As of this morning (September 9) “Rap Devil” is still sitting at the top spot on iTunes U.S. chart, the Apple Top 100 U.S. chart and the Apple Hip Hop & Rap U.S. chart while holding the No. 12 spot on the Apple Top 100 U.K. chart.

The world is still eagerly awaiting for Eminem’s response to the diss track, and according to NME, he’s already in the studio working on it.
“Right now, he in there working,” Porter, a producer at Em’s Shady Records, tells Skoglund16 TV. “We doing something else right now, but trust me, we’ll get to it. I’ll tell you this: I wouldn’t wanna be [Machine Gun Kelly]. It’s great that you took that opportunity and did that, hey, kudos to you, good for you. The one thing that I’m worried about . . . You remember when Thanos threw that whole planet at Iron Man? [It will be like that].”
