Eminem has plenty to say about the NRA.
The 45-year-old rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, targeted the organization during his iHeartRadio performance Sunday night in Inglewood, Calif.
Time Magazine reported Monday Eminem added a freestyle verse to his song “ Nowhere Fast” where he accused gun owners of “ loving their guns more than our children. ”
The news magazine added the performance was introduced by Alex Moscou, a survivor of the fatal school shooting in Parkland, Florida where 17 students died.
Moscou said he and other survivors were “ tired of hearing politicians sending their thoughts and prayers to us, and doing nothing to make the necessary changes to prevent this tragedy from happening again. ”
When Eminem took to the stage in front of a cheering crowd, he quickly pointed out to the funding the NRA has previously provided to politicians.
“ This whole country is going nuts, and the NRA is our way/They’ re responsible for this whole production/They hold the strings, they control the puppet/And they threaten to take donor bucks/So they know the government won’ t do nothing and no one’ s budging/Gun owners clutching their loaded weapons/They love their guns more than our children, ” rapped Eminem.
This isn’ t the first time Eminem has spoken out.
Late last year, the performer released a track titled “ The Storm” during the BET Hip-Hop Awards where he criticized President Trump. The rapper has stood by his scathing remarks against the commander-in-chief.
“ When I [put out ‘The Storm’], I felt that everybody who was with him at that point doesn’ t like my music anyway, ” he told Billboard in January. “ I get the comparison with the non-political-correctness, but other than that, we’ re polar opposites. ”
He added, “ I know that Hillary [Clinton] had her flaws, but you know what? Anything would have been better [than Trump]. A f—ing turd would have been better as a president. ”
Eminem also attacked Trump in a Vulture interview, saying the president made his “ blood boil. ” He also lashed out at Trump in a nine-minute freestyle called “ Campaign Speech” in 2016.
