For the past week, my Facebook and Twitter timeline have been nothing but opinions and discussions between the Rap God and the Rap Devil. You either like Eminem, a rapper who’s been known as Rap God because he’s been in the game so long and makes killer raps, or you like MGK, a fast growing young rapper from Cleveland who’s taking the rap game to a new level, and if you don’t care about either then you’re irrelevant. I’ve never seen this much buzz over two rappers fighting before. But that’s what happens when Eminem releases a surprise album “Kamikaze”, where he disses everybody who hated on him last year in 2017, when his album “Revival”, completely flopped.
Eminem didn’t only throw shade at MGK. He went on to call out many rappers and other stars who wanted to say things about him in the past.

It’s safe to say Eminem was clearly ticked off about his album flopping last year, and he wasn’t going to let anybody get away with it.
In one of Eminem’s songs, “Not Alike” he goes on to diss MGK saying:
“If you wanna come at me with a sub, Machine Gun, And I’m talkin’ to you, but you already know who the fuck you are, Kelly I don’t use sublims and sure as fuck don’t sneak-diss, But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie.”
In 2012, MGK made a tweet where he called Eminem’s daughter, Hailie “hot”, which Eminem didn’t take lightheartedly. Everybody knows you don’t say something about Eminem’s daughter.
Once MGK heard he was dissed in Eminem’s album, he wasn’t going to let it go. He then released a diss track titled “Rap Devil”, where throughout the entire song he fires shots at Eminem being too old to rap, and being the big bad bully of rap.
“I gotta respect the OGs and I know most of ’em personally (ayy)
But you’re just a bully actin’ like a baby
So I gotta read you a nursery (nursery)”
“The big bad bully of the rap game can’t take a fuckin’ joke
Oh you want some fuckin’ smoke (what?)
But not literally, you’ll choke
Yeah I’ll acknowledge you’re the GOAT
But I’m The Gunner, bitch, I got you in the scope (brra)”
People went crazy over this. No rapper has ever tried to go up against the Rap God, Eminem himself. Some say MGK’s career is over now, other’s say he has a lot of balls to go up against Eminem like that.
What’s next in this rap battle? Who’s going to win?
Is the Rap God going to write another diss about MGK? Or will he let it go?
Is there even going to be a winner, or is this all for publicity?
Will any other rapper step up to the plate and try to take a swing at Eminem?
Or is everybody else smart enough not to mess with him?
Both rappers are very well known in the rap industry, so who knows what’s going to happen next.
Before this “beef” between Eminem and MGK, before this was even relevant, I made a blog about the two rappers. Check out the link below to read more about Eminem and MGK.
