Rapper Busta Rhymes did not hold back at the Grammy Awards on Sunday. 

Rhymes joined rap group A Tribe Called Quest and Grammy-nominated artist Anderson .Paak for a politically-charged performance during which Rhymes called out President Donald Trump for his immigration ban. 

“Thank you, President Agent Orange, for all of that evil that you’ve been perpetuating throughout the United States,” Rhymes said. “I want to thank President Agent Orange for your unsuccessful Muslim ban.”

The rappers, who were introduced to the stage by singer Solange, dedicated their performance to the late, great ATCQ group member Phife Dawg. They performed the group’s latest hit single, “We The People,” and were joined by a parade of diverse individuals onstage, including Muslim women wearing hijabs who raised their fists and chanted alongside the rappers as they collectively recited “resist!” 

Watch their epic performance in full below.
