Eminem’s disdain for President Trump runs deep. In case you forgot, Shady skewered the U.S. commander in chief during his 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards freestyle “The Storm” and later took aim at his wife, Ivanka Trump, with his searing track “Framed.” According to BuzzFeed news reporter Jason Leopold, because of Em’s controversial lyrics, he and his lawyers received a visit from the Secret Service last year.

In 2018, BuzzFeed News filed a Freedom of Information Act request last year to the Secret Service after Eminem’s lyrics on “The Ringer” sparked shockwaves on social media. The 8 Mile MC dished out lines like “‘Cause Agent Orange just sent the Secret Service/ To meet in person to see if I really think of hurtin’ him/ Or ask if I’m linked to terrorists/ I said, ‘Only when it comes to ink and lyricists.’”

This week, BuzzFeed received more than 40 pages in documents that proved that the Secret Service did, in fact, visit Eminem. The files contained information about how the Secret Service looked into Eminem’s controversial lyrics on “Framed” after being contacted by a “concerned citizen.”

Fast-forward to Jan. 16, 2018, and Eminem — along with his lawyers — received questioning for his “Framed” lyrics, as well as his BET Hip Hop Awards freestyle. On “Framed,” Em spewed lyrics about Ivanka Trump, rapping: “Donald Duck’s on, there’s a Tonka Truck in the yard/ But dog, how the f— is Ivanka Trump in the trunk of my car?”

According to Leopold, specifics in the discussions were redacted, as Em’s case was later marked “non-referred” by federal prosecutors, who deemed that the rapper’s lyrics didn’t pose any threats to Trump’s safety.
