Machine Gun Kelly savagely restarts feud with Eminem over diss track
It seems the beef between Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly is never going to end, and the rivals have now been trading insults and barbs for over a year. The feud began back when Kelly made some pretty NSFW comments about Eminem's daughter. Then, in MGK's song Rap Devil, the 28-year-old accused Eminem of side-lining his career.
He subsequently stated on Twitter that he was "standing up for not just myself, but my generation. [I'm] doing the same sh*t you did back in your day." In response Eminem came out with a brutal diss track entitled Killshot, in which he states (among other things): "Stan, Stan, son, listen, man, dad isn't mad/But how you gonna name yourself after a damn gun and have a man bun?"
Just when it all seemed to be dying down, Kelly called out Marshall Mathers for neglecting to perform Killshot during a Brisbane show, despite the fact that the crowd were eager to hear it. On Twitter, Kelly stated: "@Eminem u made the right decision not dropping that weak ass song in concert and putting everyone to sleep. [sic]"
Eminem didn't mince words regarding Kelly during the performance, stating to the crowd: "I can't give that c*cksucker any more f*cking light. Brisbane, did y'all enjoy your fucking selves tonight? Brisbane, thank you, family, for making us feel like family. Y'all are family and we love you. Brisbane, make it home safe and make nothing for MGK."
Social media users didn't take Kelly's words well. One person wrote: "Imagine calling a diss track that went platinum in several countries, charted #3 on billboard and broke YouTube record 'weak' He didn’t perform it on stage despite his packed stadium of fans begging him to because he’s done giving you importance. Grow up, Kells. [sic]" Meanwhile, another person added: "How sad Eminem was performing in a packed stadium & you can't even sell out half of it. [sic]"
However, Iggy Azalea made it clear that she supported Kelly when she criticised Em's songwriting abilities. Taking to Twitter around the time Killshot dropped, she stated: "Diss songs shouldn’t be filled with celebrity name drops to pad out lazy bars ... Also, let’s talk about why it’s lazy now; but wasn’t in the earlier work."
She added: "The earlier stuff was crazy, twisted and creative. This stuff feels more like picking names that fit easily into a rhyme scheme. And that’s my unbiased opinion from a girl that watched this guy's set and sung the words in the crowd. I’d think it regardless. One of the greatest to do it, I’m NOT in dispute about that. But I do think the name dropping thing has become a crutch. [sic]"
Guys; what's it going to take for you to bury the hatchet? Seriously.
