People Are Now Saying Machine Gun Kelly Is Actually Stan's Younger Brother
| Last updated
Unless you've been on some sort of social media hiatus, you will have noticed the ongoing feud between Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly.
So far their spat has seen a social media war of words, two massively viral diss tracks and some rather speculative fan theories.
The most far-fetched came earlier this week when a number of fans argued that MGK is in fact Stan in Eminem's 2000 song of the same name. You know who we mean - the crazed Slim Shady fan who ended up killing his pregnant wife and himself after the rapper didn't respond to his letters. Yeah, that guy.
This theory was supported by unearthed posts from the 28-year-old rapper singing Em's praises and calling him "the greatest to ever walk the face of the Earth" back in 2010 and was boosted by one posted in 2013 when MGK himself said: "I'm an Eminem 'Stan' for sure."
WRONG, because following on from this theory, the fandom is now trying to claim that MGK is Stan's little brother in the same music video. You know, the little kid that Stan writes about in the letters and can be seen at the end looking forlorn at his brother's headstone?
One Facebook user posted a screenshot of the kid along with the comment: "I think what everyone is thinking this may be MGK and he would of been 10 years old at the time makes sense when you listen to the song and hear the lyrics at the end."
The lyrics we think he's referring to are the ones in 'Stan' where Em finally replies to the character, stating, "here's an autograph for your brother, I wrote it on the Starter cap". Savvy listeners will have noticed that in 'Killshot' - his diss track reply to MGK's 'Rap Devil' - one of the initial lines goes: "Here's that autograph for your daughter, I wrote it on a Starter cap".
There are certainly connections to the song and the current situation unfolding between Eminem and MGK, particularly since the early tweets seem to suggest the latter is bitter that Em never took notice of him a.k.a. never answered his letters.
Now he has answered, all hell has broken loose. What's next in the MGK vs. Eminem saga? Who knows, but what we are certain of is that it's not over just yet.
