Oh boy, Eminem has responded to Machine Gun Kelly’s diss track.
28-year-old Kelly, who’s credited Marshall Mathers as the original inspiration behind his own hip-hop writings, recently sent for the veteran rapper in the song Rap Devil, a nod to Eminem’s Rap God.
On the track, Kelly slated Eminem’s ‘weird beard’ and blasted his last four albums as being ‘as bad as your selfie.’
The feud between Kelly and Slim began way back in 2012 when Kelly tweeted about Eminem’s daughter, Hailie, being ‘hot as f*ck.’ Kelly also claimed Eminem banned him from appearing on his Shade 45 channel.
Kelly says in Rap Devil:
I’m standing up for not just myself, but my generation, I’m doing the same shit you did back in your day
Life is still real on my side, and i had to take time from the grind to defend myself from someone i called an idol. love, Rap Devil.
Now, Eminem has fired back… just not in a song.
The rap legend announced the drop of his 10th album, just eight months after the release of his previous record, Revival.
Kamikaze seems to have taken the world by storm, and has even been considered Slim’s best album in a decade, with the album quickly working its way towards the top of the Official UK Albums Chart.
In an interview with Sway, Eminem said he wants to ‘destroy’ MGK but doesn’t want to give the young rapper any more publicity.
He called the beef ‘f*cking weird’ and is wary of responding as it will lead to more beef with ‘every f*cking body’ he sent for in Kamikaze. Oh and how MGK should ‘shut the f*ck up’.
The surprise album is Eminem’s ninth consecutive number one album, and beat the current record which he held alongside ABBA and Led Zeppelin, who have eight consecutive number one albums each.
