Are MGK and Eminem having a Rap Beef between them?
Rap beef between rappers are corny to write and sounds terrible as it has a negative impact on the fans. MGK and Eminem are making the headlines for having a beef between them. The beef is believed to have started when Eminem took cheeky shots about MGK on the song Not Alike. The slim shady rapper went back to 2012 to dislike MGK’s about his daughter to be the reason for the feud.
However, MGK responded to that with his diss track, Rap Devil, painting their feud as a generational struggle as the past and the future. This sounds absurd as the reason for their dispute is not that reasonable. The fans are waiting for Eminem’s take on that, but we hope the rappers sort things between them.
Dating, Girlfriend, or Married?
MGK is currently single but was dating before. In 2015, he was dating Amber Rose. Moreover, before her, he hooked up with Rachel Star.
In July 2018, a story of MGK dating Halsey surfaced. The web sources also reported them to be spending quality time. However, Halsey denied the news by tweeting about being single.
