(CNN/Meredith) -- Eminem released a four-minute, expletive-filled freestyle rap attacking President Donald Trump at the BET Awards on Tuesday.

The Detroit rapper, who has slammed Trump previously in the nine-minute 2016 freestyle "Campaign Speech," and in Big Sean's "No Favors," had criticized Trump supporters in the past, but this time he took it a step further, directly addressing his own fans on the issue:

"And any fan of mine who's a supporter of his, I'm drawing in the sand a line, you're either for or against, 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 it for you with this," he said toward the end, raising his middle finger.

The latest freestyle, which Eminem revealed on Twitter is called "The Storm," comes as anticipation for Eminem's eighth studio release builds. The rapper decried Trump's comments following the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, questioned the President's own patriotism following his attacks on athletes and Sen. John McCain, and in closing, issued a passionate tribute to Colin Kaepernick.

"I appreciate you @Eminem," Kaepernick tweeted, along with a fist emoji.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback is now a free agent after he rose to national prominence last fall when he refused to stand for the national anthem to protest police brutality. Eminem previously expressed his support for Kaepernick in "Campaign Speech."

Eminem's latest attack is part of a larger trend in hip-hop, which turned on Trump in 2016 and largely settled for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, after nearly three decades of idolizing his wealth and power in hundreds of lyrics.

A request to the White House for comment was not immediately returned.
