More on Hotel Diablo

On MGK’s new album, he takes aim at fellow rapper Eminem and his viral “Killshot” diss track in his track “FLOOR 13.”

“FLOOR 13” opens with the lyrics, “I just spent too many minutes watchin’ little videos of shitty wannabe rappers dissing me/I just spent the winter livin’ after someone tried to send a kill shot, missin’ me.”

In verse 2 of the track, MGK makes a play off of Em’s 2018 track, “Venom” which was made for the Marvel movie by the same name.

“I sold 40 million records, I ain’t even 30/Give me 20 seconds, I’ll list 10 movies that I been in/One legend that tried to fuck with me and got the venom.”

You can listen to the full track below.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
