In a recent visit to Everyday Struggle, MGK revealed that the attack towards Shady came up when he was drunk, but he stands by his words.
It was speculated that the beef started when Eminem called out MGK for his comments on Em’s daughter, Hailie. Then Kelly replied by dropping “Rap Devil” dissing Eminem’s sobriety and age. There have been many blows between the two in the last year, but now MGK has revealed the origins of “Rap Devil” saying:
“We went in the locker room of a place where we were at and I just did it on the spot after that shit released, in a matter of hours dude. I was with Odell [Beckham Jr, Cleveland Browns] the night before, celebrating the $100 million contract thing. I was still just drunk, like, ‘This muthafucka’.”
Kelly added that he wrote the verses before Face-timing them to rapper YBN Cordae. “I played him the first three verses,” Kelly added. “He was like, ‘Yo, this Em you gotta go off.’ I was like, ‘What you mean? I did go off.’ But that’s when I wrote the fourth verse.” Coincidentally or not, YBN Cordae just left Eminem out of his top 5 rappers in an interview with Nick Cannon Mornings. “I’ll give Big L the edge over Eminem, just personally,” Cordae told Nick. “I just fucked with his shit. His cadence and wordplay was just so crazy.”
