The rocker made political news over the summer when speculation arose that Republicans were encouraging the ardent Donald Trump supporter to run for U.S. Senate.
After Eminem, who is also from Michigan, skewered Trump in a fiery freestyle a few days ago, fans of both performers began dreaming about the two musicians running against each other - a sort of political death match, Michigan style.
“And since they're both Detroit rappers with zero experience in politics, it only makes sense that they duke it out 8 Mile-style with an epic rap battle for the ages,” wrote Maxim.
