Rapper Eminem seems to be on a mission to draw the president’s attention. After bashing President Trump multiple times, Eminem has just produced a new album which includes insulting songs about Trump, but his temper tantrum has not helped the album sell.
Eminem released his latest album “Revival,” which includes songs focusing on Trump, but his record sales are not as good as his previous releases, as Independent Journal Review notes.
“Eminem is expected to sell 250,000 to 260,000 units, sale plus streaming, with 180,000 to 190,000 of those being in pure album sales,” IJR reports, the low numbers reminiscent of the sales for his 1999 “Slim Shady LP.” The predictions are paltry compared to other, previous album sales, which reached 792,000 units within the first week.
Slate, a left-leaning site, wrote in a tweet that the album is “terrible.”

Eminem initially showed his disdain for the Commander-In-Chief by releasing a four-and-a-half minute rap video in October. Lyrics from the song include:
Racism is the only thing he’s fantastic for because that’s how he gets his f**kin rocks off and he’s orange. Yeah, sick tan. That’s why he wants us to disband.
Because he cannot withstand the fact were not afraid of Trump. Walking on eggshells, I came to stomp. That’s why he keeps screaming ‘drain the swamp,’ because he’s in quicksand.
He says he wants to lower our taxes. Then who’s going to pay for his extravagant trips back and forth with his fam to his golf resorts and his mansions.
In spite of his efforts, Eminem has yet to draw a reaction from President Trump, much to his dismay. Eminem reportedly has rap lines ready to use, if the president ever responds to the rappers’ prodding.
