Eminem's five-minute assault on Donald Trump during the BET Hip Hop Awards was the talk of the rap world this week.
Shady didn't just go off on the President. He also told his Stans that if they were still rocking with Trump they couldn't rock with him.
While his bars impressed rappers like J. Cole and Snoop Dogg, Vince Staples had a more negative reaction.
“It was trash,” he said of the Freestyle in an interview with Pitchfork. “He can do better. If I said, ‘This is for Colin/Ball up a fist/And keep it balled up/Like Donald the bitch,’ they would be like, ‘Get this nigga out of here.’”When asked by Pitchfork if he liked anything about the freestyle, he responded: “My favorite thing about the Eminem freestyle is the wall of dark-skinned black people behind him."
Last night, Staples jumped on Twitter and said he was just joking -- as he has a tendency to do. However, he still wasn't exactly supporting Em's performance.
