Eminem apologizes for homophobic slur on 'Kamikaze'


We've been witness to the growing feud between rappers Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly for a couple of weeks now, and today, Em has shared a searing response to MGK's track, "Rap Devil".

In it, Em (of course) gets in his playground potshots ("how you gonna name yourself after a damn gun and rock a man bun" and "feel like I'm babysitting Lil Tay"), and drags innocent women into the fray (Rihanna, Iggy Azalea, and Halsey are all named).

Then he took aim at MGK's verse on Tech N9ne's "No Reason (The Mosh Pit Song) where he claims that Eminem is 'just rap and not God". Later: "I'd rather be 80-year-old me than 20-year-old you".

The most shocking diss on "Killshot", however, may be when Eminem talks about MGK's failed romance with singer Halsey, and the fact that she's now dating fellow rapper G-Eazy. "Insult me on a line compliment me on the next / I'm really sorry you want me to have a heart attack".

However, Eminem insists that he's not interested in the "Bad Things" hitmaker's career, whilst adding fuel to the fire by saying there are "better" rappers out there than him. "The day you put out a hit's the day Diddy admits that he put the hit out that got Pac killed". You know how many fucking rappers are better than you? "He's super charismatic and shit, but I'm sitting back like, man, at what point do I have to say something just to defend myself?" Some have even taken to calling him Water Gun Kelly instead of Machine Gun Kelly, as an indicator of how ineffective they found his diss to be.

On Friday, Eminem clapped back even harder with an entire diss track aimed at MGK called "KILLSHOT".

"You know you go down a f*cking wormhole of YouTube?", he said.

"Here's that autograph for your daughter, I wrote it on a Starter cap", Em raps. "The word that I called him on that song was one of the things where I felt like, 'This might be too far.' Because in my quest to hurt him, I realized that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it". I'll leave it at that. So I sat back and I'm like, 'Ok, that's fine, ' people can talk insane about me, that's fine, they should express themselves and they have a right to.
