Eminem on Machine Gun Kelly: ‘I’ve got to answer this (expletive)’
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Eminem has finally issued a response to Machine Gun Kelly. Well, sort of.
In the first part of a new interview with Sway Calloway on Tuesday, Eminem was asked about his recent beef with Machine Gun Kelly.
The interview cuts off before we get Em’s full answer. But the preview for Part 2 of the interview teases his answer:
“You know you go down the wormhole of YouTube and whatever, right?” Eminem told Sway. “So I see, ‘Machine Gun Kelly talks about Eminem’s daughter’ or whatever, right? So I’m like, ‘What the f***?’ I clicked on it.
“Then he starts doing a press run, basically, about Hailie. I’m like, ‘What the f***?” Eminem continues. “Yo, my man better chill.’ So, that’s not why I dissed him. The reason I dissed him is actually a lot more petty than that. Now I’m in this f*****′ weird thing, because I’m like, ‘I’ve got to answer this mother******.’”
It’s surprising to hear that Machine Gun Kelly’s tweet calling Eminem’s daughter Hallie “hot as f***” when she was just 16 years old wasn’t the exact reason why he took aim at the Cleveland rapper on his new album “Kamikaze.”
MGK has since responded with “Rap Devil,” a diss record calling Eminem old, bitter and short, among other things. Now we know Eminem’s will release an official response to the song.
