Guess who’s back?
Ghost is back.
Tell a friend…
Guess who’s back guess who’s back guess who’s back guess– Aight Im done. Anyways the only reason why Im still up in this shit is cuz Hex keeps writin shit that wont fit on his little tumblr page or whatever…n cuz Im a good friend n cuz he happens to write some brilliant shit nahmean… So even tho I hate his damn guts I still approve of his words n thoughts on shit. Anyways… in case you been tryna see how the title of this piece makes any actual sense n aint jussa weak ass forced attempt to incorporate the best known lyric bout Eminem not written or spat by Eminem hisself into this shit…lemme break it down for yall naysayers. Trump’s shit is white AmeriKKKa. Trump’s shit is using his platform to insult n attack muthafuckas who happen to disagree wit his “policies” n overall existence on the planet in general. Trump’s shit is using his power/influence to divide. When the legendary Marshall Bruce Cornelius Augustus Mathers III appeared on the screen during the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards son made it clear he wasnt there to offer some unbiased cornball perspective on shit n encourage muthafuckas to hold hands n respect each others differences of opinions on this coward ass racist misogynistic pathological liar ass insecure bald tangerine-hued infantile delusional senile narcissistic piece of shit. He wasnt planted there to help calm the negroes down n spit a couple hot sixteens… He wasnt there for anything else other than to break his foot off in Don Cheeto’s ass. That might really be the only thing son had on his itinerary that day forreal b…jus “Break foot off in Trump’s ass…n take rest of day off”. Anyways Ima let Hex tell it since he so eloquent n wise n shit…
I know Eminem.
I know his manager, the new Def Jam chief, Paul Rosenberg, too.
I’ve been friends with both of them for a long fucking time.
Neither of them know that I’m writing this shit, and they probably could care less.
Both of those muthafuckas are already rich.
My words can’t help or hurt them.
Keep that in mind as you read this piece.
Unless you’re dead, you know about Eminem’s freestyle during a BET “Cypher’ segment on the BET Hip Hop Awards Tuesday night, October 10th.
He Ethered Trump.
No Vaseline’d him.
Hit Trump Up.
Em Used To Love Him.
Found the Bitch In Him.
Marshall Gave Trump the Long Kiss Goodnight.
Malcolm X’d him.
Closed his Casket.
Most neophyte emcees privileged enough to participate in the BET Cyphers used their allotted time during their respective cyphers (usually shared time with at least four other rappers in varying stages of popularity) to promote themselves, as they should. For most it’s the largest platform they’ve ever had so they attempted to stick out, to be remembered, to show that they had arrived.
Well, Eminem had arrived almost 20 years ago.
He was given his own cipher, just him. In a parking lot at an undisclosed location in Detroit with about 10 black guys behind him.
Lounging against some older cars with the headlights on, I saw the current holder of the Best Rapper Alive title, Royce Da 5″9, his brother Kid Vishis, a ferocious emcee in his own right, new Griselda / Shady Records signees Conway The Machine and Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher, and battle rapper MarvWon. Not exactly a motley crew. Em had arranged an audiences of serious emcees for his performance.
First of all, let me say I love Parking Lot Em. When you see that guy in a parking structure or abandoned building you know what time it is.
Time for BARS.
Something to send other emcees back to their notebooks or smart phones shaking their heads and muttering to themselves,
totally flummoxed. “How does that white boy DO that?”
This time it was a little different.
While DJ Premier supplied the beat for the other cyphers, Em started to do his thing, a cappella. It was clear to me from the get-go that whatever Marshall Mathers was about to say he wanted heard loud and clear. The silence and absence of Preemo instantly had my attention. Marshall didn’t fuck around. From the opening line Eminem went straight at Trump’s neck. “That’s an awfully hot / coffee pot / should I drop it on Donald Trump / probably not”. It was more a rage-filled rant than a freestyle performance. Em stopped periodically as if to gather his thoughts, pacing back and forth like a caged feral animal, and then spit out another grouping of hatred filled syllables, venom dripping off every word. He needed to get this shit OUT. It was like he was full of poison and this was the only chance he had to expell it.
Muthafucka made me proud.
He touched on everything most sane people dislike about Trump, from his stupid fucking tan to the probability that he’s going to start a nuclear war while he flies high above the fray eating KFC and groping stewardesses. Eminem even weighed in on the government response to the natural disaster in Puerto Rico, the NFL anthem / flag controvetsy, and Colin Kaepernick. And even though it was a political diatribe the bars were still there. “Racism is the only THING he’s fantastic for (Fantastic 4) / because that’s how he gets his fucking rocks off and he’s orange…”
He preceeded that with this caveat which ended up being a premonition. “…except when it comes to having the balls to go against me he hides them / ’cause he ain’t got the nuts, like an empty asylum.”
