During an interview on Real 92.3 LA, the rapper revealed that he believes MGK won. “Em did what I expected Em to do, but nothing to catch up into where hip-hop is today,” Game said at around the 15:35 mark. “I feel like Machine Gun Kelly really gave his all, like a young, hungry dude did. Eminem was Eminem—it was great. Before I heard Machine Gun Kelly, I was like, ‘Oh Eminem.’”
Last August, Em dropped his surprise album Kamikaze, where he attacked MGK (and several others) on the song “Not Alike.” This led MGK to mock Em’s Rap God pseudonym and release the diss track “Rap Devil.” Kelly’s diss apparently lit a fire in Em, as he quickly shot back with his own retort, “Kill Shot.”
But it was difficult to determine who was the victor. Many thought “Rap Devil” was a more entertaining track, but Em’s “Kill Shot” made YouTube history when it premiered with the most debut views for a rap video.
In the interview, Game also discussed how he made 600 songs for his latest album, Born 2 Rap, Dr. Dre mixed the song “Welcome Home” with Nipsey Hussle, and more.
