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 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.

“PlayStation 5 restock” trended on Twitter after stores sold out of the Sony console in literally seconds on November 19. Players took to social media to voice their frustrations.

Ever since its launch, Sony’s PlayStation 5 has been this holiday’s hottest item. Stores across the world can’t keep the next-gen console in stock, and consumers are desperate to get their hands on one.

On November 19, stores like Walmart announced a restock of the PS5. Only, they sold out in seconds. Angry players left empty handed were stunned and frustrated by the disastrous availability – and vented their feelings online, as you do.

Gamers rage out after PS5 restock disaster

A similar story played out for many attempting to buy Sony’s next-gen console. Consumers were able to add the coveted hardware to their basket, only to be greeted by Walmart’s “oh deer” crash screen, made even more frustrating by displaying a photo of a smiling dog with reindeer antlers on.

Other users made it as far as entering their payment and shipping information, but by the time they clicked and confirmed their order, they were told the new PlayStation had already sold out.

On Twitter, #PS5Restock and #OhDeer began trending after the gaming community let out their rage using hilarious memes to describe the situation. Here are some of the best reactions.

PlayStation fans react

Many frustrated PlayStation fans used iconic clips from pop culture, such as Spongebob Squarepants or anime to express their anger with the restock lasting only seconds before selling out.

Other players raged out over Walmart’s now-infamous “Oh Deer” site crash screen which plagued those trying to purchase the console. The smiling dog in the Christmas outfit quickly became meme fodder, and even trended worldwide.

At the time of writing, Walmart has not made any public comment about the situation. It is also unclear when there will be another restock for the PS5. With Christmas just around the corner, the scarcity of the new console will only further fuel the demand for the hot item.

This isn’t the only time the PlayStation 5 has trended on social media over lack of stock. An hour after Sony announced pre-orders would go up 24 hours later, stores quickly broke the street date and put the next-gen hardware up for sale a day earlier than they were supposed to  – which also left many gamers frustrated.
