The pair's feud continues with the release of the new track
The track is the latest stage of the pair’s feud. Eminem started the recent spate of diss tracks by calling the rapper out on ‘Kamikaze‘ track ‘Not Alike’. Kelly then responded with ‘Rap Devil’, on which he referenced Eminem’s sobriety and age.
On ‘Killshot’, the Detroit star questions: “How you gonna name yourself after a damn gun and have a man bun?” He also fires back at Kelly’s lines, rapping: “I’m 45 and I’m still outselling you/By 29 I had three albums that had blew.“
Later in the song, he adds: “I’d rather be 80-year-old me than 20-year-old you/Til I’m getting old-aged still can fill a whole page with a 10-year-old’s rage.” Listen to the track below.
Earlier this week, Eminem revealed why he took aim at Kelly on ‘Not Alike’, saying it was “a lot more petty” than the presumption that his rage was provoked by comments Kelly had made about his daughter Hailie.
“The reason that I dissed him is because he got on—first he said, ‘I’m the greatest rapper alive since my favorite rapper banned me from Shade 45,’ or whatever he said, right? Like I’m trying to hinder his career,” he said. “I don’t give a fuck about your career. You think I actually fuckin’ think about you? You know how many fuckin’ rappers that are better than you? You’re not even in the fuckin’ conversation.”
Eminem has also said he “went too far” when he used a homophobic slur against Tyler, The Creator. On ‘Fall’, he rapped: “Tyler create nothin’, I see why you called yourself a f****t, bitch.”
