Rapper Eminem alleges in his new album "Kamikaze" he was visited by the Secret Service over his distaste for the president at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards, Slate.com reported.
Lyrics to 'The Ringer,' one of the 13 tracks on the album, suggest President Donald Trump – often a target of the rapper – is "too scared" to engage the liberal rapper because "he will lyrically get murdered."
"But I think it's workin'
These verses are makin' him a wee bit nervous
And he's too scared to answer me with words
'Cause he knows that he will lyrically get murdered
But I know at least he's heard it
'Cause Agent Orange just sent the Secret Service
To meet in person
To see if I really think of hurtin' him
Or ask if I'm linked to terrorists"
Eminem was reportedly also visited by the Secret Service in 2003 after lyrics to his song "We Are American" were censored for a death threat against former President George W. Bush.
"I don't rap for dead presidents – I'd rather see the president [dead]," the song went, with the last word censored in the officially released version of the song.
While President Trump has not publicly acknowledged Eminem's lyric jabs, Donald Trump Jr. did float the hashtag "#WillTheRealLoserPleaseStandUp" in a tweet last December.
