Judging by a short video uploaded to Instagram after the project dropped, it seems MGK isn't bothered by the diss. As Eminem's "Not Alike" blares in the background, Kelly is seen enthusiastically popping a bottle of champagne in celebration of his mention on Kamikaze.
Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem's beef seems to have started back in 2012 when MGK tweeted that he thought Eminem's daughter Hailie was "hot as fuck." She was 16 at the time.
In late 2017, Kelly used his guest feature on Tech N9ne's single "No Reason" to fire subliminal shots at Eminem. In response, Em carved out space on "Not Alike" to spit, "But next time you don't gotta use Tech N9ne/If you wanna come at me with a sub, Machine Gun." He also directly referenced Kelly's tweet about Hailie:
Oh, you run the streets, huh?
Now you wanna come and fuck with me, huh?
This little cock-sucker, he must be feelin' himself
He wants to keep up his tough demeanor
So he does a feature, decides to team up with Nina
But next time you don't gotta use Tech N9ne
If you wanna come at me with a sub, Machine Gun
And I'm talkin' to you, but you already know who the fuck you are, Kelly
I don't use sublims and sure as fuck don't sneak-diss
But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie
Eminem wasn't the only rapper to diss Machine Gun Kelly late last week. G-Eazy also fired shots in Kelly's direction on a new song called "Bad Boy" in which he raps, "Your shots just graze me/ I'm standing, they put a hole in me/I answer to no one, nobody can get control of me/MGK please stop trolling me, get over me."
This seems to have been provoked by Kelly's own shots at G-Eazy during a visit with Funk Flex. "Let's just keep G/Only Eazy I fuck with is E," he rapped in the freestyle over Drake's "Nonstop." Later, he spit, "I fucked his girl now he look like this shit is overbearing/How dare him I dare him/Don't think about comparing/Now turn that frat rap off, I get sick of hearing."
Kelly has been quiet about his simultaneous beefs outside of a quick tweet on Friday in which he acknowledged, "Everyone’s so mad at me today."
