Eminem Diss Response
It’s Been a Crazy Few Days…
Eminem’s most recent album Kamikaze dropped last week without notice to critical acclaim, reaching #1 in 70 countries within 24 hours. On that album Eminem shredded the state of rap, taking aim at the industry and dropping names with reckless abandon. It is some of the best work Eminem has put out in years. Social media took no time in responding with reaction videos and approval.
2 days later, little-heard artist by the name of Machine Gun Kelly, or MGK, dropped a prerecorded dis track fired directly at Eminem. The dis track was intended to parasite off the back of Eminem’s new album and succeeded, becoming #1 on iTunes sales within 48 hours. Following up, Joe Budden spent a full hour and a half proclaiming that Eminem hadn’t put out content in over a decade. Joe also said he was the better man in all that time.
Fans have been crying out for an Eminem response to the dis track to no avail so far. Instead, Eminem released an Instagram video with of him playing Pacman. MGK has a tattoo of Pacman on his throat. Shots fired.
Last night the internet went wild when a surprise interview with Eminem responding to the controversy. The first part of the response dropped here. Whether or not we get bars from Eminem is a different story. Part 2 of the interview is dropping today, 13th September 2018 (GMT+10) at 8PM ET.
Personally, I’ve been glued to social media watching all of this go down for the past week. It’s probably the most entertained I’ve been when it comes to rap and feuds I’ve since I was in my late teens. Bring it on!
