Rapper versus president: This is nuclear war

By Lucien Crowder

You can, as this publication usually does, communicate the danger of nuclear war with a certain sense of reserve. Austerity, even. Or you can communicate like the rapper Eminem, who gets on the mic and spits it like this:

…what we got in office now’s

a kamikaze that’ll probably cause

a nuclear holocaust

and while the drama pops

and he waits for shit to quiet down

he’ll just gas his plane up and fly around

till the bombing stops

That’s just one stanza in a withering appraisal of the president that Slim Shady delivered via video at the BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday. Outside this stanza, the subject matter isn’t nuclear. The rhetoric and delivery are radioactive.
