The rapper, who is currently on tour in Australia, was performing in Brisbane last night (February 20) when he made the comments.
Fans in attendance at the city’s QSAC Stadium at one point broke into a chant asking Eminem to perform ‘Killshot’, on which the star rapped about his rival: “I’d rather be an 80-year-old me than 20-year-old you.” Responding to the request, he said: “I would, but I can’t give that cocksucker any more fucking light.”
After thanking the audience for “making us feel like family”, he asked them “make some noise for fucking yourself and make nothing for MGK.” You can watch fan-shot footage of the moment below.
The pair were embroiled in a headline-grabbing feud last year after Eminem called out Kelly on ‘Not Alike’, which featured on his surprise album ‘Kamikaze’. It was speculated the diss was provoked by comments Kelly had made about Eminem’s daughter Hailie, although Marshall Mathers later revealed it was over something “a lot more petty” than that.
The beef eventually died down but Kelly tried to restart things on New Year’s Eve by posting a clip of the video for his own diss track ‘Rap Devil’. “Just to piss y’all off one more time before the year’s over,” he captioned the post. “y’all still BIG mad ♂️ fuck rap god im the rap devil goodbye 2018.”
Earlier this month, Eminem praised comedian Chris D’Elia’s impression of him after a clip of the Undateable star impersonating the rapper went viral. “4 a second I actually thought it WAS me!!” Eminem wrote on Twitter as he shared the video.
Meanwhile, Machine Gun Kelly announced in December he had scrapped all the material from his upcoming album and was restarting the record from scratch. He is also set to play drummer Tommy Lee in the upcoming Motley Crüe biopic, The Dirt, and will feature on a new track by the band for the soundtrack.
