Eminem surprise released his new full-length effort, Kamikaze, and it was chock full of diss after diss including "Not Alike", which takes aim at Machine Gun Kelly.

"/ Kelly, they'll be putting your name / Next to Ja, next to Benzino, die, motherfucker / Like the last motherfucker sayin' Hailey in vain / Alien brain, you Satanist (yeah)". "I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do at this point right now". Eminem's Kamikaze unleashed a wrath on everyone from DJ Akademiks to Charlamagne Tha God to Joe Budden to Machine Gun Kelly. "As Rick is trying to figure out what's the next step, what's the next mission, Negan kind of needles him, but Rick needs to be able to justify, 'This is why I kept you alive, it's so that we can have a future'".

During the third instalment of the interview which was posted on YouTube on Thursday Sway asks - around the seven minute mark - if a lyric featured on a song called The Ringer (featured on the album) is based on a real incident. "I just felt like there was a mutual respect", Em told Sway of their initial friendship.

Eminem opened up about his feud with Machine Gun Kelly during Thursday's interview with Shay, saying he simply wanted the Cleveland rapper - who dissed him and publicly hit on his daughter - to "shut the f-k up". I don't give a fuck about your career. You know how many f***in' rappers that are better than you? "I'm not gonna be America's punching bag and (let) motherf-ers think it's cool and safe to say whatever they f- they want about me". You're not even in the fucking conversation. "Now I'm in this f***in" weird thing, because I'm like, "I've got to answer this motherf***er'".

Slim Shady added, "Because in my quest to hurt him, I realize that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it".
