Eminem has heard “Rap Devil,” the diss track Machine Gun Kelly put out recently…although he didn’t realize it was a diss at first.
In an interview with Sway Calloway, Eminem shared his honest thoughts, “It’s not bad for him. He had some good lines in it.”
He added, “It didn’t feel like a diss to me, it just felt like, pitiful.”
He also said he isn’t sure if he’ll respond, because he doesn’t want to start responding to every diss. And also, he doesn’t want to elevate his enemies. “I want to destroy him, but I also don’t want to make him bigger.”
Here’s the UNCENSORED video. Eminem starts talking about MGK at the 8:00 mark. The thing about the diss being pitiful is 12 minutes in.
Later, Eminem said he regretted calling Tyler, The Creator a gay slur on “Kamikaze.”
He said, “I think the word that I called him on that song was one of the things where I felt like this might be too far. Because in my quest to hurt him, I realize that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it.”
Here’s the UNCENSORED video. Skip to the 12:30 mark.
