Out of the game for some time, Marshall Bruce Mathers III, also known as the rapper Eminem, is still feeling his oats.
With success of a rumored upcoming album, “Success,” likely hanging in the balance, the increasingly irrelevant rapper is threatening to destroy President Donald Trump’s brand.
Jumping on the coattails of Trump’s massive appeal, Mathers targeted the president “in a profanity-laced verse on ‘No Favors’ — a song off fellow Detroit rapper Big Sean’s ‘I Decided’ album, which is out Friday,” CNN reported.
“Trump’s a b**ch, I’ll make his whole brand go under,” Mathers rapped.

As CNN noted, this is not the first time the rapper has gone after Trump:
Eminem, who is no stranger to political discourse, also slammed Trump in October in “Campaign Speech” — an explosive eight-minute freestyle, where the rapper shares passionate political commentary about the 2016 election and slams Trump supporters:
“But you should be afraid of this dang candidate/ You say Trump don’t kiss a** like a puppet/ ‘Cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the fundin’ and that’s what you wanted / A f***** loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button/ Who doesn’t have to answer to no one.”
The network didn’t mention that Mathers also fantasized about sexually assaulting conservative firebrand Ann Coulter.
“And f**k Ann Coulter with a Klan poster,” he raps. “With a lamp post, door handle, shutter. A damn bolt cutter, a sandal, a can opener, a candle, rubber. Piano, a flannel, sucker, some hand soap, butter. A banjo and manhole cover.”
Big Sean, who rapped about killing Trump in a freestyle performance Thursday on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 show, was quick to give his boy props for boosting $ales.

Social media users dispensed disdain in equal parts for Mathers and CNN… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
@CNN Eminem is a washed up clown. Nobody cares

@CNN It must be super embarrassing working for CNN. Working 24/7 PROMOTING hate and anger trying to divide the country

@CNN How? Eminem ‘s 15 minutes expired, like five years ago.

@CNN Eminem has not been relevant since the early 2000’s. He’s avoided the spotlight at every chance. Obviously he’s a liberal shill.

@CNN These celebrities are so cute with their pronouncements. Enjoy your audits, Marshall 😉

@CNN Eminem must think he is pretty important. I thought his songs disrespected women?
