We've been witness to the growing feud between rappers Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly for a couple of weeks now, and today, Em has shared a searing response to MGK's track, "Rap Devil". "You best tread carefully Son, before i come tear your ivory tower down like Sulaiman done the Templar Knights".
In his interview with Sway, Eminem said he dissed Tyler after taking offence to comments Tyler and Earl Sweatshirt had made about him during interviews and on social media, including Earl saying, "If you still follow Eminem, you drink way too much Mountain Dew".
The world's wait is finally over, Eminem has officially dropped his response to Machine Gun Kelly.
Some of Em's lines are direct comebacks to "Rap Devil" lyrics ("So before you die let's see who can out-petty who/ With your corny lines (Slim you're old)/ Ow, Kelly, ooh, but I'm 45 and I'm still outselling you/ By 29 I had three albums that had blew"), while others concoct whole new takedowns. "Had enough of this tatted up mumble rapper / How the fuck can him and I battle?" "Had to give you a career to destroy it". The rapper, 45, has repeatedly dismissed those claims, most recently in a 2017 Vulture interview.
"Because now you're a fucking enemy' [.] I'll leave it at that".
Many people believed Eminem had gone after MGK because of comments the OH rapper made about his daughter Hailie, but now Eminem has cleared up any confusion and explained exactly why he dropped the diss.
Eminem continued, "It was one of the things that I kept going back to, going 'I don't feel right with this.' Now I realize people can hear what I'm saying anyways".
