(AllHipHop News) Machine Gun Kelly took an interesting approach with his diss record for Eminem. "Rap Devil" included MGK calling Marshall Mathers the "greatest rapper alive" and also calling him a "b*tch."
While praising and blasting the Hip Hop veteran on the same song, Kelly acknowledged Em's greatness, but he also called out his rival for supposedly trying to hinder his career. The Cleveland representative further explained his issues with Slim Shady via Twitter.
> im standing up for not just myself, but my generation. im doing the same sh*t you did back in ur day. life is still real on my side, and i had to take time from the grind to defend myself from someone i called an idol. love, Rap Devil.
"Rap Devil" was a response to Eminem's Kamikaze track "Not Alike." On the song, the Detroit spitter took issue with Kelly's 2012 tweet about his then 16-year-old daughter Hailie Scott-Mathers.
The star of the upcoming Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt claims that tweet led to Em blackballing him in the industry. According to Machine Gun, he has been banned from appearing on Shade 45 radio and Paul Rosenberg allegedly tried to get him shelved at Interscope Records.
