If you are not aware, there is currently a conflict between the two rappers Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly. On August 31 Eminem released a new album Kamikaze that included a song called “Not Alike”, which mentions Kelly commenting on his daughter Hailie. This refers to a tweet from 2012 that MGK posted mentioning how “hot” Eminem’s daughter was. Which caused tension was at the time Hailie was sixteen while MGK was twenty-two. Kelly responded with a diss track by the name “Rap Devil”, a play on Eminem’s “Rap God”. The song includes both compliments and insults towards the rapper, which left some people confused. Eminem later mentioned in an interview that he originally called Kelly out not only because of his comments on Hailie, but also because MGK claimed to be “the best rapper alive” in a freestyle he did about Eminem banning him from his radio show. Eminem finally responded with a diss track directly aimed at MGK called “Killshot”. The feud has been “setting the internet on fire” according to USAToday. When asked about the feud, 9th grader Sophie Briscoe said, “I understand where he’s coming from,” when talking about Eminem. However, she thinks that the entire dispute is a waste of time. So, who do you think won? Do you think Eminem’s response was too late or that MGK made weak arguments? Or do you think that this is not even worth focusing on, like Sophie?
