Machine Gun Kelly calls out Eminem for not playing “Killshot”
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard anything regarding the Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly beef that first picked up in August. But that all changed earlier today when Eminem made a few choice comments from his Brisbane show.
Em refused to perform “Killshot” at the audience’s request. Instead, he used the moment to call out MGK, and it looks like the latter isn’t staying silent either.
For those who need a refresher, the rappers became embroiled in a bout of back and forth in last fall.
Eminem surprise-released his Kamikaze LP Aug. 31, taking aim at MGK (among others) in “Not Alike” where he brings up comments the former made about his daughter in 2012. MGK later responded with the release of “Rap Devil” Sept. 3.
After teasing he was back in the studio and declaring he ”want[s] to destroy him,” Eminem most recently fired back with “Killshot” on Sept. 14. The track ended up having the biggest rap debut in YouTube history and premiered No. 3 on Billboard.
While Kells performed his “Rap Devil” in Eminem’s home state, Em wasn’t down to do the same with his own “Killshot.” Instead, he referred to MGK as a “cocksucker” and urged his crowd not to give him any further attention.
MGK caught wind of his comments and refusal to play the track, taking to Twitter to reflect on the new developments:
“ay @Eminem u made the right decision not dropping that weak ass song in concert and putting everyone to sleep. ????? #RapDevil”
Eminem refuses to play Machine Gun Kelly diss track “Killshot”
Em was performing Wednesday night at Queensland Sport and Athletics Centre in Brisbane, Australia. The rapper returned to the stage to close out the evening with mega-hit “Lose Yourself.”
Following the track, the crowd began chanting for Eminem to deliver his “Killshot.” He refused and took another shot at MGK (around 9:35 into the below video).
“I would, but I can’t give that cocksucker any more fucking light. Brisbane, did you all enjoy your-fucking-selves tonight? Brisbane, thank you for everything—for making this feel like family. Ya’ll are family, and we love you. Brisbane, make it home safe. Make some noise for your-fucking-selves and make nothing for MGK.”
