Eminem says the reason he dissed Machine Gun Kelly was because he accused him of hindering his career and after claiming he'd been banned from his "Shade 45" radio show.

Eminem dissed MGK on "Not Alike" off his surprise album Kamikaze, which inspired MGK's "Rap Devil" diss.

Eminem addressed his homophobic diss at Tyler The Creator on his Kamikaze track "Fall", which he admitted during an interview with Sway that he went "too far". "Stan, son, listen, man, dad isn't mad/ But how you gonna name yourself after a damn gun and have a man bun?".

By 29 I had three albums that had blew... "Say you got me in a scope, but you grazed me / I say one call to Interscope and you're Shwayze, " he raps, referencing another irrelevant rapper of yesteryear, and just how easy it would be to erase MGK altogether. "I'm doing the same shit you did back in ur day. 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".

The feud between Eminem and MGK dates back to 2012, when the latter tweeted that Eminem's daughter Hailie (who was 16 at the time) was "f*cking hot". "The day you put out a hit's the day that Diddy admits that he put the hit out that got Pac killed". "Had enough of this tatted up mumble rapper / How the fuck can him and I battle?".

The line to which he refers is: "Cause Agent Orange just sent the Secret Service/To meet in person to see if I really think of hurtin" him/Or ask if I'm linked to terrorists/I said, "Only when it comes to ink and lyricists'. You know how many f-ing rappers are better than you?" he said. You know how many f***in' rappers that are better than you? "But in the midst of everything else that was going on in this album and the things that it took to pull this album together, it was one of the things that I kept going back to going, I don't feel right with this". "I'm not gonna be America's punching bag and (let) motherf-ers think it's cool and safe to say whatever they f- they want about me". "You're not even in the f***in' conversation".
