    After getting dissed in Eminem’s latest album Kamikaze, Machine Gun Kelly hit back with “Rap Devil,” in which he claimed that Slim Shady had tried to blackball him from the rap industry once he read his 2012 tweet about Em’s daughter, Hailie, being “hot as f**k.”

    Eminem’s assault on Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) in a blistering diss track, “Killshot” came just a week after the Cleveland rapper released “Rap Devil,” which, in turn, was a clapback to Em’s “Not Alike” diss featuring Royce Da 5’9”.

    During his four-minute verbal onslaught, Eminem took aim at MGK, who once claimed that Shady was “too old,” and his career, launching a remorseless assault by boasting about his early success in the 2000s: “I’m 45 and I’m still outselling you/ By 29 I had three albums that had blew…/ I’d rather be 80-year-old me than 20-year-old you.”

    In a final coup de grace, Em made a reference to MGK’s 2012 tweet about his at-the-time 16-year-old daughter, Hailie, whom Kelly described as “hot as f**k,” and alluded to Stan – the rap king’s biggest hit about an obsessive fan who killed his girlfriend and committed suicide: “Here’s that autograph for your daughter, I wrote it on a Starter cap/ Stan, son, listen, man, dad isn’t mad/ But how you gonna name yourself after a damn gun and have a man bun?”

    Slim Shady’s lyrics have already blown social media up, with many saying that the 45-year-old legend had destroyed MGK:

    Others tweeted out hilarious gifs, memes and jokes about the “battle,” with some users even alluding to the Hollywood movie” John Wick,” starring Keanu Reeves, in which his character goes on a killing spree over his murdered dog:

    Em’s colleagues and friends also couldn’t remain on the sidelines, weighing in to comment on the wild beef:

    The bad blood is said to have begun when Eminem discovered a 2012 tweet by MGK, in which the rapper reportedly tweeted some less-than-gentlemanly compliment to Hailie: “Ok so I just saw a picture of Eminem’s daughter… and I have to say, she is hot as f**k, in the most respectful way possible cuz Em is king.”

    Eminem reportedly took this as an insult, and six years later battered MGK in “Not Alike,” a track off his new surprise album, rapping: “And I’m talking to you, but you already know who the f**k are you, Kelly/ I don’t use sublims and sure as f**k don’t sneak-diss/ But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie.”

    A few days later, Kelly fired back, dropping the song “Rap Devil,” in which he claimed Eminem had barred him from his radio channel, Shade 45: “Mad about something I said in 2012/ Took you six years and a surprise album just to come with a diss…”

    In a recent interview with Sway Calloway, Eminem unloaded about the previously low-key feud, addressing the reason for the diss – and the remarks about his daughter appeared to be just the tip of the iceberg.

    “The reason I dissed him is actually a lot more petty than that. The reason I dissed him is… first 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. I don’t give a f**k about your career. You think I actually f**king think about you?”
