Rapper Eminem waged war on President Donald Trump during a video released at Tuesday night's BET Hip Hop Awards.

Eminem, in an extremely emotional display of anger and frustration, vilified the president in a four-minute freestyle rap titled, "The Storm."

The video for the cypher is the No. 1 trending video on YouTube with over 4 million views just since Tuesday night.

What did Eminem say?

The rapper, who's real name is Marshall Mathers, is well known for his stoic rap takedowns. He was visibly emotional in this video, and waffled between breathing heavily and angrily shouting into the camera.

Eminem, who effectively built up his career by rapping about controversial topics in abrasive, vulgar ways, took his trademark rhetoric down several notches for this performance, delivering a more measured takedown of Trump than what he would, perhaps, have done in previous years.

During his cypher, he addresses the NFL player protests, gun control, disaster relief, Trump's treatment of former POW Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), and more.
