Lyrics To Eminem’s “The Storm”It’s the calm before the storm right here.Wait, how was I gonna start this off?I forgot… oh, yeahThat’s an awfully hot coffee potShould I drop it on Donald Trump? Probably notBut that’s all I got ’til I come up with a solid plotGot a plan and now I gotta hatch itLike a damn Apache with a tomahawkImma walk inside a mosque on RamadanAnd say a prayer that every time Melania talksShe gets a mou… Ahh, Imma stopBut we better give Obama props‘Cause what we got in office now’s a kamikazeThat’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaustAnd while the drama popsAnd he waits for s**t to quiet down, he’ll just gas his plane up and fly around ’til the bombing stopsIntensities heightened, tensions are risin’Trump, when it comes to giving a s**t, you’re stingy as I amExcept when it comes to having the b***s to go against me, you hide ’em‘Cause you don’t got the f**king n**s like an empty asylumRacism’s the only thing he’s fantastic for‘Cause that’s how he gets his f**king rocks off and he’s orangeYeah, sick tanThat’s why he wants us to disband‘Cause he cannot withstandThe fact we’re not afraid of TrumpF**k walkin’ on egg shells, I came to stompThat’s why he keeps screamin’ ‘Drain the swamp’‘Cause he’s in quicksandIt’s like we take a step forwards, then backwardsBut this is his form of distractionPlus, he gets an enormous reactionWhen he attacks the NFL so we focus on thatInstead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for NevadaAll these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would ratherCause a Twitter storm with the PackersThen says he wants to lower our taxesThen who’s gonna pay for his extravagant tripsBack and forth with his fam to his golf resorts and his mansions?Same s**t that he tormented Hillary for and he slanderedThen does it moreFrom his endorsement of BannonSupport for the KlansmenTiki torches in hand for the soldier that’s blackAnd comes home from IraqAnd is still told to go back to AfricaFork and a dagger in this racist 94-year-old grandpaWho keeps ignoring our past historical, deplorable factorsNow if you’re a black athlete, you’re a spoiled little brat forTryina use your platform or your statureTo try to give those a voice who don’t have oneHe says, ‘You’re spittin’ in the face of vets who fought for us, you bastards!’Unless you’re a POW who’s tortured and battered‘Cause to him you’re zeros‘Cause he don’t like his war heroes capturedThat’s not disrespecting the militaryF**k that! This is for Colin, ball up a fist!And keep that s**t balled like Donald the b**ch!‘He’s gonna get rid of all immigrants!’‘He’s gonna build that thang up taller than this!’Well, if he does build it, I hope it’s rock solid with bricks‘Cause like him in politics, I’m using all of his tricks‘Cause I’m throwin’ that piece of s**t against the wall ’til it sticksAnd any fan of mine who’s a supporter of hisI’m drawing in the sand a line: you’re either for or againstAnd if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re splitOn who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this:F**k you!The rest of America stand upWe love our military, and we love our countryBut we f**king hate Trump” In the time since the BET Hip Hop Awards last night on Tuesday, Eminem’s controversial rap cypher has gone viral. The video is currently making its rounds on social media and the news, racking up over 5 million views on YouTube in just a few short hours and eliciting responses from a whole slew of celebrities ranging from LeBron James, Ellen Degeneres, T-Pain, and many more. In the four-minute freestyle rap, the Detroit rapper addresses the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, with the freestyle rap running down a list of criticisms ranging from immigration, corruption, hypocrisy, white supremacy, the NFL, gun control, environmental disasters, and much more.Trump’s Crazy Campaign Made MSNBC’s Katy Tur Start Listening To Phish AgainThe title of Eminem’s video, “The Storm,” and its opening line, “It’s the calm before the storm right here,” is a direct reference to President Trump’s cryptic and widely questioned comments earlier in the week, when he announced to the press corp during a dinner for military commanders and their spouses, “You guys know what this represents? Maybe it’s the calm before the storm.” Following this opening line, Eminem holds nothing back, laying out a litany of harsh criticisms against the president and his supporters at every chance.Watch Donald Trump Frown Through This French Marching Band’s Tribute To Daft PunkDuring the video’s four-and-a-half-minute span, Eminem namedrops references to Colin Kaepernick (“This is for Colin/ball up a fist”), Barack Obama (“we better give Obama props”), Hillary Clinton (“Same s**t that he tormented Hillary for and he slandered/Then does it more”), and Stephen K. Bannon (“From his endorsement of Bannon/Support for the Klansmen”) as well as indirectly alluding to Trump’s beef with Vietnam war hero, Senator John McCain (“[Trump] says, ‘You’re spittin’ in the face of vets who fought for us, you bastards!’