'Killshot':- We Rated The Best Lines Based On Shock Effect.
By: - Floyd Austin Raphael Eminem released a clapback diss track in 11 days of being called out by Machine Gun Kelly, the singer of 'Mind Of A Stoner' fame. Wasting no time and cutting to the chase is what we're going to do here. There's bodies lying all over the floor and Slim's killed em, killed em.
"Here's that autograph for your daughter, I wrote it on a Starter cap."
Barely into the flow of things and Eminem's already addressed a few disses on 'Rap Devil' including his: -
- Apparent leaving behind and forgetting '8 Mile' (the name of a famous road 8 miles from his hometown of downtown Detroit).
- Most importantly he interprets the situation of Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) as one similar to Stanley Mitchell, the fictional character representing Eminem fans around the world in 'Stan', the Eminem song praised for its crisp vocals, beautiful flow and presentation of the song in a story-like manner detailing verses in the form of "fan-mail" and being critically acclaimed for its chorus by Dido and the portrayal of Eminem fans who become attached to him because of his support to them during tough times with his music.
[caption id="attachment_2770" align="aligncenter" width="808"] Stan has been hailed for its lyrical genius and composition. Source: - KnowYourMeme[/caption] The whole situation was actually predicted by Eminem in his 2015 record setting song, Rap God: -
" So I wanna make sure somewhere in this chicken scratch I scribble and doodle Enough rhymes to maybe to try and help get some people through tough times But I gotta keep a few punchlines just in case cause even you unsigned Rappers are hungry looking at me like it's lunchtime"
Kelly has stated multiple times in the past, the influence that Eminem has had on him and his career and that he feels he is a 'king' https://twitter.com/machinegunkelly/status/20020209613?s=20 MGK has been a big fan of Eminem for so long, so his idea to diss the man just seems counterintuitive.. https://twitter.com/Yassine_Afnisse/status/1040838048802643973?s=20 https://twitter.com/bizarresworld/status/1040714259678875649?s=20
"Stan, Stan, son, listen, man, Dad isn't mad But how you gonna name yourself after a damn gun And have a man-bun?"
Again, sonning the new age rapper, Eminem just says dissed MGK by referring to his long 'Man-Bun' hairstyle that he sported before. If anything is known, it's that "the man-bun is the Millenial generations mullet."~ Deadpool. https://twitter.com/TheFilmAvenger/status/980143875854540800?s=20
"So before you die let's see who can out-petty who With your corny lines ("Slim, you're old")—ow, Kelly, ooh But I'm 45 and I'm still outselling you By 29, I had three albums that had blew"
Eminem does not hold back when it comes to trading blows and his long and varied history of reflection, hate and verbal dominance should leave no cause for people to doubt that going up against the lyrical genius is like courting a death knell to their own career. So before going all-out on Kelly, he states that before the mudslinging begins, the facts should be reviewed beginning with the Em saying that the hits on Eminem's age did not affect him, rather he mocks them by taking injury saying, "ow, oo". When he was just 29, he had already achieved acclaim for his 'Slim Shady LP' that has since been certified quadruple platinum- which means it sold 4 million copies since excluding illegal downloads and illegal online streams. [caption id="attachment_2847" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Source: - Giphy[/caption] He had also paved the way for his own record label, 'Shady Records' Eminem is also 45 and will be 46 come October 17th and the hits have still been coming from the Detroit hustler as expected. He was recently named among the highest paid rappers coming in at 13 topping the likes of Meek Mill, the Internet's beloved- Russ, Birdman '1-800-273-8255' fame, Logic. He made around $23 million through sales, endorsements and back-pay last year. ￼ [caption id="attachment_2802" align="aligncenter" width="1200"] Eminem made more this year than 'Everyday' hitmaker, Logic.[/caption]
"But you're a fuckin' mole hill Now I'mma make a mountain out of you, woo!"
Yea. Eminem doesn't mess around when it comes to stating your place in regards to his fame. He calls MGK a molehill about to be made into a mountain because of the fact that he will gain fame and fan interest simply because Eminem chose to diss him back. This comes from the famous saying, "Making mountains out of molehills" or making big of a small topic [caption id="attachment_2826" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Don't get it mixed up.

