Machine Gun Kelly Blasts Eminem’s ‘Killshot’ Diss Track: ‘He Missed’
Do you agree?
Machine Gun Kelly says Eminem totally whiffed his “Killshot.”
The Cleveland-repping rapper responded to Em’s recently released diss track with a double-barreled blast of two boisterous statements shared on social media.
On Instagram, MGK donned a shirt embroidered with “Killshot” album art and flipped the bird while standing in front of the crowd at a Fall Out Boy stadium show.
Kelly captioned the photo “he missed” along with the goat, devil and knife emojis on Twitter.
He also mocked Eminem’s 11-day turnaround of “Killshot” by creating a meme posted to Twitter. The words “2 weeks and 3 interviews later” appear beneath a photo of TV talent show judges holding three “6” score cards.

The tweet references Eminem’s four-part Kamikaze interview with Sway Calloway. In the second segment, Em revealed why he originally burned Kelly on the Kamikaze track “Not Alike,” which spawned Kelly’s response diss “Rap Devil.”
“The reason that I dissed him is because he got on—first what he said ‘I’m the greatest rapper alive since my favorite rapper banned me from Shade 45’ or whatever he said, right? Like I’m trying to hinder his career,” Eminem said.
“I don’t give a fuck about your career. You think I actually fucking think about you? You know how many fucking rappers are better than you? You’re not even in the fucking conversation.”
In the last segment, released Friday, Eminem revealed that Drake was NOT one of the rival rappers he targeted on his latest album despite lyrics that many interpreted as an insult directed at the Canadian hip hop act.
Here’s the line in question from “Lucky You.”
“I got a couple of mansions/Still I don’t have any manners/You got a couple of ghost writers/But to these kids it don’t actually matter/They’re askin’ me, ‘What the fuck happened to hip-hop?”/I said, ‘I don’t have any answers.’”
“Drake is going to always be in my good graces,” Eminem told Calloway. “He did something for one of my daughters that I will never forget and he will always be in my graces for that.”
“And I like Drake, ” he continued. “What I’m telling you with these lines is, I don’t know what’s real and what’s not, at this point.
“Because you hear shit about this rapper, that rapper, whatever. I’m telling you that I don’t do it. Never have and never will. If I ever need a ghostwriter, I need to just fucking put the mic down.”
“[Drake] makes great music,” he added. It’s not really anything you can say about it”.
As for his beef with MGK, Em probably might decide not to give him any more free press. He even says “I’m only doing this once” in the intro to “Killshot.”
Many have already crowned Eminem the victor. What do you think?
