Eminem’s feud with rapper Machine Gun Kelly is dominating YouTube’s music charts weeks after their beef began.

Eminem’s single “Killshot,” a diss track directed at Kelly, had the largest debut of a hip-hop song in YouTube’s history earlier this month. This week, the song topped YouTube’s global and US songs charts for a second straight week, the company said on Tuesday. 

Kelly’s single “Rap Devil,” the diss that prompted Eminem’s “Killshot,” came in at No. 3 on YouTube’s US songs chart. This is the song’s third straight week in the chart’s top 5. 

Eminem threw the first overt punch in his beef with Kelly by calling the rapper out on the song “Not Alike” from his new album, “Kamikaze,” which topped the Billboard 200 album chart after its release on August 31.

“I’m talkin’ to you, but you already know who the f— you are, Kelly / I don’t use sublims and sure as f— don’t sneak-diss / But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie,” Eminem rapped on “Not Alike,” in reference to a 2012 tweet Kelly wrote, calling Eminem’s daughter, Hailie, who was then 16 years old, “hot as f—.”

Eminem released “Killshot” 11 days after Kelly dissed him with “Rap Devil” on September 3. 

“Killshot” has over 111 million views on YouTube, while “Rap Devil” has over 114 million views on the site.
