Music icon Elton John is low-key about that battle rap. The rock veteran has shared his love for Eminem’s recent “Killshot” diss record.
In a sneak peek from an upcoming “Rocket Hour” show chat, John directly tells Em how he feels about the hard-hitting battle bars.
In an upcoming interview on his Rocket Hour show, Sir Elton sat down with the best-selling rapper and said he thought highly of Eminem’s latest diss track ‘Killshot’, aimed at Machine Gun Kelly, who the rapper has been feuding with over the last couple of months. “You know, you’ve had your little moments towards Machine Gun Kelly and you put out the diss track ‘Kill Shot’, which I love, by the way.” (News Hub)
Back in late September, Em’s hit record shot up the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Eminem has proven as much with “Killshot,” his scorching new Machine Gun Kelly diss track that debuts at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. The diss track also launches atop the Digital Song Sales chart, Eminem’s first song to do so since his Rihanna collaboration “The Monster” in 2013. “Killshot” marks Eminem’s 10th Digital Song Sales chart-topper, tying him with Drake for the most among male artists.

Prior to the achievement, G-Unit boss 50 Cent applauded Em’s record making history on video streaming giant YouTube.
