Machine Gun Kelly responded to Eminem following the release of his surprise record, Kamikaze, after his derided effort last year, Revival, that didn’t fare well with critics or respected members of the hip-hop community. On Marshal Mather’s new record, he took aim at Machine Gun Kelly, and the 28-year-old, obviously, took the time to hit back.
The 28-year-old rapper, MGK, released a new song called, “Rap Devil,” in reference to Eminem’s song, “Rap God,” that came out in 2013.
In the song, MGK made a few lame attempts at dethroning the legendary Detroit native, pointing to the fact that the rapper is “angry” and “46-years-old.” the rapper wrote, “tough talk from a rapper paying millions for security a year.”
As it was previously reported, Eminem dropped his latest album, Kamikaze, on the 30th of August, Thursday, to a much better reception than his last album in 2017, Revival.
Back in 2012, the 28-year-old rapper commented on Eminem’s daughter, stating that she was “hot as f*ck.” At that time, Hailie, 22, was 16-years-old.
Regarding MGK and his new track, on Instagram and Twitter, people praised Machine Gun Kelly for actually responding to Eminem, despite the fact that his raps didn’t come close to those by Eminem.
On the other hand, people weren’t celebrating MGK’s attempt at dissing Eminem. One person wrote, “the fact that he would even try to respond to Eminem is pretty lame. And all he did was call him old, angry, and crazy.”
“Everybody knows that Eminem is the best when he’s angry, and the fact that he’s old is a stupid thing to point out.” Another person insinuated that Machine Gun Kelly is just a wannabe in comparison to Eminem, and if one was to remove his tattoos, that’s all he would be, just a Slim Shady imitation.
