It appears that Machine Gun Kelly isn’t the only rapper who has a problem with Eminem. After Em dropped an MGK diss track titled “Killshot” with references to other celebrities, Iggy Azalea hopped on Twitter call him out for being lazy.
“Diss songs shouldn’t be filled with celebrity name drops to pad out lazy bars,” she wrote. “And that’s my unbiased opinion from a girl that watched this [sic] guys set and sung the words in the crowd. I’d think it regardless. One of the greatest to do it, I’m NOT in dispute about that. But I do think the name dropping thing has become a [crutch].”
Azalea didn’t stop there, and proceeded to break down why she felt Eminem’s references to the likes of Rihanna, Diddy, and Azalea herself to be lazy. “So let’s talk about why it’s lazy now; but wasn’t in the earlier work,” she tweeted. “The earlier stuff was crazy, twisted and creative.
This stuff feels more like picking names that fit easily into a rhyme scheme.”
Sensing that her stance would incite backlash on Twitter, Azalea included a disclaimer at the end of her rant. “I am beyond prepared to be trolled for this opinion. Hahahahaha.”
She was right. Eminem fans have wasted little time getting on Azalea for being out of her depth as a rapper. “Iggy Azalea really about to have another 5 minutes of fame complaining that Em mentioned her,” claimed one user. “Iggy Azalea whole career made outta lazy bars so what the f*ck she talking bout?” wrote another.
Others slighted both rappers, saying that the “Killshot” track was so underwhelming that someone of Azalea’s caliber had to be the one to say something about. “Damn you know sh*t was weak when even Iggy Azalea tells u to step it up,” one of them wrote.
