Fans aren’t buying the Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly beef

After a few weeks of Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly going after one another, fans are starting to wonder how real their beef is.

The feud got going earlier this month, when Eminem called out MGK on the track “Not Alike” off his surprise album, “Kamikaze,” criticizing him for saying Eminem’s daughter was “hot as f–k” in a 2012 tweet.

Days later, Kelly responded with a diss track of his own, titled “Rap Devil.” That was followed more than a week later by Em’s response, “Kill Shot.”

But as E! News points out, the fans aren’t buying it, especially after noticing how many connections the two rappers and their songs share. In addition to both men being signed to Interscope Records, “Not Alike” and “Rap Devil” both feature production work by Ronnie J.

Ronnie J also has a writing credit on Kelly’s “Rap Devil.”

There’s also the fact that the feud has conveniently managed to drum up publicity for the two in the wake of the “Kamikaze” release and in the lead-up to Kelly’s new EP “Binge,” dropping on Sept. 21.

The publicity is working out a little differently for the two rappers.

The feud’s definitely paid off for Eminem, who saw “Kill Shot” record the largest debut for a rap song in YouTube history, tallying a mind-numbing 38.1 million views in its first 24 hours, according to Business Insider.

Kelly, on the other hand, is currently opening for Fall Out Boy, a fact that just happens to have been omitted from the “Tour” section of his website.
