Eminem Attacks Machine Gun Kelly On New Song "Killshot"

Eminem Attacks Machine Gun Kelly On New Song

The back-and-forth emanating Eminem's "Kamikaze" album stepped up a notch Friday afternoon when the rapper fired back at Machine Gun Kelly with a new diss track called "Killshot".

"And every time I do that it makes that person - as irrelevant as people say I am in hip-hop - I make them bigger by getting into this thing where I'm like, 'I wanna destroy him, but I also don't wanna make him bigger, ' because now you're a fucking enemy".

Eminem went on to say he "kept going back" to the track because he "didn't feel right", which led to the slur being reversed on the track.

Check out his full explanation above.

After Eminem called out Machine Gun Kelly on "Kamikaze", MGK responded with a track of his own called "Rap Devil" and Eminem described it as "not bad for him - he had some good lines in it".

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". Eminem told Sway. "Like I'm trying to hinder his career".

Eminem said his "breaking point" came when Tyler criticised his Beyoncé collaboration "Walk On Water".

"First what he said "I'm the greatest rapper alive since my favourite rapper banned me from Shade 45" or whatever he said, right?" "I'm not gonna be America's punching bag and (let) motherf-ers think it's cool and safe to say whatever they f- they want about me". "Had enough of this tatted up mumble rapper / How the fuck can him and I battle?"

"/ Kelly, they'll be putting your name / Next to Ja, next to Benzino, die, motherfucker / Like the last motherfucker sayin' Hailey in vain / Alien brain, you Satanist (yeah)". You think I actually f***in' think about you? The rapper, 45, has repeatedly dismissed those claims, most recently in a 2017 Vulture interview.
