MGK, Eminem feud has one clear winner, Young Thug says
Young Thug took to Instagram to share his thoughts on who he believes is the winner of the rap beef.May 7, 2019
Last summer it was hard to get online and not see something regarding the feud between Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem. Things began to heat up with several back and forth diss tracks, leaving fans to decide who “won” the rap battle.
According to rapper Young Thug, the battle had one clear winner.
Back in August, Eminem dropped his surprise album Kamikaze. On it, he included the track “Not Alike” which took shots at a few rappers including MGK.
While the dust has seemed to settle on the whole ordeal, that didn’t stop Young Thug from sharing his thoughts on who won.
Young Thug and MGK were recently spotted with several other artists at Emo Nite L.A. during which he posted a video to his Instagram story that caused a little bit of a stir.
On his Instagram Story, Young Thug posted a video of MGK with the caption, “The one guy that murdered ‘M’.”

More on Machine Gun Kelly, G-Eazy and Eminem’s feud
Eminem’s “Not Alike” call-out follows a tweet made by MGK back in 2012 where he made a comment about Em’s daughter Hailie.
After appearing on Funk Flex’s show to perform a freestyle, MGK notably took a shot G-Eazy, with the following:
“Let’s just keep G. Only Eazy I fuck with is E. I seen he’s that his hearing got a hanging earring.
I fucked his girl now he look like this shit is overbearing. How dare him. I dare him. Don’t think about comparing. Now turn that frat rap off, I get sick of hearing.”
A few hours later, G-Eazy fired back with his track “Bad Boy.”
After a few more back and forth disses on social media, MGK and G-Eazy eventually squashed their beef just last month.
However, the way they got there might surprise some, as NME reports it was due to Eminem staging an “intervention.”
The duo allegedly met face-to-face backstage Saturday for the first time since the feud ignited last year.
“It was very important to both of the guys to let everyone know all was well,” the unnamed source says. “They’re both so thankful that Eminem got involved to help and realized the whole thing was silly in the first place. The beef has officially been squashed.”
