Machine Gun Kelly was always far outgunned by Eminem. A recent roast by fast-food chain Wendy's is proof that he was more interested in fame.
Unlike Eminem, Machine Gun Kelly is not a rapper. He’s an entertainer.
Being an entertainer isn’t a bad thing, on the surface. Madonna is an entertainer, Lady Gaga is an entertainer, and Cher is an entertainer — to name just a few.
But let’s not act like being an entertainer is the same thing as being a rapper — because Eminem, with whom he’s been feuding for as long as anyone can remember, has, uh, outgunned MGK from the very beginning.
When you get owned by Wendy’s on Twitter, it’s safe to say your rap career is a bust.
Eminem has been roasting Machine Gun Kelly since, at least, 2018. While many rap fans believe Kelly (real name: Colson Baker) had the upper hand with his track “Rap Devil,” The Real Slim Shady is thought to have killed the beef once and for all with his track “Killshot,” which you can hear below.
That hurt our feelings, and it wasn’t even directed at us.
You would think that this would lead others to leave the beef alone — especially since Marshall Mathers has proved that he can out-rap nearly anyone, anywhere.
Yet, that hasn’t stopped Wendy’s from trolling the bejesus out of Machine Gun Kelly with — what else? — an Eminem reference.
To be fair and equitable to all things, Eminem always wanted to be a rapper, whereas Machine Gun Kelly always seemed to be more interested in the Hollywood aspect of things. From his pop-punk leanings to his Hollywood fauxmance with a starlet, Colson Baker was always more interested in being famous than he was in spitting 16.
And that’s fine.
But let’s not pretend we’re in the same league as Eminem, if this is what we’re going to do, alright Machine Gun Kelly? Alright then.
