Machine Gun Kelly Says Eminem 'Missed' With "Killshot"

Machine Gun Kelly, currently on the road with noted diss nonparticipants Fall Out Boy, estimates that Eminem totally "missed." He's also using this opportunity to remind everyone that "Rap Devil" is still No. 1 on iTunes.

Eminem missed, at least according to Machine Gun Kelly.

The "Killshot" target made that estimation in an Instagram caption over the weekend. In a post showing the crowd from a recent stop on Fall Out Boy's MANIA tour at the Amway Center in Orlando, Kelly paired the goat, devil, knife, and other emojis with a simple message of "He missed."

MGK also told the crowd: "F*ck Marshall Mathers."

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

Kelly previously jokingly rated "Killshot" a six out of 10, noting that it only took "two weeks and three interviews' for Em to respond to his own "Rap Devil." That track, of course, is a devilish nod to Em's "Rap God" and was released in response to Em's MGK lines on Kamikaze cut "Not Alike":

"Rap Devil" is currently holding down the No. 1 spot on the iTunes songs chart, leading a top 5 that also counts recent releases from Bebe Rexha and 5 Seconds of Summer. At the time of this writing, the chance of 5 Seconds of Summer suddenly getting involved in the ongoing Em and MGK disagreement seemed pretty unlikely.

Iggy Azalea, who caught a quick mention in "Killshot," has also responded to Em with some choice words. By Azalea's assessment, the lyrical play at the heart of the diss track is "lazy" in a way his earlier work wasn't. "The earlier stuff was crazy, twisted, and creative," she said. "This stuff feels more like picking names that fit easily into a rhyme scheme."