He continued the roast fest, turning Trump slowly on the spit making sure that not an inch of him was uncooked. Em bounced Trump’s head off The Wall and called him a “BITCH”.
He also did the industry unthinkable; he instructed any of his fans that were also Trump supporters to see themselves out of the realm of Eminem fandom. Told them to get the fuck out, gave them the finger and said “Fuck you”.
Needless to say, Em was pissed.
Em had basically said everything I’ve ever sent to Trump in a tweets, which somehow kept ending up deleted.
You couldn’t delete this shit tho. This Eminem freestyle went beyond viral, it was on every news ticker. It transcended the internet, which Marshall “BROKE”, like Kim Kardashian’s naked ass on the cover of “PAPER” magazine a few years ago.
I personally saw Em’s bars on CNN, TMZ, local news in Detroit and all the fuck over.
He was everywhere, one of the 5 most recognizable people in the whole world, calling the Leader of
The Free World ( ‘Free World’. That’s funny on a whole different level now. Watch “8 MILE”. ) on the carpet, and calling him a “BITCH”.
And he’s white.
Everyone waited on Trump’s response with baited breath. He’s gotta say SOMETHING. Em handed him his hat on national TV and called him a “BITCH”.
We waited for Trump’s rebuttal.
The self-proclaimed “COUNTER PUNCHER” stayed mum.
I guess Eminem was right.
Donald Trump really doesn’t have the nuts to go at him. Em is a soothsayer.
I mean, when Snoop Dogg made a video dissing Trump he responded, pretty quickly. When female sports anchor and fellow Detroiter Jemele Hill called Trump a white supremacist after his debacle dealing with Charlottesville, he called for her firing. Shit, he’s still lashing out at Jemele. But at the time of this writing, he hasn’t tweeted one single cross word about Eminem.
Well, maybe Trump is doing president shit and he doesn’t have time to deal with rappers.
I mean, Snoop is a rapper. Trump had a lot to say about him.
Trump thought Jemele Hill’s attack was unwarranted and a sneak attack, and he went after her. Went so far as to call for ESPN to fire her (they didn’t, although they did do some bullshit later. Sort of a makeup call for President Tang. )
Still nothing for Eminem.
Well, let me see…what differentiates Snoop Dogg and Jemele Hill from Marshall Mathers
Is it…naw it can’t be that…is it…MELANIN?
Snoop and Jemele have it, and Em lacks it.
Therefore Snoop Dogg and Jemele have black skin, while Slim Shady”s skin is white.
Jemele is also female, which accounts for why Trump is still lashing out at here. You know he’s got a problem with strong women. A strong BLACK woman? Trump is probably sending Seal Team
Six to her house right now.
Clear sailing, not a Trump-made cloud in the sky.
Well shit, maybe Marshall has something on Trump. Maybe he has pictures of him frolicking with teenage Thai lady-boys, dumping pitchers of dead Russian hooker urine over his head. Shit I dunno.
Maybe it’s the video of Trump introducing a 2004 MTV Slim Shady performance. He rides Eminem’s nuts pretty hard in that clip. In all fairness that’s probably what the skit called for.
I have no idea what or how Eminem turned the counter -puncher into the coward-puncher. Em shut up the loudest mouth in any room.
I don’t know what Marshall has on Trump, but I think I know how he muted him.
It’s not that Trump doesn’t believe in “white on white crime”. He routinely bashes political opponents that he shares a
skin shade with.
Eminem used white privilege to dismantle white privilege. It’s like he made a black hole that started to suck itself into itself. It was like a giant snake eating it’s own tail. It was crazy, this white guy was on every station deriding the muthafucka who is the very symbol of the white privilege that affords Em the chance to be on all these platforms.
Think about it, Trump is a draft-dodging idiot with five kids by three different women and a history of sexual allegations,but who happens to be rich. There’s an audio /visual tape of him basically confirming that he sexually assaults women.
This oaf became president.
Imagine a black guy with the same exact pedigree becoming president.
Eminem knows that and so does
Dumb Donald. Trump knew that if he got into a back and forth with Eminem then his white cloak (white sheet) of white privilege might unravel. Em was already tugging at it’s strings.
Trump figured if he stayed quiet then white privilege would be safe. He could keep basking in white privilege without ever admitting it exists.
His strategy has boomeranged on him. His silence proves not only the existence of white privilege which obviously makes Eminem exempt from attack, it also validates the critics who call Trump a racist bastard. He tweets at black people who insult him until his fingers bleed, but Marshall gives him both barrels unprovoked and not a peep.
