This is an opinion.
- Eminem launched his newest album, ‘Music To Be Murdered By – Side B,’ final week.
- As normal, he disses as many individuals on the file as attainable, together with his former ‘enemy’ Machine Gun Kelly.
- Whether it’s his fragile ego or a lame consideration seize, Em’s newest assault doesn’t paint him in an excellent gentle.
Eminem is without doubt one of the biggest rappers of all-time. He’s additionally one essentially the most insecure.
That has by no means been extra evident than on ‘Music To Be Murdered By – Side B.’ Sure, he apologizes to Rihanna. But earlier than he can end his breath, he’s attempting to resuscitate his stale beef with Machine Gun Kelly.
Does anybody nonetheless need this? Does anybody nonetheless care? Apparently, one individual nonetheless does.
MGK’s dismissive response was spot on. It’s time to transfer on, Em; we’re getting bored with listening to about this.
Eminem Drops Another MGK Diss
Slim Shady dropped a number of veiled jabs at Machine Gun Kelly on his newest album. On the track ‘Zeus,’ Eminem raps:
Fair climate, wishy-washy/ She thinks Machine washed me/ Swear to God, man, her favorite rapper want he’d crossed me
Who is that this girl that thinks Machine Gun Kelly ‘washed’ you, Em? Everyone is aware of Eminem received this battle a very long time in the past. Apparently, it irked him sufficient to rap about it on his new album.
Check out the track under:
On ‘Gnat,’ he continues with the refined hints:
They come at me with machine weapons/ Like attempting to combat off a gnat.
Why does Eminem hold hinting at his disses? It’s like he doesn’t need to totally reignite the meat by addressing MGK by title, however he additionally clearly isn’t prepared to let it go.
Battle raps are normally straight-forward and no-holds-barred. If there ever was a passive-aggressive battle rap, that is it.
Machine Gun Kelly Gives an Appropriate Response
Machine Gun Kelly was fast to reply to Eminem’s refined disses on Twitter. Check out his tweet under:
Translation? “Your subliminal disses are trash.”
What’s ironic is that MGK additionally shies away from addressing his foe by title. Both artists have gotten gun shy towards one another. Maybe they’re beginning to notice that no one cares anymore.
And let’s be clear, Machine Gun Kelly hasn’t let his beef with Eminem die, both.
He launched the diss observe “Bullets With Names” at the beginning of the pandemic. And let’s be actual: Eminem’s profession and clout is out of MGK’s stratosphere, he ought to be attempting to get Em’s consideration. He’s nonetheless attempting to make a reputation for himself.
But that spotlight hasn’t at all times labored out. MGK admitted that his beef didn’t assist his profession as a lot as he might have wished. In December, he advised Dave Franco the impact it had on his album gross sales for ‘Hotel Diablo’:
As a hip-hop album, it’s flawless entrance to again, and likewise a touch on the evolution of how I went right into a pop-punk album. But it was coming off the tail-end of that notorious beef [with Eminem]. So nobody wished to give it the time of day.
Eminem Needs to Make His Own Music
The proven fact that Eminem continues to be paying consideration to the previous rapper, now ‘pop-punk’ artist Machine Gun Kelly speaks volumes. We all know Marshall Mathers is without doubt one of the finest battle rappers ever to contact a mic (even when he usually seeks out a weak opponent). He doesn’t want to show it anymore, particularly not with individuals he’s already shut down.
But a few of us can bear in mind a time when that wasn’t his entire identification.
There was a time when he made basic songs that weren’t about different individuals within the music trade. His work stood by itself.
Songs like “Stan,” or “Guilty Conscience,” or “White America,” or “Lose Yourself” weren’t diss tracks. They have been simply nice songs that Eminem unearthed from his personal creativity financial institution.
Check out the timeless high quality of this observe:
Sadly, that financial institution appears to be empty now.
We’ve already seen him squirm with insecurity when he thought Mariah Carey was going to out him in her newest ebook. Now he’s proving that apart from ‘insecure,’ Eminem can also be turning into lazy.
