After opening for Fallout Boy at Florida’s Amway Center on Monday, Machine Gun Kelly took to Instagram to share his thoughts on Eminem’s diss track, posting a photo of himself onstage with his back to the crowd, wearing a Killshot t-shirt, and flipping the bird. At first glance, the photo looks dope but after discovering that MGK was actually booed offstage, the whole thing just seems, well, pathetic.

Shortly after the photo was posted, the aftermentioned video of the Cleveland rapper’s performance surfaced, painting a completely different picture than the one the MGK shared on Instagram.
Even though the Eminem-Machine Gun Kelly beef appears to have just begun, by pulling this bush league stunt and getting caught, MGK has indirectly opened himself up to even more ridicule, something Em will surely take advantage of.

The 15 Greatest Rappers of All Time
15. Lauryn Hill
AKA: L Boogie
Region: East Coast
Resume: The Score (The Fugees) (1996)
Lauryn Hill may be most well known for her multi-platinum 1998 album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill but her early work with Fugees already had her in contention for the best female rapper of all time. Hailing from South Orange, New Jersey, Hill flirted with acting in the early 90s and landed roles on the TV show As the World Turns and the 1993 film Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit where she showcased her soulful singing skills. She joined the Fugees shortly after and released the albums Blunted on Reality in 1994 and the Grammy Award-winning The Score in 1996.
Lauryn’s ability to sing beautifully, combined with a steady flow of sharply delivered rhymes, makes her a talent the likes of which we’ve never seen before or since. Her wide array of skills are perhaps best displayed with her work on the track “Ready Or Not” where she is not only responsible for one of the 90s most memorable hooks, but also raps with the distinctive flow that has her “defecating on the microphone.” If not for her public breakdown in the late 90s and a subsequent prison stint, Lauryn Hill would most likely have been on track to become the greatest selling female artist of all time.
