Jun 4, 2019
The Cleveland rapper kicked off his tour in Eminem’s hometown.
Machine Gun Kelly isn’t done with his Eminem beef quite yet. Over the weekend, the Cleveland rapper kicked off his Hotel Diablo Tour in Em’s hometown of Detroit by performing his diss track, “Rap Devil.” During the performance, MGK displayed Em’s face on the screen behind him.
“never forget. i love u DETROIT 😈 #HotelDiabloTour,” MGK wrote in the Instagram post sharing a clip of the performance.
MGK release “Rap Devil” last fall in response to Eminem’s Kamikaze track titled “Not Alike,” when he references the time Kelly called Em’s daughter Hailie “hot as fuck” when she was only 16 years old. On “Rap Devil,” MGK accuses Em of trying to sabotage his career and alleges that Em is old and bitter about his place in the current rap scene.
Genius broke down everything you need to know about “Rap Devil”:
During a September 2018 interview with Sway Calloway, Eminem explained that he started the beef with MGK after the latter rapper mentioned Em’s daughter on Tech N9ne’s “No Reason (The Mosh Pit Song).”
A week and a half later, Eminem fired back with “Killshot.” On the track, the Shady Records boss insists he didn’t try to blackball MGK and takes credit for giving his career a boost before destroying it.
Genius broke down all the “Killshot” disses in the video below:
Although Eminem and MGK’s beef has mostly simmered down since then, the rappers took shots at each other in February. Eminem refused to perform “Killshot” during a concert in Australia, saying he “can’t give that cocksucker any more fucking light.” In response, MGK tweeted that Em made the right decision not to perform the “weak ass song.”
