Eminem recently sat down for an in-depth interview with Sway to discuss a range of topics. For the first part of the interview, Eminem focused solely on his new project Kamikaze. For part two, he finally addressed his beef with Joe Budden, Machine Gun Kelly and why Slaughterhouse is in limbo.
Throughout the interview, Eminem admits that he is no longer friends with Joe Budden due to harsh comments surrounding Revival.
“Me and Joe Budden aren’t, you know, we’re not friends like that. We didn’t go to the same fucking high school. You know what I’m saying? I get that part,” Em explains. “But when I’m out here, flying around to different places and doing interviews and trying to use my platform to pump up Slaughterhouse every chance I get, and you’re using your platform to try to trash me.”
Later in the interview, Eminem also addresses MGK and “Rap Devil,” the rebuttal.
“You know you go down a fucking wormhole of YouTube? So I see, ‘Machine Gun Kelly talks about Eminem’s daughter.’ So I’m like, ‘What the fuck?’ Then he starts doing a press run about Hailie,” he remembers. “I’m like, ‘What the fuck?’ Yo, my man better chill. So, that’s not why I dissed him. The reason I dissed him is actually a lot more petty than that.”
