Attack On ‘Agent Orange’ Trump -The surprise LP dropped late last night, and it sees the rap icon on furious form as he tackles his critics directly.
As well as attacking the press for the lukewarm reviews that ‘Revival’ received, the record sees him hitting out at President Donald Trump and VP Mike Pence once more. On ‘The Ringer’ “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”. He continues about Trump: “I empathise with the people this evil serpent sold the dream to that he’s deserted.”
The album cover, as seen below, is an homage to The Beastie Boys’ ‘Licensed To Ill’.
