In the rap scene, artists frequently engage in rivalry, and in most cases, this leads to the creation of excellent music. The past conflicts between Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem are resurfacing as a result of Megan Fox, who appears to have been MGK’s ex-girlfriend. She started following Eminem after removing all traces of Kelly from her Instagram and posting cryptic messages. Conflict never arises out of nothing, and the two rappers have been at odds with one another for a while, so why was that such a risky move? So let’s examine the issues that exist between Eminem and the divisive MGK.
How it all got started
We need to go back a decade in order to set the stage for this musical conflict. When MGK tweeted about Eminem’s daughter Hailie Mathers in 2012, it wasn’t exactly what a teenage girl’s father would want to see on the internet. The original MGK tweet begins, “[O]k so I just saw a picture of Eminem’s daughter, and I have to say, she is hot as fuck. ”.
(Reader’s note: In several of his songs, Eminem raps about his daughter Hailie and has always been open about their relationship. “Hailie’s Song” is just one example. ).
The message was sent and received regardless of what MGK said in the rest of his tweet (“in the most respectful way possible cuz Em is king”). Eminem was on alert.
However, the threat of Eminem’s retaliation loomed in the music industry even though he had not yet said anything. A few years later, MGK asserted in a radio interview that some reviewers would not consider his work because of his apparent out-of-line comment about Hailie.
The diss tracks are where things really get heated up now.
MGK was a featured artist on Tech N9ne’s 2018 song “No Reason” despite some frustrations with the consequences of the 2012 tweet. MGK references Eminem’s hit song “Rap God” in the second verse, giving it a nod. ”.
I remind everyone that you just rap, you’re not Gods, and I don’t care who got bars by saying, “I pop cherries and popstars, you popsicles is not hard.”
Eminem responds to the criticism of this song with “Not Alike,” another track from his eagerly awaited album Kamikaze. See a portion of Eminem’s “Not Alike” response down below. ”.
He teams up with N9na to work on a feature in order to maintain his tough persona. However, the next time, you don’t have to use Tech N9ne if you want to sneak-diss me. Kelly, I don’t use sublim’s and sure as fuck don’t sneak-diss, but keep commenting on my daughter Hailie I keep on telling motherfuckers But, just in case you forgot really and need Ja memories jarred like strawberry
MGK then responds to that with his own diss track this time. Listen to “Rap Devil” here.
Ayy, someone get him some clippers (zzzzt) His fuckin’ beard is weird Tough talk from a rapper who pays millions for security every year “I think my dad’s gone 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) About to turn 46 years old, dog Talking about “I’ma call up Trick Trick”
Eminem explains his fury
Eminem clarifies his dispute with the younger rapper following this rather epic back and forth. Slim Shady explains that his dispute with Hailie isn’t the only issue in a 2018 interview with Sway Calloway (although she is still involved).
He claimed, “The reason I disparaged him is actually much more petty than that.” “The reason I dissed him is because he got on, and first he said, ‘I’m the greatest rapper alive since my favorite rapper banned me from Shade 45,’ or whatever he said, right? Like I’m trying to hurt his career,'” the person said. I don’t give a fuck about your career. You know how many fucking rappers are better than you, and you think I actually fucking think about you? You’re not even in the fucking conversation. ”.
Eminem releases “Killshot,” a new song that features a criticism of MGK. For a while, the rappers engaged in a public feud regarding the lyrics of this song in interviews, appearances, etc. Then, two years after “Killshot,” in 2020, Eminem makes another mention of MGK.
Eminem raps on “Unaccommodating”: “But when they ask me is the war finished with MGK? Of course it is, I cleansed him of his mortal sins, I’m God and the Lord forgives even the devil worshippers. ”.
Eminem therefore appears to have claimed the final word in the dispute. Although there have been rumors of a fresh feud, nothing quite as outrageous as their 2018 rap fight has surfaced. For now at least. Stay tuned.
