Less than a week after Eminem took aim at Machine Gun Kelly on his surprise album Kamikaze, the latter has fired back at his former idol with the diss track “Rap Devil.”
A play off Eminem’s 2013 track “Rap God,” MGK’s “Rap Devil” dumps on everything from Em’s “weird” beard to being “sober and bored.” It only gets worse from there, as Kelly points out that Eminem’s “last four albums” were “as bad as your selfie,” and accuses Marshall Mathers of using his manager Paul Rosenberg to try and shelf MGK’s career.

Organization handgun Kelly has elongated been kind of Eminem as one of the information in hip-hop who inspired him to cut up a pen. to the rear in 2012, Kelly tangled Em’s fine hair what time he tweeted that his daughter, Hailie, was “hot as f—.” He furthermore claims that Eminem has banned him from any extra appearances on his Shade 45 groove on SiriusXM.
On his new Kamikaze track “Not Alike,” Eminem addresses MGK’s comments about his daughter, rapping, “And I’m talking to you but you already know who the fuck you are, Kelly/ I don’t use sublims and sure as f— don’t sneak-diss/ But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie.”
On Monday (Sept. 3), MGK defended “Rap Devil” on Twitter, writing that he’s standing up for his “generation” amid Eminem’s attack.
“Im standing up for not just myself, but my generation,” Kelly wrote. “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.”
