About Machine Gun Kelly

Machine Gun Kelly is the stage name of Colson Baker (born April 22, 1990), who goes by the moniker Machine Gun Kelly is the new king of rap. He's a musician, rapper, and actor – and he does it all well. His blend of contemporary and alternative hip-hop with rock has made him one of the most popular artists today. Although he was about to be evicted from his apartment, Baker decided to travel to Harlem's Apollo Theater in March 2009. There, he had consecutive victories- the first rapper ever to win at the iconic theater. After his victory, MGK was contacted by Sean "Diddy" Combs and signed to Bad Boy Records in August 2011. He released his first EP, Half Naked & Almost Famous in 2012. The EP entered the Billboard 200 chart at number 24 and sold 22,000 copies in its first week. In October 2012, MGK released his debut album, Laced Up. The title track is "Wild Boy". The album peaked at number four on the US Rap chart and number 30 on the Billboard 200. It sold more than 24,000 copies in its first week.

In June 2015, MGK released his second studio album, General Admission. The album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, selling more than 84,000 copies in its first week. Machine Gun Kelly is known for his high-energy live performances. He has toured with various artists such as Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Meek Mill. In 2012, he embarked on his headlining tour, the "Laced Up Tour". In 2016, he went on the "Alpha Omega Tour" with Tech N9ne. In March 2018, MGK released his third studio album, Bloom. The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 and sold more than 107,000 copies in its first week. Between 2007 and 2010, MGK released four mixtapes before signing with Bad Boy Records. In 2012, he released his debut studio effort, Lace Up, which reached number four on the Billboard 200 and included his breakout single "Wild Boy" (featuring Waka Flocka Flame). His second and third albums, General Admission (2015) and Bloom (2017) were equally commercially successful; the latter featured "Bad Things," which reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100.

His fourth album, Hotel Diablo (2019), has rap rock. MGK has stated that Eminem and DMX are his musical influences. During his childhood, he listened to rock bands like Guns N' Roses and Blink-182. These rap and rock bands are cited as major music influencers by Baker. Baker credited these rappers and artists with being significant musical influences in an interview discussing his collaboration with DMX. He also said that DM X's songs helped him get through difficult times while growing up, especially bullying. In the 2014 romance drama Beyond the Lights, Baker made his acting debut as Kid Culprit, a "shallow, self-important" rapper. He collaborated with Nas, another rapper, to co-star in and co-executive produce The Land, a drama with a Cleveland setting that was released in 2016. He also had recurring roles on the Showtime comedy-drama series Roadies as Wes, a former Pearl Jam roadie, and the techno-thriller adventure film Nerve with Emma Roberts and Dave Franco that same year.
