The veteran rapper made clear that his forward statements were no mistake. 

"F**k walking on egg shells I came to stomp."

The blistering rap continued, Eminem stopping only to add style and emphasis to his words.

Not holding anything back the hooded rapper sent a message to Trump supporters who also identify as his fans.  

"Any fan of mine, who's a supporter of his, I'm drawing in the sand a line, you're either for or against. And if you can't decide who you like more and you're split on who you should stand beside, I'll do it for you, f**k you. " 

Eminem concluded his rap with a final line, a call to action to all Americans,

"The rest of America stand up, we love our military and we love our country but we F@$*ing hate Trump." 

Following the cypher, fans and critics of the long-time artist took to social media to share their thoughts.