"Got more fans than you in your own city, lil' kiddy, go play Feel like I'm babysitting Lil Tay"
MGM is from Cleveland with around 386,000 people. Eminem's large fan base ensures he probably has more fans there than MGK himself. Facts? MGK is from Cleveland, the King of Cleveland is LeBron James. LeBron James knew the lyrics to Kamikaze within 30 minutes of its launch since he played it so many times. Facts. He starred in the music video of 'Forever' featuring Lil Wayne, Eminem and Drake. https://twitter.com/KingJames/status/1035542899923079169?s=20 Oh and need we recall who Lil Tay is? https://twitter.com/ReaIamtheliltay/status/996739868352045058?s=20
Lil Tay: -" I'm a Harvard dropout"
Interviewer: - "What city is Harvard in? "
Lil Tay: - "I kinda forgot cause I haven't been there in a long time"
Oh yes. This conversation actually took place.
"Kelly, they'll be putting your name Next to Ja, next to Benzino—die, motherfucker"
Eminem just does not mince his words. He is brutal to point out that the 15 seconds of fame he's giving MGK will fade much like the careers of Ja-Rule and Benzino who were rappers who had made references towards Eminem and his family and were later called out and owned in individual tracks.
"My biggest flops are your greatest hits"
Two RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards which means he has earned a Diamond Award on two separate digital songs – sales and streams of more than 10 million along with 10, 11 and 12x multi-platinum and diamond singles. Even his "failed" songs and albums make it to commercially successful numbers. Relapse (2009) hailed as his worst album by many won one of his 15 Grammy Awards for him for 'Best Rap Album' and is now 2x platinum meaning it has sold 2 million copies. All 3 studio albums of MGK are certified Gold meaning he has sold 500,000 copies or 1/4th of the amount sold by Relapse.
"Yeah, bitch, pop Champagne to this! (pop)
It's your moment This is it, as big as you're gonna get, so enjoy it Had to give you a career to destroy it"
MGK was popping champagne and listening to his song 'Rap Devil' and Em warns him that his end is here saying he's gonna shoot to kill as he gives his career life by talking about him but also killing his career by dragging his name through the mud and showing his lyrical genius.
"How can Him And I battle.......
(8 bars later)
You're fuckin' salty'
Cause Young Gerald's balls-deep inside of Halsey"
Referencing the G-Eazy and Halsey song that can be traced back as the first official sign of their relationship beginning and calling Kelly salty because of his hate towards G-Eazy in a previous song where he claimed G-Eazy was copying his style because he has gotten back together with Halsey whom he had had an amicable split with in the middle who had dated MGK before. He also makes it obvious that the "love" is present and that MGK and Halsey are good with no signs of being fazed by MGK. [caption id="attachment_2835" align="aligncenter" width="384"] Why so salty MGK?[/caption] G-Eazy even posted this picture with the caption: - 'Let's Talk About It' referencing the lyrics of the chorus of Rap Devil https://instagram.com/p/BnuEelDHxOt/?utm_source=ig_embed
"Killshot, I will not fail, I'm with the Doc still
But this idiot's boss pops pills and tells him he's got skills
But, Kells, the day you put out a hit's the day Diddy admits
That he put the hit our that got Pac killed. Ah!"
Inarguably the biggest oomph! moment of the track is when Eminem states his purpose and intent to destroy MGK alongside a very "shady" hit towards when MGK will taste success. Eminem announces that he is one hundred percent for Dr. Dre and that his Killshot will take no hostages and it will be what is states to be - a Kill Shot (a shot that does not maim or injure but kill!) [caption id="attachment_2836" align="aligncenter" width="495"] Dre and Eminem have been with it from 'Forgot About Dre' through to 'We Made You' and more. Source: - Giphy.[/caption] He also references the conspiracy theory that Diddy, boss of MGK and close friend of Eminem paid off hitmen from the 'Crips' gang of LA to kill Tupac and Suge Knight (founder of Death Row Records, a famous and brutal record company with a dark and varied past of murder, threats etc). Tupac Shakur was at the height of his fame being the rapper who had come up alongside Snoop Dogg and is widely touted as one of the best rappers ever alongside Biggie Smalls, The Notorious B. I. G. Biggie and Tupac- "The greatest rappers ever"
What Have We Learned?Don't diss an icon who's ended the careers of heavy hitters like Ja-Rule. If you don't know Ja-Rule, it's probably cause of something Eminem had to do with it. Eminem takes no hostages. He is not friendly. He bites. He has proclaimed that he is king and he is God. Who's next to battle for the throne?
