Memes employ gamer streaming joke against the rapper.
The latest death hoax to hit the media is that of Machine Gun Kelly, when he got tangled up in a meme that only gamers will be familiar with. He has definitely not died of a drug overdose, despite the fact that many social media users have taking the rumour seriously.
The fake death story that was circulating social media suggested that the rapper, whose real name is Richard Colson Baker, was found dead by his manager from a LIGMA overdose; a drug which he had allegedly been using following the onset of his beef with Eminem.

We could be looking at a major Interscope publicity stunt.
The beef between Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly which was reignited following the release of the former's latest album 'Kamikaze' has become the subject of scrutiny recently as a number of people have speculated that there may be some staging to their apparent disharmony.
There's been a kind of back-and-forth between the two rappers since Eminem's song 'Not Alike', where he criticised Machine Gun Kelly for comments he made about his daughter back in 2012. MGK then went on to release a takedown of his former idol in the form of 'Rap Devil', to which Eminem responded with 'Killshot'.

That then led to MGK’s reply track ‘Rap Devil’ – poking fun at Em’s 2013 single ‘Rap God’. However, their beef actually extends back to 2012, when MGK tweeted about Eminem’s then-16 year old daughter, calling her “hot as f***”.
