However, Mac Lethal's diss track also received criticism wherein one of the fans alleged that he was using the word N*zi for clout and one Instagram user compared it to the Eminem vs Benzino beef.

The beef between Benzino and Eminem spans over 2 decades and began in 2002 when Benzino, co-owner of The Source magazine gave Eminem's album The Eminem Show a 4/5 rating and later admitted to blocking the record from getting a perfect score.

"I don't give a f**k about "relevancy." He started this sh*t.": Mac Lethal comments on releasing the Tom MacDonald diss track

It is believed that the feud between the two rappers started with Mac Lethal's 2019 now-deleted tweet allegedly hinting at Tom MacDonald. Lethal did not mention MacDonald in his tweet, however, it was used in MacDonald's first diss on Lethal called Lethal Injection.

Mac Lethal's tweet mentions:

"This white dude who raps about other white dudes being oppressed is GAAAAAAARBAGE"

Lethal also mentioned that he doesn't know the rapper's name and won't bother to learn it too, calling his bars "awful". Tom MacDonald's diss track received a single rap response by Lethal called Single White Female and there had been no new developments in the same until Mac Lethal's recent diss track dropped.

In the YouTube description of Tom MacDonald Is a N*zi, Mac Lethal mentioned that he didn't want to engage with MacDonald because he didn't respect him as an artist. Lethal stated that a "Canadian grifter" who began rapping after listening to Eminem and that someone who has "super cool Slipknot braids, and looks totally scary in his oversized contacts" is not the kind of competitor he wants.

Moreover, Mac Lethal also mentioned that after their public rap battle feud, the two rappers DM'd and followed each other and moved past it. Lethal was impressed by MacDonald's candor and stated he's a nice guy when talked to one-on-one.

Mentioning what initiated the latest diss track, Lethal mentioned that a couple of weeks ago Tom MacDonald randomly dissed him "on wax" and asserted that he trampled Lethal when they battled. Additionally, Tom MacDonald also mentioned situations in the rapper's personal and professional life.

Introducing his response to MacDonald's diss, Lethal stated his kindness was taken as a weakness and that MacDonald thinks he will not respond. He mentioned that this track is the first half of his response, warning everyone that the "second half is much meaner."

At the end of the description, Mac Lethal mentioned:

"p.s. I don't give a f*ck about "relevancy." He started this sh*t."

Apart from describing what transpired in the latest diss track, Lethal also mentioned that he'll get back to YouTube soon, given that he's moving cities right now as his "pops is very sick."
