Machine Gun Kelly Is Planning A Comeback To The Rap Game
Machine Gun Kelly is going back to his roots. Following the success of his most recent arrival, mainstream sellout. The 32-year-old announced in a new interview with Audacy that he aims to leave the alternative rock genre and return to hip hop music.
MGK released albums like Lace Up, General Admission, and BINGE in the early years of his career before opting to move away from rap and experiment with other genres. Despite his recent successes, the “Wild Boy” wants to exercise some of his creative muscles and push himself to advance his career as an artist.
Machine Gun Kelly Is Not Bothered
“I’m going to make a rap album for myself,” he said. “For no other reason, no point to prove, no chip on my shoulder.” Some people attacked the Colson Baker’s rap abilities, causing rumors that he had no choice but to abandon hip hop if he wanted to prosper, but he is not deterred by their remarks.
“If I keep doing things to prove things to people, I’m going to one, drive myself crazy and two, not make a good product,” the Houston-born star added. “I made Tickets and mainstream sellout because I wanted to make them. I need to now also make people miss that sound.”
Kelly said he’ll pick up “where [he] left Hotel Diablo and expand on [his] storytelling as a rapper” after he returns from his tour. His ultimate goal is to “create a new innovative sound for Machine Gun Kelly’s hip hop.”
