Rapper MGK and his beef with Eminem may be long finished, but he still has a grudge with some of his critics such as YouTuber Adam ‘adam22’ Grandmaison.

Back in 2018, MGK and Eminem were engaged in a rap feud stemming from a tweet about Eminem’s daughter in 2012.

In the song “Not Alike” on Eminem’s 2018 album Kamikaze, the rapper name-dropped MGK and that caused a back-and-forth battle between the two.

MGK still has beef with adam22 it seems.

MGK dropped “Rap Devil” where he criticized the Detroit rapper’s age and how long it took for him to come back with a response to the tweet.

In response, Eminem released “Killshot” and after that, many pundits deemed the battle to be effectively over. Adam22 released a video saying MGK was “mutilated” in a nearly 14-minute video, and the general consensus agreed with him.

Even though we’re now about a year and a half out from that battle, MGK appears to have a razor-sharp memory, as when he ran into the YouTuber interviewing FaZe Banks, the rapper walked up to Adam and slapped his mic before walking away.

Adam took this opportunity to reopen an old wound and poke a little fun at it.

“MGK not too happy about me saying Eminem won that battle,” he tweeted with a clip of the incident.

While many think MGK lost the battle, the Cleveland rapper has still been doing pretty well for himself. In 2018 alone, he starred in the Netflix film Bird Box and was part of rock band Fall Out Boy’s Mania tour, where he performed his diss track Rap Devil.

In 2019, he released his album Hotel Diablo which debuted at number five on the Billboard 200, which isn’t too bad for someone whose career was proclaimed dead by many following his feud with Eminem.

Things between the two rappers have quietened down in 2019, but as we’ve seen with rap battles before, all it takes is a simple tweet to stir something up again.

YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is once again putting his wealth to great use by letting fans literally send pictures and videos to the moon after buying space on a NASA rover.

On January 24, the YouTube star announced that fans can start sending him their content in the form of photos or videos, and he will put them on an official NASA rover. The only catch is that it costs $10 to do so and videos need to be just one second long.

“Later this year NASA is putting a rover on the moon and I managed to buy storage space on it. I thought it’d be fun to let you guys put whatever you want on the moon,” MrBeast said in a follow-up to his announcement tweet.

In a video detailing the new project on his website, Donaldson explains how he thought it would be cool to create the world’s first digital time capsule.

“Every single one of you that puts something on the moon will get a certificate of authenticity,” he elaborated. “So, for decades to come you can prove to people that you literally put something on the moon.”

According to MrBeast, the possibilities are endless (as long as it’s legal) with fans being able to put a picture of their mom, dog, Elon Musk, or the three together.

“This is your first and possibly only chance to ever put a photo or video on the moon,” he added. “I genuinely need your help to help preserve humanity.”

How to enter

Basically, how it works is really straight forward. All fans have to do is follow these instructions.

First, head on over to MrBeast’s site and select which bundle you want, as some more expensive options come with a T-shirt or hoodie.

Next, pay to add partake in the experience and select what video or photo you want to go to the moon and upload it to MrBeast’s site.

Making it to the moon has never been easier.

That’s it, you’re done. MrBeast’s team will load the content into a “moon-ready” harddrive and NASA will send the hard drive to the moon.

If you know anyone who is really interested in space, this could be a really cool surprise for them. Go ahead and reach for the stars.
