EMINEM RESPONDS TO MGK? KIND OF
“I want to destroy him, but I also don’t want to make him bigger,”
Eminem let it be known that he is not pleased with MGK’s diss song towards him, but as quoted above he wants to be careful how he responds as it will only make Machine Gun Kelly bigger. The man that was the target of MGK’s “Rap Devil” song stated:
“It’s not bad for him,” Eminem said of the MGK song. “He had some good lines in it.”

MGK’s 2012 tweet about Eminem’s daughter, Hailie, when she was 16 years old “hot” a few years ago is what caused this heat between Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly.
Eminem didn’t discover the tweet until more than a year, he said in the Sway interview. He discovered it only after going down “the wormhole of YouTube.”
It was more than that tweet however that made Eminem take shots at MGK. According to Slim Shady Machine Gun Kelly’s recent track with veteran Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne is the reason behind the attck called, “No Reason (The Mosh Pit Song).”
There, MGK took aim at Eminem’s song “Rap God,” with the line: “To remind y’all, you just rap / You’re not gods.”
Eminem also discussed his issues with Joe Budden.
“Me and Joe Budden aren’t, you know, we’re not friends like that. We didn’t go to the same fucking high school. You know what I’m saying? I get that part, But when I’m out here, flying around to different places and doing interviews and trying to use my platform to pump up Slaughterhouse every chance I get, and you’re using your platform to try to trash me.”
He continues, “It was a tap, but it was also saying that his alleged domestic abuse things or whatever, which I’m not going to get into,” He adds, “but I feel like the reason I had to do that is because, like I said, there’s a fine line between saying, ‘You know what? This guy’s been really cool with me, so I’m not going to go in on ‘Untouchable’ like that.’”
Joe Budden has yet to respond to the diss record towards him and is taking the high road. Some veteran rappers see it as cowardice. 50 Cent went on his instagram and wrote
Remy M another rapper who is co-host with Joe Budden on“Is that because he actually dissed you and you have yet to respond yet ‘cause you mad pussy and you’re scared to death and you know he will flame you if you even try it?” Remy asked Budden, before he laughed and responded: “No, Remy. I like rap where people are saying things. That’s all. Machine Gun Kelly, regardless of what you think of his actual skillset, he had a lot to say.”
Ma added: “No one really gives a fuck about what MGK has to say. We wanna know what are you gonna say?”
