According to a recent interview quoted by XXL, Machine Gun Kelly shelved a possible response after hearing “Killshot.”
In the interview, MGK shares that he had a clip ready, but “I heard ‘Killshot’ and I put that sh*t back in the holster… He called me a mumble rapper, dog.”
He continued to say “We’re talking about facts, you want to talk about man buns? Answer the facts… You want to talk about a hair style I wore in a blockbuster movie? And a 10-episode Showtime series called Roadies? I’m an actor, homie. How disconnected are you?”
When asked if he would continue the feud with Eminem, he said “This wasn’t even on my path anyway… I’m on a tour opening up for a rock band, in a completely different mind state than this.”
From my standpoint, I wasn’t a huge fan of “Killshot,” but at the same time, MGK’s diss to the original song was so weak, I can’t even begin to praise him. I’ve heard MGK spit some straight fire before, and that was his weakest material. It’s probably best that he stays sitting down, and opening shows for Fall Out Boy. Which, let’s face it, when FOB fans boo you for trying to diss Slim Shady, you got some issues.
