    Back from obscurity like a phoenix rising from ashes, rapper Eminem has joined “the resistance” movement opposing US President Donald Trump with a new cypher dubbed “The Storm” that debuted at the BET Hip-Hop Awards Tuesday night.

    Eminem’s most divisive line occurred near the end of the verse, "Any fan of mine who is a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line – you’re either for or against – and if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this: F*ck you."

    In other parts of the freestyle performance, filmed in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, Slim Shady displays a grasp of the topical – coupled with some self-deprecation – that is typical of his rhymes:

    “Intensities heighten. Tensions are rising. Trump, when it comes to giving a sh*t, you’re as stingy as I am … racism is the only thing he’s fantastic for … it’s like we take a step forward then backwards, but this is his form of distraction. Plus he gets an enormous reaction when he attacks the NFL so we focus on that instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada. All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored. Would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers,” referring to an NFL team.

    ​As of Wednesday afternoon, the cypher was the number one trending video on YouTube and had amassed 8.6 million views on the video sharing site.

    ​The most bombastic part of the rap came early on, when the artist referred to the US president as "a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust."

    ​Eminem’s debut album, "Infinite," came out in 1996 and his last studio album, "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" dropped in 2013.
