Eminem responded to Machine Gun Kelly’s Rap Devil diss track with KillShot. It took him a week and the hip hop world has been waiting with bated breath. Was Eminem really washed up like some suggested, or did MGK awaken a sleeping giant?
Eminem has put out a hit list on his most-recent album. On Kamikaze he clapped back at detractors like Charlamagne Tha God, Lord Jamar, Joe Budden, DJ Akademiks, Tyler The Creator and Machine Gun Kelly. Just because you get hit doesn’t mean you have to hit back. Joe Budden and Tyler The Creator knew their places and kept quiet. However, MGK clapped back at arguably the greatest rapper alive with Rap Devil. On Kamikaze Eminem said “Ya’ll should have let me be.” Truer worlds were never spoken as Eminem absolutely sonned MGK on Kill Shot.
The Shock Exchange suspected KillShot would garner a lot of buzz, but in know way could he have predicted it would set the entire hip hop world on fire. Everybody is talking about it and reacting to it, and not just MGK. Rap impresario P. Diddy may be collateral damage after Eminem mention him and Tupac in a sentence; the verse got a stern warning from Jay Electronica.
