Following an eventful series of events starting with MGK’s diss of G-Eazy during a Funk Flex freestyle, a G-Eazy answer and a subsequent Eminem rebuttle.
Eminem dropped his surprise 13-track album, Kamikaze, which featured shots being fired at a few rappers on “Not Alike,” featuring Royce Da 5’9
Em’ called out Drake, Tyler The Creator, and Lil Yachty among others. But the rapper who received the worst diss was Cleveland’s Machine Gun Kelly.
Taking a page out of the petty playbook and 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.
im standing up for not just myself, but my generation. 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.

MGK has long been complimentary of Eminem as one of the figures in hip-hop who inspired him to write and rap. Back in 2012, Kelly ruffled Em’s feathers when he tweeted that his daughter, Hailie, was “hot as f—.” He also claims that Eminem has banned him from any more appearances on his Shade 45 channel on SiriusXM.
