At some point in the last day or so, Young Thug’s pretty good new album So Much Fun changed, subtly but undeniably. The third track, “Ecstasy,” a shitkicking ode to getting high out of your mind on various illicit substances including but not limited to MDMA, used to be a solo Thug song. Now, it … More »
The universe has been expanding for approximately 13.8 billion years, and ever since the advent of recorded sound, popular music has followed suit. New galaxies of sound are constantly springing up and spreading out, intermingling and morphing and exploding. An adventurous music fan is never bored. Yet this past decade the pop mainstream has exhibited … More »
Can you believe it’s been less than 10 years since Miley Cyrus released “Party In The U.S.A.”? The song, which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became her bridge from the Disney Channel to a grownup mainstream audience, feels like it has existed for several lifetimes. It was in fact released in August … More »
Who are all these people? This was my first time seeing the 1975, and I was shocked at the sea of humanity in front of me, packed together closely with no easy path to the front. Granted, the Manchester band are huge in their native UK, and they’ve been playing Columbus from the beginning, working … More »
It’s hard to imagine a less of-the-cultural-moment movie than The Dirt, the story of Mötley Crüe’s rise to fame and fortune. The 2001 book on which the film (out today on Netflix) is based, and about which its “as-told-to” guy Neil Strauss is contractually forbidden to speak, depicts the members of the group, in their … More »

After taking aim at Die Antwoord frontman Ninja on Kamikaze track, “The Greatest,” Eminem has locked, loaded, and fired a “KILLSHOT” at rapper Machine Gun Kelly, another target from Em’s recent surprise LP drop. Eminem originally targeted Kelly on Kamikaze‘s “Not Alike.” Kelly quickly rebutted the callout with a diss aimed back at Eminem on “Rap Devil.” “KILLSHOT” is Eminem’s scathing response to MGK’s returned volley, and as to be expected, the song is a coarsely worded verbal assault that essentially ends the conflict in four minutes.
“I’m 45 and I’m still outselling you,” Em spits, “I’d rather be 80-year-old me than 20-year-old you.” Eminem taunts MGK in his claim that he has “more fans” in MGK’s city than the Cleveland rapper himself, before taunting, “what good is a f****ng machine gun when it’s out of ammo?” The no holds barred diss track even goes after MGK’s man bun — the veteran Detroit emcee spares no punches. Eminem raps, in a nod to the single’s artwork, a sketch of MGK, complete with the aforementioned man bun and glaring crosshairs on the junior rapper’s face. If anything is for sure, it’s that Eminem just discharged another hollow point, and he’s not only got menacing aim, but plenty of ammo in the chamber.
Back in 2012, the Cleveland rapper Machine Gun Kelly tweeted that Eminem’s daughter, then 17, was hot. Eminem held a grudge. Two weeks ago, Eminem came out with the surprise album Kamikaze, and he went after Machine Gun Kelly on the song “Not Alike.” Machine Gun Kelly returned fire a few days later … More »
