Today We’ll be talking about the number 1 charted song on the mind of geniuses everywhere: Machine Gun Kelly’s “Rap Devil”. In 2012, upon seeing a picture of Em’s daughter Hailie (aged sixteen at the time) Mgk went to twitter saying she was “...Hot as (expletive)...”. Eminem responded with the the Kamikaze song “Not Alike”, pushing MGK to release Rap Devil.
Machine Gun Kelly took to twitter saying “I didn’t do it for me, but for my generation (of rap) as a whole.” And now I want to talk about the song itself. Mainly the chorus. “ I’m sick of your sweatpants and corny hats,( let’s talk about it ). I’m sick of you being rich and you still mad( let’s talk about it ). Both of us single dads from the midwest, we can talk about it, or we could get gully, I’ll size up your body and put some white chalk around it.”
I’ll break down the whole part for y’all. The first bar “I’m sick of your sweatpants and corny hats,” Is exactly that. I don’t really think I have to explain that wearing clothes larger than your biggest D12 member is annoying to MGK. His second line “I’m sick of you being rich and you’re still mad,” Most albums during Eminem’s career have talked about how he is sad because his wife hates him, his mom becoming a problem, and his everlasting battle with drugs.
Do I really need to hear it? Let me guess, another album about poor me, I'm so famous that it's ruined my rich little life, and I'm such a tortured artist. Let me make music about it and my tragic love life…
Even Vice Chairman of Aftermath Records, Steve Berman acknowledged this in a skit in Em’s “℞ELAPSƎ” album released May 15, 2009, wherein response to Em's saying he's releasing a new album, Steve had said...
Third and fourth line: “Both of us single dads from the midwest, we can talk about it, or we could get gully, I’ll size up your body and put some white chalk around it.” meaning they could settle this like fathers and talk, or one of them would end in a body bag.
Thanks for watching Ǝ news. Stay tuned for our next exciting episode!
