Eminem dismisses 'pitiful' Machine Gun Kelly diss track 'Rap Devil', explains Joe Budden relationship

Eminem has responded to Machine Gun Kelly's diss track 'Rap Devil', condescendingly calling it "pitiful" and telling him to "shut the f**k up".

In a video interview with fellow hip-hop star Sway, the 'Lose Yourself' hitmaker opens up about the history of his feud with Kelly (MGK), as well as expanding on why he also targeted Joe Budden on Kamikaze.

MGK infamously called Eminem's then-16-year-old daughter Hailie "hot as f**k" in 2012, before alleging the older rapper stymied his career as a result.

"He's acting like I'm trying to hinder his career. I don't give a f**k about your career!" Eminem tells MGK, via Sway.

"You think I actually f**king think about you? Do you know how many rappers are better than you? You're not even in the f**king conversation.

"Now I'm in this f**king weird thing because I'm like, I gotta answer this motherf**ker, I want to destroy him - but I also don't want to make him bigger, because now you're a f**king enemy."

He claims he didn't see MGK's tweet about his daughter until years after it was published, and was angered by the publicity he felt the younger rapper later wrought from it.

Eminem concedes 'Rap Devil' is "not bad, for [MGK]" with some "good lines in it", but he refutes the claims made in it.

"I ain't never made a f**king call to Diddy," the 'Rap God' hitmaker says.

"Never happened. That didn't feel like a diss to me, it just felt, like, pitiful."

Eminem says he'll "sit back and wait for a second" before firing off a response to 'Rap Devil', but says he already had a couple tracks in the pipeline that Dr Dre worried were "going too far".

"I'll leave it at that. I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do at this point right now."

Eminem also talked about his feud with Budden, saying he was hurt his former associate was so critical of his 2017 album, Revival.

"I've never got in a f**king interview and been like, 'Joe Budden's shit is f**king trash'," says Eminem.

"[To claim my track 'Untouchable' was] the worst song you've ever heard in your life - have you listened to your own shit?"

The comments about Budden and MGK were made in the second part of a multiple episode release of Sway's interview with Eminem, which teases part three at its conclusion.
