Like I'm trying to hinder his career. "Wait, you just dissed me?"

As one of the world's most prolific rappers, it's rare you'll find someone willing to challenge Slim Shady for fear of reprisal.

He also brings up MGK's beef with G-Eazy ("We can all see you're fuckin" salty / "Cause Young Gerald's balls deep inside of Halsey") and even takes a controversial shot at Diddy. Machine Gun Kelly returned fire a few days later with his song "Rap Devil".

"I realize now - and I realized when I said it, but I wasn't in the mind frame of".

"And every time I do that, it makes that person - as "irrelevant" as people say I am in hip-hop - I make them bigger by getting into this thing, where I'm like 'I want to destroy him. "You would suck a dick to fuckin" be me for a second", says Em.


"Because now you're a fucking enemy' [.] I'll leave it at that".

Eminem explained that he kept coming back to that word when putting the album together because he didn't "feel right" about it, so his team "spun the word back" to obscure it, but he now realizes everyone could still understand what he's saying. The young rapper then responded with the diss track "Rap Devil".

In his interview with Sway, Eminem said he dissed Tyler after taking offence to comments Tyler and Earl Sweatshirt had made about him during interviews and on social media, including Earl saying, "If you still follow Eminem, you drink way too much Mountain Dew". Mostly, clowned Eminem for being old and out-of-touch.

He continued: "So I click on it. he starts doing a press run, basically, about Hailie". Yo, my man better chill'. However, he explained to Sway that there was a "more petty" reason behind his feud. "Now I'm in this f***in" weird thing, because I'm like, "I've got to answer this motherf***er'".

Two weeks ago, Eminem came out with the surprise album Kamikaze, and he went after Machine Gun Kelly on the song "Not Alike".
