whole brand go under.”
Otherwise, it’s a not a particularly political song, but “Trump’s a bitch” is a pretty unequivocal stance to have when it comes to the most powerful person in the country.
The latest dig follows what Em said about the new president on “Campaign Speech.”
“Run the faucet, I’mma dunk / A bunch of Trump supporters underwater… A fuckin’ loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button / Who doesn’t have to answer to no one — great idea!”
No love lost, then.
Eminem’s fellow Detroit native Big Sean took to Twitter yesterday to thank the Hip Hop legend for hopping on the track: “.@eminem No Favors feels like back to back homeruns, you fuckin destroyed this verse! Thank you for blessing the album w/ this! #Detroit”

Trump has proven in the past that he’s not afraid to take aim at celebrities on Twitter, including Meryl Streep, so we won’t be surprised if he ends up dropping a rant about how Eminem is “over-rated” and “sad!”
Always one to split public opinion, reaction to Em’s verse has been mixed.
Listen to the verse above and make your mind up for yourself.
