In 2007, he released his first mixtape "Stamp of Approval," and by 2012, he released five more teips, the most successful of which was "Lace Up," released as an album in 2012 after signing a contract with Bad Boy Records. The release sold over 150,000 copies, and the tracks "Wild Boy" and "Invincible" became hits. In 2013, he released the new mixtape "Black Flag," highly praised by rapper fans. 2015 was immediately remembered by two releases - the pre-album mixtape and, in fact, the album General Admission itself, which, unlike the first solo album, cost fewer guests and a larger and more diverse number of tracks. After kosher 2015, Kells took a tour of the USA and Europe, after which he set to work on the new album "Bloom, "which was released in early 2017.

Kells' new single is the expected return to form after fairly mediocre pop singles. He again drops the biting lines, comparing himself to the devil, but not repeating the story with "Rap Devil," last year's conflict track, which started beef with Eminem.

A day earlier, Kells shared a charming cover of Billie Eilish's "Ocean Eyes." Now he is releasing a track with a recitative, but with a recognizable pop-rap instrumental with live drums.

Rap Devil (Eminem Diss)

It was clear to everyone that the artists touched by Eminem in their latest album "Kamikaze" would start releasing reciprocal diss. The first was Machine Gun Kelly with the track "Rap Devil". The name obviously refers to Em's hit "Rap God."

In the dissertation, MGK accuses the offender of hiding behind the guards and bits of Dr. Dre, does not forget to mention his recent albums, which, according to Kelly, came out very mediocre, and urges Eminem to pack up and stop recalling comments six years ago.
