Songfacts®:

  • Hotel Diablo finds Machine Gun Kelly outlining a number of anguishes, including on this track where he takes aim at the relentless jeers from his haters and critics.

    Written in history, it was gonna happen eventually
    I just can't wait 'til the day that I run into you physically
    For everything that I went through mentally
    When it felt like everybody in the world was against me
    When all the critics and every article tried to offend me


    MGK also specifically references his beef with Eminem, which dates back to 2012 when the Cleveland rapper commented on Em's daughter, Hailee. The two rappers exchanged a spate of diss tracks; here, Kelly brushes off the impact of Em's four-minute tirade, "Killshot."

    I just spent the winter living after someone tried to send a kill shot missing me
  • Later on in the song, MGK gives a shout-out to his football player pal, Odell Beckham Jr.

    Brought O's to the land like Beckham
    On the 13th floor with a weapon


    Beckham plays wide receiver for Kelly's hometown team Cleveland Browns and his number is 13.
