Eminem name-drops Colin Kaepernick’s pig socks

Colin Kaepernick’s name is spreading far and wide in light of his protest, and now we can add rap music to it. Eminem released a new single called Campaign Speech, and he mentions Kaepernick, and specifically the pig socks Kaepernick wore at an open practice prior to his protest becoming publicized. Eminem mentions slapping a cop with the socks. Here are the lyrics, and I have embedded the video down below. (NSFW language):

Expired tags on the Saturn, got Catherine Bach
In the back in Daisy Dukes with the hazards on
At a traffic stop gettin' harassed, sign an autograph
For this asshole cop's daughter
Laugh 'cause I called her a brat on it
He spat on it and brought it back lookin' half in shock
Had a heart attack and dropped dead
Started fallin' back with it
And got slapped with a Colin Kaepernick practice sock

I’m not exactly surprised Kaepernick mentioned in a rap song, and I would not be surprised if there were more than name-drop him. There’s a certain street credibility to what Kaepernick is doing, and this is one way it is spreading.
