Eminem already hasn’t a sound history with politics and especially Trump. In his past raps, he has already shed strident remarks on the Trump and his daughter Ivanka. This time he let loose with a blast at the National Rifle Association. The singer performed the controversial rap at a music award show Sunday in Southern California. He accused the gun rights lobbyists of loving “their guns more than our children.”
Eminem performed the new lyrics on stage in Inglewood at iHeartRadio Music Awards. He was introduced on the stage by Alex Moscou. Alex is a survivor of the mass shooting last month at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.
Alex said that he and his friends got tired of the verbal empathy which most politicians and popular celebrities sent. He said that their duty is to make necessary changes in order to obviate such mishaps. Eminem took a direct hit at NRA:
This whole country is going nuts, and the NRA is in our way
They’re responsible for this whole production
They hold the strings, they control the puppet
And they threaten to take donor bucks
So they know the government won’t do nothing and no one’s budging
Gun owners clutching their loaded weapons
They love their guns more than our children.
Eminem has already attacked Trump by mentioning him in one of his rap songs, “kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust.” In an interview, Eminem said that the president actually boils his blood. Trump had suggested that the minimum age to buy a military assault-style weapon like the one used in Parkland must be increased from 18 to 21 but there was not a single mention of this in the White House presented proposal for gun-control.
