Hip hop fans have been waiting to see what is next for the beef between Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly. On Eminem’s surprise album Kamikaze, he took aim at a number of current rappers in the game. That led to MGK releasing a diss track directed at Eminem titled “Rap Devil.”
Since then, everyone has been hoping for a response from Slim Shady.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, we finally got to hear Eminem’s first comments on the renewed beef.
While he did not respond with a diss of his own — yet — Eminem did strong hint that he is going to respond as Part One of the interview with Sway Calloway cut off as we got a teaser for Part Two.
In the reaction, Eminem says his beef is about more than Machine Gun Kelly’s previous tweet about his daughter Hailie.
“You know you go down the wormhole of YouTube and whatever, right?” Eminem told Sway. “So I see, ‘Machine Gun Kelly talks about Eminem’s daughter’ or whatever, right? So I’m like, ‘What the f*ck?’ I clicked on it. Then he starts doing a press run, basically, about Hailie. I’m like, ‘What the f*ck? Yo, my man better chill.’ So, that’s not why I dissed him. The reason I dissed him is actually a lot more petty than that. Now I’m in this f*ckin’ weird thing, because I’m like, ‘I’ve got to answer this motherf*cker.'”
It is time to get your popcorn ready.
You can listen to the full interview with Sway as we all anxiously await Part 2 where the long-awaited response to MGK could finally drop.
