The world has been anxiously awaiting Eminem‘s response to Machine Gun Kelly’s “Rap Devil”, wondering when and how the declared ‘Rap God’ will respond to the diss track. Now, Em sits down in an exclusive interview with Sway Calloway to address “this fucking weird thing” with MGK.
In ‘The Kamikaze Interview: Part 2’ Eminem discusses the Slaughter House saga, his new Kamikaze album, and what we’ve all been waiting for… MGK.
“The shit is, just for the record, the thing that was going on that he was saying about my daughter, I didn’t even know about that until literally like a year and a half later,” Eminem tells Sway. “It never hit my radar.”
So what brought on the MGK diss in Em’s latest album?
“The reason I dissed him is actually a lot more petty than that. The reason that I dissed him is because he got on—first he said ‘I’m the greatest rapper alive since my favorite rapper banned me from Shade 45’ or whatever he said, right? Like I’m trying to hinder his career. I don’t give a fuck about your career. You think I actually fucking think about you? You know how many fucking rappers are better than you? You’re not even in the fucking conversation.”
Em goes on to address MGK’s Tech N9ne rap, his Twitter posts, and his freestyle about Shade 45.
“Shut the fuck up. Shut the fuck up. Now, I’m in this fucking weird thing because I’m like, I gotta answer this motherfucker.”
“I wanna destroy him, but I also don’t wanna make him bigger you know what I’m saying? Because now you’re a fucking enemy. So, I’ll leave it at that. I’m not sure exactly what I’m gonna do at this point right now because I’m still kinda waiting to see what.”
And what did Em think of MGK’s “Rap Devil” track?
“It’s not bad for him. He had some good lines in it.”
