When Eminem released his much-awaited Kamikaze, he had a diss track in it. Machine Gun Kelly once commented about Eminem then-underage daughter Hailie that she was hot. Eminem released the song Not Alike where he responded in a harsh manner to MGK’s statement. MGK (Machine Gun Kelly): rapper from Ohio who responded with his song ‘Rap Devil’ provoking the “Rap God” Eminem which resulted in Eminem releasing ‘Kill Shot’ This feud was the talk of the town a few months ago and resulted in a lot of growth for both the rappers and the fans enjoyed their music.
Also, Eminem in the meantime released his ‘Illuminati song’ Venom.
Closer home, we saw a similar rivalry in the previous month between Emiway and Raftaar.
This all began when Raftaar in an interview to Raaj Jones said that Rappers like Emiway and Lil Golu are not earning much from music as he is but he also said that Emiway will build an empire of his own.
Emiway took this statement way too personally and released “Samajh mein aaya kya?” He mentioned “Maangne ko paisa mein ghar tere aya kya… Maine janta kamaya chote, samajh mein aaya kya”
For all those who don’t know who Emiway is, well he is a 22-year old rapper from Wadala named Shahrukh Sheikh.
Raftaar then responded to Emiway’s diss with ‘Sheikh Chilli’ where he mentions that “Tu hoga high mera bhai, jo jo tune sunke interview akal nahin chalai. Also, he mentioned about Emiway’s struggling days where he himself helped the rapper come up. This is what he mentioned, “Tu milne ko aaya tha, maine bulaya tha. Saath bithaya tha, khaana khilaya tha. Bandra ke studio mein booking karaya tha.” Raftaar made it clear with his music video that if it wasn’t him then Emiway wouldn’t have reached this far in his career. He paid his bills, his rents and made Emiway meet big labels.
Emiway with his Halloween special released “Giraftaar” where he openly says that Raftaar is a commercial rapper and doesn’t deserve a place in hip-hop rap.
I feel Emiway has build up arrogance within him and has forgotten all those who helped him rise in his career. I feel if it wasn’t Raftaar then Emiway wouldn’t have been this big a-rapper.
Moving ahead, Raftaar then released Anime Hentai where he mentioned Emiway making all vulgar music to gather fame. This song had some good bars and verses where he took Emiway’s case.
Emiway being emiway didn’t stop and released Emiway Bantai Khatm where he abuses Raftaar and goes below the belt and takes it on him. One of his lyrics are “Raftaar ke Bantai ne et bhaga dala”
Ranveer Singh in the meanwhile posted a video on Instagram where he requested both the rappers to take peace among themselves.
I feel that Raftaar’s interview was taken in a very wrong way by Emiway and then this brawl happened. But as a matter of fact, both the rappers gained a lot of fame due to their diss’ Emiway and Raftaar both crossed over 1M+ subscribers on YouTube. Emiway was an underground rapper brought into mainstream by Raftaar and now Emiway releases a diss on him, is that fair? Tell me!
This entire diss thing gets the fan very agitated for the opposite rappers and people even think that it was a very well-planned marketing move.
I mean the truth is only for them to decide but brawls as such gets a lot of fame for both the parties.
