As Hip Hop fans collectively wait for Eminem to respond to Machine Gun Kelly’s diss track “Rap Devil,” Slim Shady is seemingly stirring the pot.
On Thursday (September 6), the Detroit-bred rap machine hit Instagram Live with a video of himself playing Ms. Pac-Man for seven straight minutes.
Some people believe it’s a subliminal aimed at MGK, who has a Ms. Pac-Man tattoo on each shoulder.
Producer Mr. Porter stoked the flames earlier this week when he said Eminem vs. Machine Gun Kelly would be like Thanos vs. Iron Man. In other words, it would be a battle of epic proportions.
Em’s former D12 compadre Bizarre also issued an ominous warning aimed at MGK after “Rap Devil’s” release.
“I think it was good. I think this is the best I ever heard Mr. Kelly rap in his life. I think he stayed up all night and wrote the best possible bars he possibly could, and I think it’s good for Hip Hop. But boy … but boy, the repercussions … ooof … oof. Boy gonna do you something nasty. You better stop playin’ with that boy.”
The whole beef kicked off after Eminem finally addressed MGK’s 2012 comments about his daughter Hailie on the Kamikaze track “Not Alike.”
MGK has been a longtime admirer of Em and often cited him as a major influence on his career. So, when he initially heard the song, he celebrated by popping a bottle of champagne. But on Monday (September 3), Kelly brazenly released “Rap Devil.”
