New Music: Machine Gun Kelly – “Rap Devil (Eminem Diss)” [UPDATED]
UPDATE: We now have a video. Scroll down to watch.
Hello, 911? I think I just heard some shots fired.
A few days ago, Eminem dropped a surprise album, Kamikaze, which included digs at a variety of his peers. You know…vintage Eminem. Among those dissed was Machine Gun Kelly, who apparently angered Eminem by tweeting that his daughter, Hailey, was cute. In 2012. No, I’m not joking. Listen to a slowed-down, bootleg version of the Em song in question, “Not Alike,” here (skip to the 3:00 mark to hear the MGK diss).
Unlike most of the people who Eminem attacks, Machine Gun Kelly has banana clips for dat ass — no pun intended. So much so that he made a whole song about it. On “Rap Devil (Eminem Diss),” MGK talks about Eminem’s beard, Eminem’s height, Eminem’s age, Eminem’s sobriety and Eminem’s reliance on Dre beats, among other things; he went in. Every bar was wack, but I respect the boldness, even though I know this is just a rapper capitalizing on the free press that was handed to him. That being said, it’s obvious that he respects and idolizes Eminem, even calling him the greatest rapper I alive on this very track — he isn’t, but that’s what most white people think. Also, in a tweet sent just an hour ago, MGK called Em his idol.
im standing up for not just myself, but my generation. im doing the same shit you did back in ur 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.
