Performing at St. Andrews Hall, Detroit two nights ago, Machine Gun Kelly decided to lyrically toast the City’s finest rap export – Eminem. Taking time out during the afternoon of the show to join the fans on the steps of St. Andrews Hall queuing early to see him, MGK [accompanied by two guitarists] met with fans and spat an acoustic version of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”
Not stopping there. During the evening’s actual performance, the Bad Boy signee had his DJ spin the instrumental to Mobb Deep‘s “Shook Ones Pt. II.” Mimicking Eminem’s famous final battle taken from his 8 Mile movie, [over the same beat] MGK spat the entire battle rap bar for bar in honour of arguably one of the genre’s greatest emcees in his home town.
