Like Eminem, Machine Gun Kelly’s feud with fellow rapper G-Eazy is longstanding. Per Billboard, it started when G-Eazy broke up with Halsey, and pictures of Halsey hanging out with Kelly started making the rounds on social media. Halsey alleged that the pictures were old and that she was single at the time, but Kelly put their relationship on blast during a 2018 interview with “The Breakfast Club.” When asked by host Charlamagne tha God whether he was ever intimate with “[G-Eazy’s] girl,” a.k.a. Halsey, Kelly replied in the affirmative. “Absolutely,” he said. Halsey responded to the interview on Twitter in three words. “How absolutely pathetic,” she wrote.
As for G-Eazy, he didn’t take kindly to Kelly’s comments about Halsey, especially because he and Halsey later ended up reconciling. In 2018, G-Eazy dropped his epic diss track, “Bad Boy,” which was packed with references to Kelly and Halsey. “MGK please stop trolling me, get over me/ You wanna be me, you’re mad that you’re not as big as me/ I’m everywhere … Call a[n] Uber, turn on the radio, imagine hearing me / ‘Him & I’s on, mad you’re listening to Halsey sing to me,” he rapped. The last line name drops Halsey’s song “Him & I,” in which she duets with G-Eazy, and the two sing about their undying love for one another. The lyrics feature epic proclamations, like, “In the end, it’s him and I … We got that love, the crazy kind.”
