Grammy-winning rapper Eminem spared no one upon releasing his surprise album Kamikaze, dissing everybody and everyone who is a figure in the game of hip-hop. One of his victims happened to be Machine Gun Kelly, who was attacked in “Not Alike.”
And I’m talkin’ to you, but you already know who the #$%@ you are, Kelly
I don’t use sublims and sure as #$%@ don’t sneak-diss but keep commenting on my daughter Hailie
Normally rappers shy away from clapping back at Slim Shady, but MGK was brave enough to go for it and released “Rap Devil”, a diss track mocking Em’s hit “Rap God.” Em has since clapped back with his new “Killshot” battle rap reply. As you keep tabs on this new rap feud, check out 5 Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know About MGK below!
1. Machine Gun Kelly’s beef with Eminem dates back to 2012
Eminem has always been healthily protective over his daughter, so it’s no surprise this is basically what ignited it all. Machine Gun tweeted Hailie Mathers was “hot as fuck”, despite her only being 16 years old at the time. Following the tweet, MGK was banned from Sirius XM radio, and more specifically Em’s own station Shade 45.
2. Machine Gun Kelly also has beef with G-Eazy
Machine Gun Kelly also took a hit the same day Em dropped Kamikaze, as G-Eazy also dropped a diss track aimed at the “At My Best” rapper. Titled “Bad Boy”, it was met quickly with a freestyle from MGK on Hot 97. MGK also accused G-Eazy of copying his style. Either way, it’s hard to deny that they are very similar.
3. Machine Gun Kelly dated Halsey
This is undeniably also one of the reasons behind his beef with G-Eazy. The two rappers have seemingly been in a love triangle with the singer Halsey, as she’s gone back and forth between dating them. She was most recently spotted on stage with G, as he planted a kiss on her during a performance.
4. Machine Gun Kelly is an Actor
The rapper, whose real name is Richard Colson Baker, has also appeared and starred in several films. In his first film Beyond the Lights he played Kid Culprit, which was followed by roles in Punk’s Dead, Nerve, Viral, and The Land. It seems as if it’s worked so far for him, as MGK has several more upcoming roles.
5. Machine Gun Kelly also dated Amber Rose
Way back in 2015, photos of the rapper and fellow star Amber Rose hanging out surfaced. It became known that they became a couple after meeting during a movie filming, and MGK himself claimed that he called Wiz Khalifa (her ex-husband) to discuss the matter. They eventually split, with the main reason being the large amount of attention they received from the media.