/Unless you’re a POW who’s tortured and battered/cause to him you’re zeroes/cause he don’t like his war heroes captured”).While the cypher itself is packed full of direct jabs against the president, Eminem is no stranger to controversy nor is he a stranger to openly criticizing the president—in recent months, the rapper has led “Fuck Trump” chants at shows and gone on the record that he “can’t stand” the president. Despite this clear stance now, there was a point in time that Trump and Eminem were on more positive terms. In 2004, Trump appeared at Eminem’s Shady Convention, where he endorsed the rapper, citing, “I know a winner when I see one, and Donald Trump is telling you right now: Slim Shady is a winner! He’s got brains, he’s got guts, and he’s got Donald Trump’s vote!”Since the inauguration earlier this year, many mainstream artists have spoken out against President Trump, albeit in more sanitized terms. One of the reasons Eminem’s cypher has gained so much attention is his concise articulation that he is not afraid of losing fans by firing back at Trump. “The Storm” closes with a clear ultimatum that Eminem directs toward his own fanbase: “And 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 with this,” before giving the middle finger to the camera. This comes ahead of the final closing lines of his freestyle where he clarifies that he loves both the military and the country, but that he “f**king hate Trump.”You can watch Eminem’s harsh criticisms of Donald Trump from the BET Hip Hop Awards, plus you can read the lyrics of “The Storm” below.
Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model runner-up Sarah Kennedy will be the special guest at the Donegal Youth Council LGBT “Chalk It up” event this Saturday 8th March.Sarah KennedyThe event runs from 2-4pm in the Diamond in Donegal town and is in support of LGBT Stand Up week, a national campaign which is co-ordinated by Belong To.The Chalk It Up events were developed here locally by the BreakOUT Donegal LGBT support service, who have organised events over the last two years, and give people the opportunity to write positive chalk messages of support for young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in prominent locations. Breakout will also be holding a Chalk It Up event this year in Letterkenny at the Market Square this Saturday from 2-4pm. The Stand Up campaign was launched nationally in 2012 and aims to raise awareness and tackle homophobia and homophobic bullying, transphobia and transphobic bullying and help to create positive understanding and support for LGBT people.Next week schools and youth services across the country will organise fun and educational activities to encourage young people to take part in the event.Portnoo native Sarah Kennedy, says she is really happy to be able to support the Stand Up campaign. “I know only too well what bullying can do from my own personal experiences so if I can help out in anyway in this particular campaign to encourage others to take a stand and stop bullying then I am only delighted to be involved”.Donegal Youth Councilors identified homophobic bullying as a major issue to work on this year and they are also working to involve their schools in LGBT awareness projects. Seven secondary schools in the county have already agreed to run a Chalk It Up event on the 14th of March. Chairperson of the Donegal Regional group of the Donegal Youth Council Sharon McNern explains why the Youth Council wanted to show their support for the campaign this year.“As stand up week was approaching, we felt that this was a topic that we needed to raise awareness on as homophobic bullying is a continuing problem. We felt we needed to let LGBT young people in the county know that they have support and are not alone. Come on down on Saturday to see us and write your positive message of support.”Donegal Youth Council is funded by Donegal County Council, HSE Health Promotion and the Dept of Children and Youth Affairs and is co-ordinated at local level by the Donegal Youth Service.Stand Up LGBT Awareness runs all the week from 10th-14th March.
