Some of Eminem’s long time fan-base may not have appreciated his recent anti-Trump sentiments. But the Detroit rapper is standing his ground.
“I [hesitate] to say [I have] hatred in my heart for him, but it’s serious contempt. I do not like the guy,” he said of Trump, in a lengthy new interview with Billboard with Paul Rosenberg.
Em’s blistering BET Awards freestyle (titled “The Storm”) eviscerated the president’s temperament, addressed social justice and broached political issues. On the “Chloraseptic” remix, the rapper referenced cutting his fan base in half due to the freestyle’s divided response. Whether the fans stay or go, Eminem feels he’s on the right side of history.
“At the end of the day, if I did lose half my fan base, then so be it, because I feel like I stood up for what was right and I’m on the right side of this,” he said. “I don’t see how somebody could be middle class, busting their ass every single day, paycheck to paycheck, who thinks that that f—— billionaire is gonna help you.”
Em and Rosenberg also discussed their humble beginnings to Slim’s 9th studio album Revival. You can read the full Eminem interview here.
