Machine Gun Kelly - Rap Devil

[Intro]
Oh my God, Ronny

[Verse 1]
Ayy, somebody grab him some clippers (Zzzzt)
His fuckin' beard is weird
Tough talk from a rapper payin' millions for security a year
"I think my dad's gone crazy," yeah, Hailie, you right
Dad's always mad cooped up in the studio, yellin' at the mic
You're sober and bored, huh? (I know)
'Bout to be 46 years old, dog
Talkin' 'bout "I'ma call up Trick Trick"
Man, you sound like a bitch, bitch
Man up and handle your shit (Ugh)
Mad about somethin' I said in 2012
Took you six years and a surprise album just to come with a diss (Huh)
Homie, we get it, we know that you're the greatest rapper alive
Fuckin' dweeb, all you do is read the dictionary and stay inside
Fuck "Rap God," I'm the Rap Devil
Comin' bare-faced with a black shovel
Like the Armageddon when the smoke settle
His body next to this instrumental, I'm sayin'

[Chorus]
I'm sick of them sweatsuits and them corny hats, let's talk about it
I'm sick of you bein' rich and you still mad, let's talk about it
Both of us single dads from the Midwest, we can talk about it
Or we could get gully, I'll size up your body and put some white chalk around it (Ayy)

After hearing his name dropped on Eminem's surprise Kamikaze album, Machine Gun Kelly took the weekend to pen his response on wax and take aim at one of his idols on "Rap Devil" on Monday (Sept. 3). The retaliation has received approval from differing crowds within the hip-hop community as the ball now goes back to Em's court for a rebuttal. MGK's lyrical assault attacks Em's alleged inability to age gracefully in hip-hop, challenges his public bitterness when he lives a lavish private life, questions why the 45-year-old attempted to have him banned from his Shade 45 radio station (over a bad taste tweet regarding his daughter from six years ago), and much more. Kelly defended his actions of answering the Rap God's shots from "Not Alike" on behalf of his entire generation. "I'm standing up for not just myself, but my generation," he wrote. "I'm doing the same shit you did back in your 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." While the public awaits the Detroit-bred rapper's response, Billboard deciphers the standout bars from Machine Gun Kelly's scorching "Rap Devil" diss track. MGK mentions his initial 2012 insensitive tweet regarding Em's daughter, who was 16-years-old at the time, when he commented on photos of her that surfaced online. Kelly's sentiments got under Eminem's skin and the tweet still angers him to this day as seen by his response last Friday (Aug. 31) on "Not Alike." "Ok so I just saw a picture of Eminem's daughter... and I have to say, she's hot as fuck, in the most respectful way possible [because Eminem] is king," Machine Gun Kelly penned in May of 2012. At the turn of the century, Eminem became known for his baggy color-coordinated sweatsuits that were a staple of his wardrobe throughout much of his meteoric rise. He even capped off some outfits with a du-rag back then. MGK marvels looking back at vintage Slim Shady and clowns him for his former fashion choices. The 28-year-old then wonders how someone with a net worth north of 9 figures could still be so angry and lash out at compatriots within the genre that has allowed him to prosper.
