EMINEM Killshot, EMINEM Responds To MGK, Eminem x Sway - The Kamikaze Interview (Part 2).
Could we finally be getting a response to MGK's "Rap Devil?" While the clip promoting Eminem's upcoming interview with Sway, which airs tonight at 8 PM EST, does not necessarily confirm the fact, it does seem as though the situation will at least get brought up.
As most of you know, Em took aim at MGK on the Kamikaze track “Not Alike,” rapping: “I’m talkin’ to you, but you already know who the f*ck you are, Kelly/I don’t use sublims and sure as f*ck don’t sneak-diss/But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie.”
It was a response to MGK’s 2012 tweet in which he called Eminem’s daughter, Hallie, “hot as f*ck.” MGK, who previously accused Em of trying to blackball him, responded to the record with his own diss track, “Rap Devil.”
Eminem told Sway he wasn’t pleased about MGK’s comments about his child; however, that wasn’t the real reason he took a shot at him.
“You know you go down a f*cking wormhole of YouTube and whatever, right? So I see, ‘MGKs talks about Eminem’s daughter’ or whatever, right? So I’m like, ‘What the f*ck?’ I click on it,” he explained. “Then he starts doing a press run, basically, about Hailie. I’m like, ‘What the f*ck? Yo, my man better chill, right?’ So, that’s not why I dissed him. The reason I dissed him is actually a lot more petty than that.
"The reason that I dissed him is because he got on—first he said, 'I'm the greatest rapper alive since my favorite rapper banned me from Shade 45,' or whatever he said, right? Like I'm trying to hinder his career. I don't give a f*ck about your career. You think I actually f*ckin' think about you? You know how many f*ckin' rappers that are better than you? You're not even in the f*ckin' conversation."
Em then referred to MGK's verse on Tech N9ne's "No Reason (The Mosh Pit Song)," in which is believed to include a reference to Eminem's "Rap God" cut: "I pop cherries and popstars, you popsicles is not hard/Popped in on the top charts out the cop car/To remind y'all you just rap and not God/And I don't care who got bars."
"Now I’m in this f*ckin' weird thing, because I’m like, 'I gotta answer this motherf*cker,'" he said. "And every time I do that, it makes that person—as 'irrelevant' as people say I am in hip-hop—I make them bigger by getting into this thing, where I'm like 'I want to destroy him. But I also don't want to make him bigger.' You know what I'm saying? 'Because now you're a f*cking enemy' [...] I'll leave it at that. I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do at this point right now."
Eminem said he heard "Rap Devil," and admitted that the track wasn't "bad for him—he's got some good lines in it."
Em also shot down the rumors that he reached out to Diddy in an attempt to get MGK to apologize. MGK made this claim in "Rap Devil."
"I've never made a f*ckin' call to Diddy. Are you f*ckin' kidding me?" he explained. "[...] It didn't even feel like a diss to me. It just felt, like, pitiful."
