Fans of Eminem and Machin Gun Kelly are starting to say the beef is just a publicity stunt. In case you missed it, the feud is broken down as follows:
- In 2012 MGK tweeted about Eminem’s daughter, saying she was “hot as f*ck”.
- 6 year later, Eminem releases “Not Alike”, dissing MGK. "And I’m takin’ to you / but you already know who the fuck you are, Kelly / I don’t use sublims and sure as f*ck don’t sneak-diss / But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie."
- In return MGK slammed Eminem in “Rap Devil”.
Now that you are all caught up, let’s discuss the points fans are making to support their conspiracy theory.
- MGK and Eminem are signed to the same label Interscope Records. Which means that they both have the same thing to gain with all the views and listens their tracks are getting over this feud.
- Producer Rony J helped on both diss tracks for both artists. Which is odd seeing as though he would know what is in each song when helping the other artist.
- “Rap Devil” was actually uploaded 6 months ago, not in response to “Not Alike”.
Fans are also theorizing that this entire beef isn’t stage either. One example to support this is that maybe MGK had his track waiting for when Eminem would diss him. However, this theory seems highly unlikely according to the majority of their fan base.
