Machine Gun Kelly Was Not A Fan Of Eminem’s ‘Killshot’ Diss Track: ‘He Missed’
When I recently turned 30, everyone asked me whether or not I felt old. I felt nothing, which is par for the course for me. Saying goodbye forever to my 20s was unsuccessful in forcing me to consider my mortality, but a recent rap beef did.
Last week, Eminem, my favorite rapper growing up, engaged in a full-on feud with a guy by the name of Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), who I didn’t know existed. This beef sent me spiraling into an existential crisis, deeming me completely out-of-touch with the current cultural landscape.
For some reason, one of the greatest artists of all-time found it imperative to go to war with a 28-year-old Cleveland rapper, all because he called his daughter, Hailie, “hot as fuck.”
Eminem clapped back at MGK on his track “Kamikaze,” and MGK responded in Rap Devil by saying Em’s “last four albums is as bad as your selfie.” Rap Devil is currently holding the number one spot on the iTunes songs chart.
Eminem, still triggered, thought it necessary to dedicate an entire diss track to MGK, calling it KILLSHOT. You can listen to it below.
Well, during a recent stop at on Fall Out Boy’s MANIA tour (yes, you read that right) at the Amway Center in Orlando, MGK donned a t-shirt that featured the KILLSHOT art used in Eminem’s track.
MGK, who according to Complex, rated KILLSHOT a six out of 10, sarcastically said that it only took “two weeks and three interviews’ for Em to respond to “Rap Devil.” In the Instagram post, MGK said his idol “missed” with the diss track.
Eminem also took a shot at Iggy Azalea in KILLSHOT, rapping “Next to Taylor Swift and that Iggy ho, you about to really blow.”
Iggy responded with a jab of her own:
Regardless if you think Eminem’s diss track was fire, the only winner here is Machine Gun Kelly. As Drake said in his 8 out of 10 track on Scorpion, “they only blessed when they attached to you.” Eminem just gave this dude a very big spotlight and only managed to look petty in the process.
