Eminem drops sly comic book reference in freestyle rap diss against Donald Trump

Eminem’s Donald Trump diss track “The Storm” drops a sly reference that any comic book fan can appreciate.

Guess who’s back? Back again? Shady’s-

Yeah, you know the rest. And you and all your friends have likely heard by now of “The Storm,” Detroit-born rapper Eminem’s 4:34 freestyle cypher/rash-session of President Donald Trump which aired Tuesday night during the BET Hip-Hop Awards.

Many Slim Shady fans cite the cypher (named such in response to Trump’s “calm before the storm” statement) as a substantive return to form, as the rapper hasn’t sounded quite so hungry, angry and raw in some time.

Among such cold bars as:

Except when it comes to having the balls to go against me, you hide ’em

‘Cause you don’t got the f-----g nuts like an empty asylum.

And:

Tiki torches in hand for the soldier that’s black

And comes home from Iraq

And is still told to go back to Africa.

Em dropped in a clever line about ever-lovin’ blue-eyed Benjamin Grimm that all comic book fans can appreciate:

Racism’s the only Thing he’s Fantastic Four

‘Cause that’s how he gets his f-----g rocks off and he’s orange.

A clobberin’ rhyme if we’ve ever heard one.
