Eminem’s recently released single, “Killshot,” a diss track
directed at the rapper Machine Gun Kelly, had the largest debut
of any hip-hop song in the history of YouTube, the company said
in a release on Tuesday. 

The official audio of “Killshot” earned a record 38.1 million
views on YouTube in the first 24 hours of its release on
Friday. It now has over 72 million views on the site. 

YouTube said “Killshot” also had the third highest debut of any
song in the site’s history, and the track is currently on top of
the site’s US trending

Eminem threw the first 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 in the
song “Rap
,” in which Kelly accused the Detroit rapper of trying
to hinder his career by banning him from the Sirius XM channel
Shade 45, which Eminem owns.

Kelly’s “Rap Devil,” released on September 3 on WorldStarHipHop’s
YouTube page, currently has over 95 million views.

Eminem explained why he dissed Kelly with “Killshot” in an interview
with Sway Calloway last week:

“The reason that I dissed him is because he got on—first he said,
‘I’m the greatest rapper alive since my favorite rapper banned me
from Shade 45,’ or whatever he said, right? Like I’m trying to
hinder his career.’ I don’t give a f— about your career. You
think I actually f—in’ think about you? You know how many
f—in’ rappers that are better than you? You’re not even in the
f—in’ conversation.”
