Machine Gun Kelly burst onto the music scene with a lifetime’s worth of determination in 2012. With the release of his first album “Lace Up,” Machine Gun Kelly immediately shot to fame. The talented young rapper who hails from Cleveland, OH possesses the attitude of rap greats with the talent to match. From his gritty rhymes to his tenacious presence, MGK has become a permanent staple in the hearts of his ever so growing fan base.
Penning rhymes about everything from family struggles, relationships and addiction, Kelly as an artist embodies every generation’s relentless perseverance toward creating a better future with some good-old fashioned grit. The ability to seamlessly blend hip-hop and rock genres has allowed MGK to reserve a top spot in both worlds. With various punk and rap influences tangled in MGK’s crafty beats and lyrics the rapper has been able to distinguish himself from the masses.
“My punk influences blend into my raps and a lot of it is in my raspy, grungy voice,” Machine Gun Kelly says. “Punk also gave me a different writing style, I use more words and it taught me to put my views into my subject matter. Living life and doing what you have to keep moving forward.”
