The diss track marks Eminem’s biggest response to date in his ongoing feud with Kelly.
It comes after Eminem initially stoked the flames on surprise album ‘Kamikaze’, leading Kelly to respond with his own diss, ‘Rap Devil’. In turn, Em then returned with ‘Killshot’.
Although the quality and ferocity of the track has divided fans, the attention surrounding it is proving to be a success.
The track is reportedly in line for the No.3 slot on the US Billboard Hot 100, marking Eminem’s 20th top 10 single on the Hot 100.
It also made huge waves on YouTube, achieving the biggest debut of a hip-hop song in YouTube history.
The track’s lyrics also attracted headlines – after Eminem seemingly accused P Diddy of ordering Tupac’s murder.
“Killshot, I will not fail, I’m with the Doc still/But this idiot’s boss pops pills and tells him he’s got skills/But, Kells, the day you put out a hit’s the day Diddy admits/That he put the hit out that got Pac killed,” Eminem raps on the track.
In turn, Joe Budden claimed that Diddy was aware of the reference – and he’s now planning his response.
