After Friday’s (December 18) release of Music To Be Murdered By: Side B, fans honed in on lines from “Gnat” and “Zeus” where Em once more addresses his long-running feud with the Hotel Diablo rapper.
“Fair weather, wishy-washy, she thinks Machine washed me,” Em raps on “Zeus,” while on “Gnat,” he keeps it up rapping, “They come at me with machine guns, like trying to fight off a gnat.”
MGK didn’t waste time responding to Em’s latest barbs towards him, posting a simple message highlighting how weak he felt Em’s disses were.
“those subliminals,” the Bloody Valentine artist wrote alongside a crying laughing emoji and a trash can.
those subliminals 🤣🚮

The two feuded extensively in 2018 with diss records including “Not Alike,” “Rap Devil” and “Killshot.” MGK partly blames his feud with Em as the reason fans didn’t receive his Hotel Diablo album with the same fervor as his previous releases.
“As a Hip Hop album, [Diablo is] flawless front to back, and also a hint at the evolution of how I went into a pop-punk album,” Kelly told Interview. But it was coming off the tail-end of that infamous beef [with Eminem]. So no one wanted to give it the time of day.”
Kelly landed his first No. 1 album in 2020 with the punk rock leaning Tickets To My Downfall.
Early projections of Music To Be Murdered By: Side B on Friday have been revealed and for now, the album is expected to land at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. It would mark the first Em related project since 1999’s The Slim Shady LP to not to debut at the top of the chart.
