After MGK sent shots Eminem's way with "Rap Devil," Em is ready to fire back with an eviscerating cut. "KILLSHOT" is exactly that, a diss track featuring Eminem tapping into his signature anger and going for MGK's throat by way of advanced wordplay.

Producer-singer-songwriter-DJ-everything else rhêtorík bares his soul on ‘Behind Closed Doors.’ The EP is a sum of his whimsy and his triumphs, a showcase of his insecurities, but also a promise to himself and to his fans that there will be light in their lives. Across five songs and in 20 minutes, rhêtorík makes quick work of what hurts him and how he’s learned to heal himself.
“I took a year from 24 to 25, where I went completely stone-cold sober, really got into the vlogging, and just took a year of internal reflection,” he told DJBooth. His reflections led him to question himself and his motives, and ‘Behind Closed Doors’ is the immediate product of his weighty introspection. The indie-meets-EDM influences on the project undoubtedly move music forward, but it’s rhêtorík’s hopeful message that makes him a truly enduring artist.
