You may remember the Trashiest Rap Beef of 2018 when Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem spent a few months trading low blows with each other. Well, conveniently timed to the release of his new album, Machine Gun Kelly is trying to revive the feud.
In a new interview with Complex, MGK was asked about how they could end the feud. “Put us on a track, see who comes harder,” he said.
“The internet thing trying to muddy it, that was a little annoying because it was kinda like, we can’t be a generation that rides only because a person’s a legend and strictly goes off that factor. When we do something for our generation, step up and acknowledge what happened, hold it down. That was not something I was expecting to ever happen. I said what I said, I don’t give a fuck. That should be the narrative for anyone in our generation.”
He continued, saying that it was weird timing that the feud came up right after Mac Miller’s death. And, as it turns out, MGK revealed in the interview that he wrote his “Rap Devil” diss track while drunk in a locker room:
“We went in the locker room of a place where we were at and I just did it on the spot after that shit released, in a matter of hours dude. I was with Odell [Beckham Jr] the night before, celebrating the $100 million contract thing. I was still just drunk, like, ‘This muthafucka’.”
As he explained, he wrote the first three verses before rapping them to YBN Cordae over Facetime.
“I played him the first three verses,” Kelly said. “He was like, ‘Yo, this Em you gotta go off.’ I was like, ‘What you mean? I did go off.’ But that’s when I wrote the fourth verse.”
