Marshall Bruce “Eminem” Mathers III did not hold back when he let his hatred towards President Donald Trump known to the 2017 Reading Festival audience in Glasgow, Scotland on Aug. 26, Saturday. Now back in the United States, the Detroit rapper took to Twitter to slam the former “The Celebrity Apprentice” host.
“Back to Detroit but I won’t be forgetting the UK anytime soon,” Eminem tweeted on Aug. 28, Monday. He added the hashtags #mightactuallymovetoscotland and #facktrump.
In October 2016, Eminem dropped a song against Trump titled “Campaign Speech.” When the “Rap God” rapper took the stage at the 2017 Reading Festival, he led the 90,000 people in the audience in a chant against the U.S. President.
Eminem told the 2017 Reading Festival crowd that he did not want to cause any controversy but he just could not stand Trump, Entertainment Weekly quoted the Detroit rapper as saying. The rapper’s set started after the chant against Trump.
“Scotland, you might have to be our new home,” Detroit Metro Times quoted Eminem as saying to the crowd in between songs. He added that things were not going well in the U.S. and he wanted to take the moment to slam Trump.
Whether or not Eminem is including a song to criticize Trump in his upcoming ninth studio album has yet to be seen. The album is expected to be released before 2018.
Eminem’s most recent studio album was “The Marshall Mathers LP 2.” Released on Nov. 5, 2013, the album contained 16 songs including “Rap God,” “Headlights” featuring Nate Ruess, “Love Game” featuring Kendrick Lamar and “The Monster” featuring Rihanna.