Although Trump remained quiet others roared. Social media exploded with memes and taunts directed towards 45. The accolades and words of appreciation from Hip Hop luminaries flowed in via social media. Snoop, T-Pain, J. Cole, amongst others. They all expressed gratitude that Em had said what they all had thought about our behated Twittander and Twief at one time or the other. It was a lovefest, but slowly but surely here came the backlash.
I’ll call it a blacklash.
Psuedo “black power” dashiki wearing muthafuckas everywhere decided that since Em was melanin-challenged he didn’t have the right to speak for us. Since I’m talking to my people I’m going to keep it funky. Excuse my language. “N***a, I think you missed the fucking point. The white boy wasn’t speaking FOR us or TO us. He was talking to Trump, his supporters, and white people everywhere…”
This is where I’m informed that the cypher took place on BET, any white viewership would likely be at a minimum…
“Dog, don’t u think Eminem and Paul knew that shit was going to get picked up by various national news outlets? He wasn’t speaking to the BET audience, that shit was for the world’s consumption.”
Right about here is where I’m usually told ‘that Em freestyle wasn’t even dope.’
“Fam, it wasn’t meant to be dope, my n***a. That was like an angry-ass spoken word piece. It seemed to me that Em would rather have been just talking. You think that if he wanted to Em-A-Fucking-Nem couldn’t write, what, 8 bars to ummm, a More Bounce sample or whatever the fuck Preemo was playing. You think Em couldn’t drop some shit that would blow your wig back?”
Then I get ‘Em is a racist. Remember that tape he made in the early 90’s.’
Yup, I remember the tape Marshall made saying the dreaded ‘N’ word. He made a mistake. X-Clan was going hard for black people at the time, the 5% Nation was all the rage and Em was 100 white devils. He went against the grain. Truthfully do you REALLY think Eminem is a racist? Really?
Then a muthafucka will tell me,
‘O, Em wants to get political now.’
I guess you never heard ‘WHITE AMERICA’ from 2002’s THE EMINEM SHOW and 2004’s “MOSH’ from ENCORE.
‘Well, now he finally wants to speak on Trump’
I guess you haven’t heard ‘CAMPAIGN SPEECH’ from last year.
‘He’s got an album coming out. This is all a publicity stunt. He needed the airtime. Controversy sells’
Really? Eminem needs airtime?
Controversy sells. Yeah, he did it to sell more records.
That’s why he told about 30-50% of his own fans fuck them and gave them the finger.
That’s why he did that, to bolster album sales. He also wanted to enamor himself to black fans. You know, because we buy so many records.
“Well, we have our own rappers.”
Let me know when Jay Z, Chuck D, Kendrick, J. Cole or any other black person can say the kind of shit against a white president that Eminem said
during that cypher and have it get played on a bunch of different networks, including cable news within an hour. The last time that happened was over 10 years ago, when Kanye went off-prompter and told the truth about George Bush. (Damn, I miss that Kanye) They’re not making that mistake again.
Em is using white privilege to kill white privilege and you muthafuckas are mad.
You get mad because the white man is fucking over us and you get mad when a white guy tries to help us.
It’s not like he’s blatantly pandering to us, he comes from white trash, used to live in a trailer. He’s not only speaking about black issues, he’s speaking about human issues, like Trump’s dumb-ass starting a nuclear war.
Melanin doesn’t attract radiation. That’s not just a black problem. that’s a human problem.
A selfish idiot has the nuclear codes. That should be a sobering thought to everyone, not just blacks.
Look, Trump is trying to shut down any dissenting voices he hears. He is actively trying to undermine and eventually dismantle the First Amendment. Dig, the cavalry, the Buffalo Soldiers, Harriet Tubman or whoever the fuck you’re expecting ain’t coming to help us. We gotta speak up and express our thoughts while it’s still legal to speak AND to think. If a loud voice like Marshall’s speaks and his words are simpatico with ours we should help to trumpet them, not drown them out.
There’s no time for that petty shit my n***a. In any war you’re gonna need allies. Eminem showed he’s an ally. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Trump is definitely the enemy and he definitely isn’t on Eminem’s Xmas card list.
We’re all in the trenches together against this orange asshole.
I don’t give a fuck what color the guy next to me is as long as he’s fighting the good fight.
Eminem shot a metaphorical scud missile at the White House and I’m here for it.
Salute to Em and anyone else of any color that’s down to speak against this retard.
Fuck rap and that cypher, this is real life.
We’re behind enemy lines, dog.
