Machine Gun Kelly is a Cleveland, Ohio, native who works as both a rapper and an actor. While still in high school in 2006, he started making music and released his first mixtape. Today, he’s one of the most popular rappers in the game, and his popularity has made him a household name.
Over the years, MGK has collaborated with a wide range of artists, including Wiz Khalifa, Young Jeezy, and Meek Mill.
Richard Colson Baker was born in Houston, Texas, on April 22nd, 1990. When he was a child, his parents were both missionaries, so he had to spend a lot of time away from home. While growing up, the family relocated frequently, spending time in Germany, Egypt, and many other countries.
In addition, Baker lived in a number of states across the United States. After his mother left the family, he and his father eventually settled in Denver.
Baker was bullied as a teen and learned to defend herself verbally. He eventually developed a passion for rap and began creating his own music.
To cope with the loss of his father’s presence, Baker moved into a neighbor’s basement and began taking drugs. Stamp of Approval, his debut mixtape, was recorded during this time period. After Baker stopped attending school, his father decided to relocate him to Kuwait.
Fans dubbed him “Machine Gun Kelly” because of his lightning-fast delivery. ‘Stamp of Approval’ was the name of his debut mixtape, and it was essential in getting his name out there and making a difference in the industry.
For all that MGK had accomplished with his music, it was still difficult for him to make ends meet. Working at Chipotle was the only option for him to keep his place and avoid being evicted.
Several years later, MGK produced the Lace-Up Mixtape, which featured a lot of references to Cleveland. Because of this, he became a household name in his hometown.
Soon after, he began making full-length studio albums and quickly became a household name in the music industry.
