Eminem’s beef with Machine Gun Kelly has apparently taken his career to new heights. His diss track “Killshot” has broken Youtube records becoming the biggest hip-hop debut in the video apps history racking up over 38 million views in just 24 hours.
MGK has yet to officially respond to the song, most Eminem fans don’t think he ever will but the rapper did announce the release of his upcoming mixtape “Binge” which may contain a rebuttal to Em. Unfortunately after “Killshot” we don’t think anyone is exactly checking for it, but some fans are still interested in hearing what MGK has to say after his diss track “Rap Devil” was actually well received by most hip-hop fans who were surprised by MGK’s delivery and actually hard-hitting bars.
If you didn’t already know, Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem have been going back and forth for a little while now in a beef that sort of came out of nowhere. Back in 2012 MGK reportedly made a disparaging comment about Eminem’s daughter Hailie in an interview. Apparently Em, though he took a minute to acknowledge it publicly, was infuriated by the comments and behind the scenes went as far as hitting up record executives to blackball MGK from the industry, even contacting Interscope guru Jimmy Iovine and Diddy whom MGK is signed to.
MGK may have thought this was the end of it, but it wasn’t, Em was pissed and it showed on his track “Not Alike” on his new album “Kamikaze” which is easily one of the rappers best projects in years. On the record the “8 Mile” rapper says:
“This little cock-sucker, he must be feeling himself/He wants to keep up His tough demeanour, so he does a feature/Decides to team up with Nina/But next time you don’t gotta use Tech N9ne if you wanna come at me with a sub-machine gun/And I’m talking to you but you already know who the fuck you are, Kelly/I don’t use sublims and sure as fuck don’t sneak-diss/But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie
Shortly after MGK responded with the track “Rap Devil” which took hip-hop fans by surprise considering it was halfway decent, but everyone cringed at what would come of it. Let the record show that Eminem has yet to lose a beef so maybe MGK can learn something from this whole debacle and come out the other end unscathed. In other news MGK has been ridiculed recently for manipulating a crowd during his opening for Fall Out Boy. Apparently the rapper asked the crowd to hold up middle fingers for a selfie but didn’t show them that he was wearing an Eminem dissing T-shirt that he revealed once he turned around.
In a photo MGK also shows that his Eminem diss has become quite popular on some music charts but we don’t think it’ll come close to the record breaking success Eminem has had with both his album and “KIllshot”. MGK should be releasing his mixtape “Binge” on Sept. 21st, so we look forward to possibly hearing a reply to Eminem on that project, in the meantime we got “Killshot” on repeat.
