Is Iggy Azalea getting sucked into the Eminem vs Machine Gun Kelly feud?
The Australian rapper, who Eminem called a 'ho' on his latest MGK diss track 'Killshot', has fired back at Em, calling the single full of 'lazy bars.'
Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock now knows that the rap world's hottest new feud is between Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly. The two have been shooting diss tracks at each other, with each reply getting more intense. The latest offering from Eminem came in the form of the single 'Killshot', a 4-minute rebuttal to Machine Gun Kelly's previous diss track 'Rap Devil', which in turn was a reply to Em's 'Kamikaze' album cut 'Not Alike'.
While taking apart MGK's jabs methodically and addressing each one with an apt comeback, Eminem didn't hesitate to slip in a few other names from the industry, as has been the case ever since he dropped his latest surprise album 'Kamikaze'.
One of the people who served as collateral damage to Em's reply on 'Killshot' is Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, who Em calls a 'ho' on his new track. The line goes: “Next to Taylor Swift and that Iggy ho, you about to really blow.”
Apparently, Azalea didn't take too kindly to being collateral damage and judging by her response, she's clearly on team MGK right now. “Diss songs shouldn’t be filled with celebrity name drops to pad out lazy bars,” Iggy tweeted, in response to Eminem's 'Killshot'.
She had more to say, but maintained a fairly respectful tone while she voiced her opinion. She admitted to being a fan of Eminem but also said that the iconic rapper is simply name dropping to come up with bars that rhyme. As expected, the 'Black Widow' singer invoked the wrath of thousands of Eminem fans for the comment, but she was more than prepared for it, tweeting: "I am beyond prepared to be trolled for this opinion. "

Also let’s talk about why it’s lazy now; but wasn’t in the earlier work.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) September 14, 2018
The earlier stuff was crazy, twisted and creative.
This stuff feels more like picking names that fit easily into a rhyme scheme. 🤷♀️
Did Iggy Azalea just upgrade herself from being collateral damage to a potential target for Em? We'll have to wait for Slim Shady's next reply to see if that's the case. And judging by how things are going right now, we can surely expect at least a couple more finely worded verses to fly from both ends of the feud.
Meanwhile, Machine Gun Kelly had some words of his own to share about 'Killshot'. On Friday night, Kelly took a dig at how long it took for Eminem to roll out his response, tweeting a picture of judges from 'Dancing With the Stars' holding up scorecards with the number 6. “2 weeks and 3 interviews later…” he captioned the post, in reference to Eminem's multi-part interview with Sway in which he discusses the reason for taking aim at Kelly on Kamikaze among other things.
Hours after the tweet, MGK also revealed he's dropping an EP, titled 'BINGE', set for release on September 21. Something tells us that the EP is not going to ignore Eminem. Exactly what Kelly has in store for the 'Rap God' will be revealed this Friday. These are exciting times! Brace yourselves!
