The beef between Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem is bigger than just a song or two, looks like it’s the reason the sales of MGK’s latest rap album ‘Hotel Diablo’ do not meet the expectations. Following his 2019-released LP, Machine Gun made a slight turn and now he’s focusing on pop-punk.
Make the long story short. It all started back in 2012 when MGK made a few comments for Shady’s daughter on social media. Years later, on his 10th studio album ‘Kamikaze’, Em gave his response on the track “Not Alike”. MGK then dropped the ‘Rap Devil’ diss track, which made Slim Shady strike with the final diss track – Killshot, which ended the beef.
Now, in a recent interview with Interview Magazine, Machine Gun Kelly shared some thoughts. The Bad Boy Records-signee defined the beef with Eminem as the reason people do not like the album after it.
“As a hip-hop album, it’s flawless front to back, and also a hint at the evolution of how I went into a pop-punk album. But it was coming off the tail-end of that infamous beef [with Eminem]. So no one wanted to give it the time of day. It’s like if you make a shitty movie and then you come out with a great movie right after, but people want to focus on the fact that they hated whatever you just did. What I did in the beef was exactly what it should be, but that project wasn’t welcomed” – Machine Gun Kelly told Interview Magazine’s, Dave Franco.
