As the country continues the fight for gun control, the iHeartRadio Music Awards had a special guest to announce Eminem and Kehlani's performance of "Nowhere Fast."
Alex Moscou, a survivor of the shooting massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, introduced the performance, saying, "We're 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."
As he and Big Sean pleaded for change from the government, the crowd came to a roaring applause as they introduced Eminem, who also attacked gun owners and the NRA.
"This whole country is going nuts, and the NRA is in 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," said Em.
It was a very powerful performance with even more powerful lyrics. This isn't the first time we've heard music from the rapper calling out politicians for the negligence. He was extremely vocal with his opinions on Donald Trump this past year and that's not a bad thing.
Artists have the ability to speak up for those who can't be heard. So it's awesome to see Eminem put his fame to good use.
