Machine Gun Kelly was one of the many victims of Eminem’s ringer from his surprise album, Kamikaze, released last week Friday. They haven’t had the best relationship over the past few years so MGK’s reaction doesn’t come as a surprise.
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.

On a day that’s dedicated to relaxation, MGK was working hard on Labor Day. He released a song called “Rap Devil” which is a play on Eminem’s song “Rap God.” The 5-minute diss record is accompanied with visuals and dissects everything down to the 2012 tweet about Em’s daughter Hailie.
Hours before dropping the explosive cut, Machine Gun Kelly posted a picture on Instagram of him popping bottles, celebrating his inclusion on Slim Shady’s Kamikaze. Others people that were mentioned on the album were Tyler, The Creator, and Hopsin.
Tyler didn’t respond, but the Internet definitely dragged Em for his anti-gay slurs. But Hopsin was ecstatic about his inclusion on the album. He told his 1 million followers that it was the best day of his life.
