"I think that the word that I called him on the album on that song was one of the things where I felt like, this might be too far", Em continued.
"I don't give a fuck about your career".
Eminem dissed Kelly on "Not Alike" - off Em's latest album Kamikaze - after Kelly published an inappropriate tweet in 2012 about Eminem's daughter, popular Instagram model Hailie Scott. "But I also get to say whatever the fuck I want about you now". You think I actually fucking think about you? Like I'm trying to hinder his career. Six years ago might seem a long time, but some things aren't forgiven or forgotten very easily - and apparently not if you're Eminem.
After Eminem called out Machine Gun Kelly on "Kamikaze", MGK responded with a track of his own called "Rap Devil" and Eminem described it as "not bad for him - he had some good lines in it". You know how many f***in' rappers that are better than you?
If Dre felt Eminem was going too far it is interesting to see what was left on the cutting room floor.
Many people believed Eminem had gone after MGK because of comments the OH rapper made about his daughter Hailie, but now Eminem has cleared up any confusion and explained exactly why he dropped the diss. "In my quest to hurt him, I realized that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it", he said. However, he explained to Sway that there was a "more petty" reason behind his feud.
Although the Home Office (at that point led by current Prime Minister Theresa May) didn't comment on the specific case, they told the newspaper in a statement: "Coming to the United Kingdom is a privilege, and we expect those who come here to respect our shared values".
