Eminem Destroys Machine Gun Kelly In Epic Rant After Diss Tracks

Eminem Destroys Machine Gun Kelly In Epic Rant After Diss Tracks

Eminem has admitted a homophobic Tyler, The Creator diss he included on his latest album Kamikaze maybe went "too far". "Because in my quest to hurt him, I realize that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it".

Eminem's feud with Tyler, the Creator stems from when he appeared to make fun of Eminem's 2017 single "Walk on Water", tweeting, "Dear god this song is frightful, sheesh how the f-k".

Following the album's release, the rapper was blasted by Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds for the slur, and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, a collaborator on the track, distanced himself from it. "But in the midst of everything else that was going on in this album and the things that it took to pull this album together, it was one of the things that I kept going back to going, I don't feel right with this". The 27-year-old didn't specifically mention the song in his tweet.

Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, said his breaking point came when Tyler called "Walk on Water" - his 2017 collaboration with Beyonce - "horrible". "I'm not gonna be America's punching bag, and motherf****** just wanna think it's cool and safe to say whatever the f*** they want about me". However, he explained to Sway that there was a "more petty" reason behind his feud.

After Eminem called out Machine Gun Kelly on "Kamikaze", MGK responded with a track of his own called "Rap Devil" and Eminem described it as "not bad for him - he had some good lines in it". Like I'm trying to hinder his career. You think I actually fucking think about you? / He'll have to fuck Kim in my flannel / I'll give him my sandals / "Cause he knows long as I'm Shady, he's gon' have to live in my shadow". You know how many fucking rappers are better than you?
