Rapper Machine Gun Kelly hits out at Eminem on new diss track

Machine Gun Kelly has fired back at Eminem in a new diss track after he was targeted on the rap superstar's surprise album.

The Lose Yourself hitmaker quietly dropped Kamikaze without fanfare on Friday (31Aug18), and he quickly hit headlines for attacking Kelly on the song Not Alike, after he lusted after Eminem's daughter Hailie in 2012, when he called her "hot as f**k".

On the track, Eminem called him out by name, spitting, "And I'm talkin' to you/but you already know who the f**k you are, Kelly/I don't use sublims (subliminal messages) and sure as f**k don't sneak-diss/But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie."

On Monday (03Sep18), 28-year-old Kelly fought back with Rap Devil, a play on Eminem's 2013 song Rap God, and in it, he attacked the 45 year old over his age and suggested he only took aim at Kelly because he's bored now he is sober.

Hitting back, Kelly rhymed, "Tough talk from a rapper paying millions for security a year/'I think my dad's gone crazy,' yeah Hailie you right/Dad's always mad cooped up in the studio yelling at the mic/You're sober and bored, huh? I know/About to be 46 years old, dog."

"(It) took you six years and a surprise album just to come with a diss," he continued.

Eminem has yet to respond to Kelly, but the Bad Things hitmaker explains he went after the rap veteran to stand up "for not just myself, but my generation".

"im doing the same s**t you did back in ur (your) day," Kelly writes on Twitter. "life is still real on my side, and i had to take time from the grind to defend myself from someone i called an idol. love, Rap Devil (sic)."
