Eminem has released a diss track for Machine Gun Kelly, titled ‘Killshot’.
“Shut the f*** up,” Eminem begins, before turning his attention specifically to MGK’s appearance, rapping: “How you gonna name yourself after a f***** gun and have a man bun?”
His musings also address their ongoing beef, adding: “Your reply got the crowd yellin’ ‘Oo’ so before you die let’s see who can out-petty who with your corny lines.
“I’m 45 and I’m still out-selling you.”
Twenty-eight-year-old Machine Gun Kelly was just one of many artists Eminem took aim at on his new album, Kamikaze – with Drake, Migos and Tyler the Creator all receiving criticism from the Detroit rapper.
MGK got in Slim Shady’s bad books way back in 2012 when he tweeted that the veteran rapper’s daughter was ‘hot as f***’. Bold move, given that everyone knows not to mess with Eminem when it comes to his kid.
Then, in the song ‘Not Alike’, Eminem laid into MGK, rapping: “I’m talkin’ to you, but you already know who the f*** you are, Kelly / I don’t use sublims and sure as f*** don’t sneak-diss / But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie.”
Unsurprisngly, Machine Gun Kelly clearly wasn’t best pleased with Eminem’s comments, hitting back to defend himself against his 45-year-old rival, who he once referred to as his ‘idol’.
Announcing his diss track, ‘Rap Devil’, to his 3.5 million Instagram followers, MGK wrote: “F**** RAP GOD IM THE RAP DEVIL…good morning @eminem”.
The young Cleveland-born rapper, whose real name is Richard Colson Baker, directly targeted Eminem within the first verse, saying: “Ayy, somebody grab him some clippers / His f***** beard is weird / Tough talk from a rapper paying millions for security a year / I think my dad’s gone crazy / Yeah, Hailie, you right / Dad’s always mad cooped up in the studio, yelling at the mic”.
He went on to explain that Marshall Mathers is ‘bored and sober’, then called him a ‘f**** dweeb’ (yep), before complaining about his choice of clothing – ‘sweatsuits and them corny hats’.
The track continued: “Man, you sound like a b****, b**** / Man up and handle your shit (ugh) / Mad about something I said in 2012 / Took you six years and a surprise album just to come with a diss.”
For goodness’ sake, boys. Why can’t we all just get along?
