You know how many f-king rappers are better than you?

Speaking to American radio host Sway Calloway, Eminem revealed, "Somebody sends me a screenshot of his Twitter and it says "had some s**t to get my chest, you just rap you're not God", which was a reference to Eminem's song "Rap God". "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".

Eminem explained that he kept coming back to that word when putting the album together because he didn't "feel right" about it, so his team "spun the word back" to obscure it, but he now realizes everyone could still understand what he's saying.

On the controversial track, Eminem rapped: "Tyler create nothin", I see why you called yourself a (f*ggot)/It's not just "cause you lack attention/ It's because you worship D12's balls, you're sack-religious".

"And every time I do that it makes that person - as irrelevant as people say I am in hip-hop - I make them bigger by getting into this thing where I'm like, 'I wanna destroy him, but I also don't wanna make him bigger, ' because now you're a fucking enemy". "He's got some good lines in it".

His other targets included Machine Gun Kelly, who he blasted on track Not Alike for calling his daughter Hailie "hot".

In previous clips of the chat Eminem spoke about the reasons behind his beef with Machine Gun Kelly. I'm like, 'What the f***? The reason I dissed him is actually a lot more petty than that.

Then he talked about the idea behind his surprise new album, Kamikaze which he explained as: "What if I give everybody my opinion, about them?" "Now I'm in this f***in" weird thing, because I'm like, "I've got to answer this motherf***er'".
