Eminem is no stranger to controversy, so when he surprise-dropped his 10th album Kamikaze last week, the drama and rapper beef fell right into place. But perhaps what the emcee wouldn’t have guessed at are accusations that he ripped off beats from one of rap’s youngest players.
Last week, Twitter user @konrad_sanders pointed out the similarities between the tracks.

Ok maybe its just me. This sounds more like Bad and Boujee by Migos. But hey. none of my business.

And still others thought Eminem’s familiar beats were an intentional dig at the newest generation of rappers.
How dumb are you this whole album was to make fun and diss all these new age rappers and plus that specific song was supposed to mimic how they rap

Every song sounds like that. Every migos song, every soundcloud trash song, every song locals stream HAS THAT BEAT AND STYLE OF RAPPING. Next

For what it’s worth, Bregoli, wasn’t bothered by the comparison. “I’ll take that compliment,” she tweeted.

As Newsweek notes, Bregoli seems too preoccupied with beefs with her female “haters” to be concerned with an emcee who probably has T-shirts older than her.
“Females are such haters,” Brelogi told Genius in a recent interview. “I don’t think I’m a girl. I don’t know what I am because I’m not like these bitches. I’m not a hater. Girls always want competition and it’s just like if you’re ugly, you’re ugly? Stop being a hater.”
Eminem has bigger problems, too. Machine Gun Kelly this week dropped a diss track aimed at the emcee in response to Kamikaze. According to Billboard, “Rap Devil” delighted segments of the hip-hop community by taking Eminem to task. Joe Budden has also threatened retaliation against Eminem’s controversial album, warning if they enter a rap battle, Eminem wouldn’t “fare well.”
