Eminem VS MGK – Why So Much Beef?
So Eminem released a surprise album titled Kamikaze on August 31. On the album, he calls out a number of rappers on various songs: Joe Budden, Lord Jamar, Lil Pump, Lil Xan, Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), Tech N9ne, Vince Staples, Tyler the Creator, and Earl Sweatshirt.
He expressly stated one time that if you’re not Kendrick, Yeezy, Cole and Jay Z, then you should get out of his face. Even Drake got dissed ( my own baby daddy).
No one else has responded to Eminem’s insults with their own diss track except for our brother in the Lord, Machine Gun Kelly or Micheal Colson or MGK, which is unsurprising because the guy hasn’t done anything remarkable enough to deserve a diss track from any Important Rapper ( no shades intended).
Now To The Beef.
The Kamikaze Track (Not Alike) dissed a handful of the rappers mentioned above, but it’s especially concerned with Machine Gun Kelly, who in 2013 tweeted that he found Eminem’s daughter Hailie “hot as fuck.”
Firstly, you just don’t do that, Family is out of bounds. It’s in the Rap Code. But He got served properly
Because On this song, Eminem raps:
“If you wanna come at me with a sub, Machine Gun
And I’m talkin’ to you, but you already know who the fuck you are, Kelly
I don’t use sublims 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 or pineapple, apricot jelly
I respond rarely, but this time Shady ’bout to sound off
Like a fuckin’ cocked semi Glock, demi-god
Let me put a fuckin’ silencer on this little non-threatening blonde fairy cornball takin’ shots at me.”
In short, MGK is the blonde Fairy Cornball. Actually he fits the description ( no shades again)
To Reply this diss, Machine Gun Kelly dropped the diss track “Rap Devil” on September 8, which is noteworthy only for the progression of this beef explainer, and because it opens with
“Ayy, somebody grab him some clippers (zzzzt)
His fuckin’ beard is weird,” which is both hilarious and true.
He then adds:
“Hello Marshall, my name’s Colson
You should go back to Recovery ( an old album of Em)
I know your ego is hurtin’
Just knowin’ that all of your fans discovered me (hi)
He like, “Damn, he a younger me
Except he dresses better and I’m ugly
Always making fun of me.”
Secondly, MGK is so wronggggg!!!! He’s most definitely not finer than Eminem but whatever floats his boat.
On September 16, Eminem fired back with yet another diss track, “Kill Shot,” where he raps:
“But I’m 45 and I’m still outselling you
By 29 I had three albums that had blew
Now let’s talk about somethin’ I don’t really do
Go in someone’s daughter’s mouth stealin’ food.”
Frat rapper G-Eazy, also known as Halsey’s ex-beau, got in on the action—because he hates Machine Gun Kelly, too with a not-so-subtle Instagram post captioned “Let’s talk about it”:
Instead of fueling the flames by coming back with another diss, MGK posted an Instagram, simply declaring “he missed,” which doubles as a response and effective promo for his EP Binge, out this Friday.
My own question is what is Brother G-Eazy’s own in this holy war?
Diss tracks are supposed to be uncivil and funny, and that’s largely what I’m getting out of these—except in the case of Eminem, where most of his insults are, as they’ve always been, mutually homophobic and lazy. I mean, If I sold as many records as Eminem, I don’t think I’d be fucking around with the Roadies guy for real. But They kind of took it out of the diss realm. Like I said, it’s a Holy war.
As for how the fans perceive this fight, On Sunday, Machine Gun Kelly dissed Eminem on stage at the Amway Center in Orlando. MGK opened his performance of “Rap Devil” by joking about Em’s age, then he screamed, “The real Slim Shady can’t stand up…Fuck Marshall Mathers.” With all the screaming, he still got booed.
There you have it, that’s the Eminem vs MGK gist in summary. I don’t know about y’all, I think MGK should just stay clear of Eminem for good.
Tell me what you think about this beef.
