After a week of speculation as to whether their feud was over, Eminem has released a diss track aimed at Machine Gun Kelly. The track, titled “Killshot,” is a response Kelly’s recent diss “Rap Devil,” where he chastised Em for being old and out of touch with his fans. Now the legendary emcee has fired back, and he’s got plenty to say.
Eminem clowns Kelly, or MGK, for having a funny hairstyle and inferior record sales despite being twenty years his junior. “Here’s that autograph for your daughter, I wrote it on a Starter cap,” he raps, “Stan, Stan, son, listen, man, dad isn’t mad / But how you gonna name yourself after a damn gun and have a man bun?” Listen to the full track below.
Eminem Mocked MGK for Biting His Style & Selling Less Albums
“Your reply got the crowd yelling Woo,” he continues. “So before you die let’s see who can out-petty who / With your corny rhymes / Ow, Kelly, ooh, but I’m 45 and I’m still outselling you / By 29 I had three albums that had blew.”
The rapper continues to mock MGK’s career, and the fact that he’s tried to ape his speedy flow. He also responds to direct lines in MGK’s “Rap Devil” diss (which you can listen to below), particularly the ones where MGK pokes fun at the movie 8 Mile. “I’m really sorry you want me to have a heart attack,” he raps. “Was watchin’ 8 Mile on my NordicTrack / Realized I forgot to call you back.”
Em then mocks MGK’s affiliation with Diddy, who signed him to Bad Boy Records. “The day you put out a hit’s the day Diddy admits that he put the hit out that got Pac killed.” He adds, “Oh, and I’m just playin’, Diddy. You know I love you.”
Naturally, social media has had a field day with “Killshot” and the vicious bars that Eminem dropped. Many feel that he washed MGK in terms of the feud, and that the latter was foolish to even respond in the first place.
