Earlier this week, Eminem reignited the long-running beef between the pair when fans in Brisbane repeatedly asked 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.”
Now, Kelly has responded for the first time and says that Eminem avoided putting his fans to sleep by refusing to play the track.
“ay @Eminem u made the right decision not dropping that weak ass song in concert and putting everyone to sleep,” wrote Kelly on Twitter.

His response came shortly after he reacted angrily to questions about the feud while signing for autographs for fans. In a video posted on YouTube, Kelly is seen meeting fans in Hollywood and appears to angrily jab a piece of paper with a pen when Eminem’s name is mentioned.
The pair were initially embroiled in a high profile feud last year after Eminem called out Kelly on ‘Not Alike’, which featured on his surprise album ‘Kamikaze’. It was thought that the diss was provoked by comments Kelly made about Eminem’s daughter Hailie, although Marshall Mathers later revealed it was started by something “a lot more petty” than that.
While the beef eventually died down, Kelly tried to restart things on New Year’s Eve by posting a clip of the video for his own diss track ‘Rap Devil’.
