“Call a Uber, turn on the radio, imagine hearing me. ‘Him & I’’s on, mad you’re listening to Halsey sing to me."

There's been some pretty show-stopping celebrity feuds over the years; Taylor and Katy, Taylor and Kimye, Paris and Nicole, Vin Diesel and The Rock, KJ Apa and shirts... but none have been more worthy of their own season of Ryan Murphy's Feud than that of G-Eazy and Machine Gun Kelly.

Yes, friends, the two rappers (and grown men) are currently embroiled in a huge beef over their similar aesthetics and their common interest in Halsey (who they have both previously dated) and now they're trading insults over diss tracks and Instagram captions.

Machine Gun Kelly threw the first punch last week when he laid down a freestyle on HOT 97’s Funkmaster Flex Show. In his lyrics over Drake’s 'Nonstop' he raps: “Let's just keep it G, only Easy I fuck with is E // I seen he’s dyed his hair and got a hanging earring // I fucked his girl now he looks like me this shit overbearing // How dare him, I dare him, don't think about comparing // Turn that frat rap off I'm getting sick of hearing.”

MGK is, of course, referring to Gerald's new bleach blonde locks - which he claims he copied from him because he was of course, the first man in history to dye his hair blonde - and the fact that he also used to date Halsey before G-Eazy. #MachineGunPETTY.


Not to be out done, G-Eazy then responded to the freestyle with an ENTIRE diss track. On "Bad Boy," he fires back at MGK's "obsession" with him and raps: "MGK please stop trolling me, get over me // You wanna be me, you’re mad that you’re not as big as me.”

He then continues: “Call a Uber, turn on the radio, imagine hearing me / ‘Him & I’’s on, mad you’re listening to Halsey sing to me." Savage! He even calls MGK a "mini-me" and threatens to hit him if he dares disrespect Halsey again. ("Disrespect her again, I’ll smack you, I’m not a boy.”)

After dropping the track, G-Eazy then posted pictures of himself and Halsey, reunited on stage for the first time since taking some time away from their relationship back in July. The pair took to the stage in New Jersey on Aug 31 to perform 'Him & I' in their first joint performance since the split - and it was QUITE the show.

Clearly riled up, MGK also posted a side by side picture of himself and Gerald alongside the caption "I fucked his girl now he looks like me this shit overbearing" before he swiftly deleted the words. He left up his response to "Bad Boy" though, in the form of three hashtags... and he is PRESSED about it.

🤦‍♂️ #miniME #stoplyingaboutFINLAND #alllyourfriendsknow 😂😂😂
