Machine Gun Kelly has caused a stir in the hip-hop community with his latest freestyle rap over Jay-Z and Eminem's classic "Renegade" beat. The Cleveland rapper used the opportunity to take a swipe at fellow artist Jack Harlow.
In the freestyle, MGK raps, "I've been killing you motherf***ers for a decade/ It's called the underground because we're stuck in the basement." He then goes on to say, "Jack Harlow, you're not even the best rapper in Louisville."
The diss comes as a surprise to some fans, as MGK and Jack Harlow have never been known to have any public beef. However, it's not uncommon for rappers to use freestyles to call out their peers.

The "Renegade" beat has a special place in hip-hop history, as it was famously used by Jay-Z and Eminem on their 2001 collaboration. The song has been considered a classic and is often referenced in discussions about the greatest rap songs of all time.
MGK's use of the beat for his freestyle has generated mixed reactions from fans and fellow artists. Some praised the rapper for his skills, while others criticized him for disrespecting the classic beat and using it for a diss track.
Jack Harlow has yet to respond to the diss, and it's unclear if he will address it at all. However, the incident has sparked conversations about the state of rap beef and the role of freestyles in the culture.
MGK is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of beef with other artists, including Eminem himself. The two rappers had a well-publicized feud in 2018, which culminated in MGK's diss track "Rap Devil" and Eminem's response "Killshot."
It remains to be seen if MGK's diss will lead to any further drama or if it will simply be brushed off as a passing moment in hip-hop history. But one thing's for sure: the "Renegade" beat will continue to hold a special place in the hearts of hip-hop fans and artists alike.
