Eminem did not shy away from lobbing shots at President Donald Trump in “Kamikaze,” and media personality Charlamagne Tha God approves of the way the Michigan native went about doing so.
Eminem called out President Trump in his track “The Ringer.” The rapper describes the president as “nervous” in his verses and he alleges that Trump is scared to respond because he knows that he will be in for a verbal beatdown.
This is not the first time that Eminem has gone after the current president, but for Charlamagne, this latest attack from the rapper is better than his previous ones.
During a recent interview with Esquire.com, Charlamagne Tha God said that he liked the way Eminem called out the president in “The Ringer” because it seemed “way more organic.” The 40-year-old author and social media influencer added that he feels like Eminem’s attacks on the president were more forced in the “Revival” album and in the BET cypher.
Charlamagne also thinks Eminem is talking more about Trump due in part to his artistic tendencies. Because Eminem is an artist, it is natural for him to talk about current happenings and issues which involve the president and his policies.
“The Breakfast Club” host also sees no issue with Eminem attacking Trump, saying “I love when white people use their privilege to combat prejudice.” Still, Charlamagne made it clear that he will not refrain from criticizing lyrics he deems as “just OK or borderline wack” even if he does agree with the message they are conveying.
Charlamagne himself has talked about Trump before. During an interview earlier this year with Stephen Colbert, Charlamagne likened the Trump administration to a reality show. Charlamagne Tha God does see some positives as well from the recent happenings, such as people realizing that they need to stick together and others showing their true selves.
