Eminem’s incendiary and uncompromising anti-Trump cypher is a massive social media hit.
The Detroit rapper’s cypher, “The Storm,” has been swirling on Facebook and trending on Twitter since he let it fly Tuesday night for the BET Hip-Hop Awards, earning plaudits from musicians and athletes.
In it, Eminem hits Trump with a flurry of combinations, calling him a “spoiled little brat,” “stingy,” “a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust” and a whole lot more.
NBA great LeBron James and controversial football star, Colin Kaepernick and recording artist Snoop Dogg, J. Cole and T-Pain are among the many who’ve tweeted their appreciation of Eminem’s efforts.
There’s another strong theme coming from all this: how will Trump respond in the morning? It’s a good assumption he won’t do it with a rhyme. Read some of the best reactions below.
Racism is the only thing he’s Fantastic 4(fantastic for), cause that’s how he gets his rock off, he’s orange. Sheesh @Eminem!! —-?——#United pic.twitter.com/wcL28BCWpy

Not totally sure how rap battles work, but I believe Eminem is now the President of the United States of America.
