CAIRO – 2 Septemper 2017: Rap superstar Eminem ended his stint at the Leeds Reading Festival in the UK by sharing harsh words at U.S. President Donald Trump on August 27.
Eminem convinced the crowd, numbering at almost 100,000 people to shout swears at Trump, after Eminem gave a speech about the tense political situation currently happening at the U.S. The crowd cheered and clapped along with Eminem, near unanimously sharing his dislike of the President.
The rapper spoke of the current political climate leading to incidents such as the Charlottesville neo-nazi march and Trump's current term in office. According to NME, Eminem was quoted as saying;
"I don’t know if anybody here has been paying attention to what the fuck is going on back in our country, back in the States, but it’s kind of making me not want to be there right now. This is the part of the show where I don’t cause a bunch of controversy by naming names and shit like that, but this motherfucker Trump, I cannot stand him.”
It is the first time he played at the Leeds Festival since 2013, and performed covers of songs by artists such as Lil Wayne and Drake alongside his classics such as ' The Real Slim Shady' and 'Stan'.
As if this energetic return to form wasn't enough, Eminem is anticipated to be releasing a new album later this year.
