“News flash Em. I heard the album and because I think you don’t really remember all the members that were in the group, I don’t think you really know our history. Let me tell you what Joe Budden has thought this entire time. I’ve been better than you this entire f**king decade. Huh? Can’t say that back then. Can’t say that back then. But in my rapper brain, I’m a content n*gga. You’ve gotta say something. You have not said anything for the better part of a whole f*cking decade. You have rhymed a bunch of words.”
On Em’s new “Fall” record, he goes directly at Budden and makes reference to past domestic violence instances.
“Somebody tell Budden before I snap, he better fasten it/Or have his body bag get zipped/The closest thing he’s had to hits is smackin’ b*tches/And don’t make me have to give it back to Akademiks/Say this sh*t is trash again, I’ll have you twisted/Like you had it when you thought you had me slippin’ at the telly” (“Fall”)
Producer Mr. Porter believes Em is going to inevitably respond to Machine Gun Kelly’s “Rap Devil” battle record.
“Right now, he in there working. We doing something else right now, but trust me, we’ll get to it. I’ll tell you this: I wouldn’t wanna be him. It’s great that you took that opportunity and did that, hey, kudos to you, good for you. The one thing that I’m worried about – you remember when [Marvel Cinematic Universe character] Thanos threw that whole planet at Iron Man?” (Skoglund16 TV)
This week, D12’s Bizarre weighed-in on MGK blasting away at Em with his “Rap Devil” diss song and warned him about what’s to come.
“Yo, everybody keeps hitting me up, asking me if I’ve heard the Machine Gun Kelly diss. Yes, I’ve heard it. I think it was good. I think this is the best I’ve ever heard Mr. Kelly rap in his life. I think he stayed up all night. Wrote the best possible bars he could possibly could and I think it’s good for hip-hop. But boy, but boy, the repercussions. Ohhh. Ohhhhhhh. Ohhhhh. The boy gonna do you something nasty. Y’all better stop playing
