Eminem is making it crystal clear who has his vote in the 2020 presidential election. A new campaign ad for former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris features the rapper's classic 2002 hit, "Lose Yourself," and Eminem himself shared it on Instagram.
The black-and-white ad features various people across the country, from a skateboarder to a firefighter and a woman from the medical industry putting on her mask, while "Lose Yourself" plays in the background. Biden and Harris are later shown walking, as well as a banner flying in support of them. The lyrics aptly read, "Look/ If you had / One shot / Or one opportunity / To seize everything you ever wanted / In one moment / Would you capture it / Or just let it slip?"
Eminem captioned the video, "One opportunity... #Vote."
"Consider me a dangerous man, but you should be afraid of this dang candidate," he raps. "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**kin' loose cannon who's blunt with his hand on the button/ Who doesn't have to answer to no one -- great idea!"
"What we got in office now is a kamikaze that'll probably cause a nuclear holocaust / and while the drama pops he waits for sh*t to quiet down he'll just gas his plane up and fly around until the bombing stops," he rapped.
"Any fan of mine who's a supporter of his / I’m drawing in the sand a line—you’re either for or against," he also rapped. "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: f**k you."
