Just a few short hours later and “Rap Devil” was sitting at No. 1 on the iTunes U.S. chart.

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].”

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.
