Eminem, often hailed as one of the greatest rappers of all time, took the music world by storm when he released his tenth studio album, “Kamikaze,” without prior announcement this past Friday. Following the disappointing release of 2017’s, “Revival,” many fans were hoping for a return to form from the Detroit MC.
However, because Eminem referred to him as “Agent Orange” on the album, Donald Trump has officially banned “Kamikaze” from being sold or listened to in the United States.
Who would’ve known a line Eminem didn’t even write would come back to bite him?
Trump doubled down on his decision in an interview with Fox News. “I know he tried to roast me during his BET freestyle but damn, this was just lazy,” he said. “This is just the first of many steps we, as a society, can take to get this garbage rapper out of people’s ears.”
Different celebrities have also weighed in on the decision. Famous white person Martha Stewart tweeted, “Eminem is the most washed up rapper of all time, and I host a cooking show with Snoop Dogg.”
The full lyric in question reads thusly:
Cause Agent Orange just sent the Secret Service
To meet in person to see if I really think of hurtin’ him
Or ask if I’m linked to terrorists
“Like there’s such a stunning lack of creativity here, not that he even possessed any to begin with,” Trump said. “This decision is less about his personal quarrel with me and more about getting this never-has-been off the airwaves.”
When asked about the decision, Eminem was furious.
“I’m tired of government officials trying to take my culture away from me,” he said. “All these years of avoiding using the n-word in my raps and this is what I get?”
Eminem’s new teased album will reportedly be three times as long as “Kamikaze” and will be solely about his hatred of Trump.
