Hip-hop is still reeling from Eminem’s surprise album Kamikaze. With shots taken at a number of people in the industry, Em proved himself unbothered by confrontation or consequences. Machine Gun Kelly was one of his most notable targets, with Em taking aim because of MGK’s apparent comments about his daughter.
“But next time you don’t gotta use Tech N9ne If you wanna come at me with a sub-machine gun/And I’m talkin’ to you, but you already know who the f**k you are, Kelly/I don’t use sublims’ and sure as f**k don’t sneak-diss/But keep commentin’ on my daughter Hailie,” rapped Em.
Apparently, Machine Gun Kelly plans to keep that same energy. After catching wind of Em’s shots on “No Alike,” the rapper came back at Em with full force, dropping a near five-minute diss track “Rap Devil.”
Originally stemming from a comment made back in 2012, MGK released the track early Monday morning (Sept. 2), taking digs on Eminem’s sobriety, lyricism, age, and reaction time on the track.
“I think my dad’s gon’ crazy, yeah Hailie you right/ Dad’s always mad cooped up in the studio yelling at the mic/ You’re sober and bored, huh? I know” spit MGK, who later expresses how laughable he thinks this six-year grudge is.
While MGK is definitely bold for this move, the track is hard and it’ll be interesting to see how things play out.
