The moment y’all hip-hop heads had been waiting for is here. Eminem has finally responded to Machine Gun Kelly’s diss track with a record titled ‘Killshot’.
The feud had started after Eminem targeted MGK on his track ‘Not Alike’, a song off of his surprise album ‘Kamikaze’ that he dropped last month. The young rapper had then responded with a diss track titled Rap Devil.
It is all said to have started back in 2012 when MGK tweeted about Em’s daughter, Hailie, being “hot as fuck” when she was just 16.
In a 2015 interview, MGK had admitted that the single 140-character comment still had effects on his career.
“At the time, I didn’t think that that was a thing. I’ll tell you this situation, ‘cause this is something that I feel like – quiet as it’s kept – is the reason why certain things [don’t happen]. Pictures of [Hailie] had came out, and I’m like, what, 20 years old, 21 at the time? I said ‘She’s beautiful, but all respect due. Eminem is king. What’s wrong with that? Is there a 15-year age gap where I’m a creep for that? I was 21, dawg. Certain people took it, and ran with it and hyped it up. […] Certain people won’t even listen or review [my album]. Certain places, you won’t even hear Machine Gun Kelly on. Certain things won’t even happen. Look, a friend of mine said it best yesterday. They said ‘Why do you care? You came into the industry blackballed. You already came in with everyone hating you.’ So I’m not stressing it man, ‘cause I’m not wrong.”
However, in a recent interview with Sway Calloway, Slim Shady stated that it was not what kicked off their feud. “That’s not why I dissed him. The reason I dissed him is actually a lot more petty than that”, he said. “The reason that I dissed him is because he got on—first what he said ‘I’m the greatest rapper alive since my favorite rapper banned me from Shade 45′ or whatever he said, right? Like I’m trying to hinder his career. I don’t give a f–k about your career. You think I actually f–king think about you? You know how many f–king rappers are better than you? You’re not even in the f–king conversation.”
Whatever the reason behind their never-ending fight, the hip-hop fans surely are enjoying the diss tracks the two of them are directing at each other.
Here, listen to ‘Killshot’.
