Eminem Speaks On His Issues With Joe Budden & Machine Gun Kelly

By HHL JT

In the second part of his interview with Sway, Eminem broke down his issues with Joe Budden and Machine Gun Kelly.

First Budden:

"Me and Joe Budden aren't, you know, we're not friends like that. We didn't go to the same fuckin' high school. You know what I'm sayin?" Eminem said. "I get that part. 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."

Eminem also discussed Budden's theory that Em and Paul Rosenberg were the only ones to make money on Slaughterhouse, Shady Records now dead supergroup featuring Budden, KXNG Crooked, Royce da 5’9″, and Joell Ortiz.

"Next thing I hear Joe about, "Who got that money?' The album -- I hate to say this because I think the guys are super fucking talented -- but the album didn't do much to even recoup the first budget. Then we spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on the second album that never came out. I don't know if I ever made a dime off Slaughterhouse. I don't care if I made nothing. I believed in them. I wanted them to huge. I wanted a group that lyrical to just bust through everything. It definitely hurt my feelings when the album didn't do good .. To this day, me and Paul are like 'what the fuck happened.'"

After speaking on Budden, Eminem talks about MGK. According to Shady, he wasn't so much bothered that Kelly mentioned his daughter in a Tweet. But what did bother him was that MGK did press around the controversy that followed and mentioned it in a Tech N9ne track. Em told Sway he was especially perturbed that Kelly told everyone he personally blacklisted him over the Tweet because, according to Em, he didn't do that at all.

Em broke down his dilemma about what to do with MGK.

"Now I'm in this weird thing. Because I'm like, I have to answer this person," Eminem explained. "I want to destroy him, but I also don't want to make him bigger [by mentioning him]. Now, you're a fucking enemy. I'll leave it at that. I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do at this point right now."

He did concede that Kelly's "Rap God" diss was pretty good.
