Eminem Destroys Donald Trump For 5 Minutes In A Devastating BET Cypher (Video)
Beginning in 2009, the MC cypher has taken center stage at the BET Hip Hop Awards. Exciting groupings of rappers, often tied by region and label affiliation or simply raw talent, freestyle on one of the mainstream Rap world’s biggest platforms.
Eminem is a cornerstone of the Hip Hop Awards cypher. As with his days before linking with Dr. Dre and subsequent super-stardom, Marshall Mathers demonstrates a joy, finesse, and advanced technicality in his impromptu raps. Part stand-up comedian, part cultural observer, Em’ is funny, cutting, and quite precise with the mic device. In ’09, he brought the house down with Mos Def (nka Yasiin Bey) and Black Thought. In 2011, Em’ returned with his renovated Shady Records roster of Slaughterhouse (including Bad Meets Evil partner Royce 5’9″) and Yelawolf.
For the first time ever for any artist, Eminem appeared solo for a freestyle cypher verse at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards. The MC who brought Battle Rap to Hollywood with 8 Mile needed no beat to bring a dazzling lyrical display in the living rooms of millions upon millions with this performance. And, in a stunning turn, he devoted his entire verse to destroying Donald Trump. The acapella verse comes at a time when rumors are swirling that Em’s next album may arrive in less than six weeks. Hits Daily Double, a credible veteran site for sales data and news, reported that the follow-up to 2013’s Marshall Mathers LP2 will be released on November 17. It would mark the Detroit, Michigan native’s ninth solo LP.
In a busy 2017 for Em’, including adding Westside Gunn and Conway The Machine to Shady Records, paying Rap respect to Mobb Deep’s Prodigy, and appearing in The Defiant Ones, he dropped a standout feature on “No Favors” by Big Sean.
Earlier this week, Rapsody smashed another early released cypher, declaring herself the best MC out.
