Machine Gun Kelly

Machine Gun KellyMachine Gun Kelly, Machine Gun Kelly went from a troubled youth trying to find his way in the streets of Cleveland to one of rap’s top prospects in a year’s time. Now, not only has the rapid-fire lyricist gone on to sign with Diddy’s Bad Boy Records, he’s already cutting records with Waka Flocka Flame and his idol, DMX. MGK has created so much of a stir in the rap game that he is now a nominee for MTV News’ 2011 Hottest Breakthrough MC.

“To be considered for the hottest breakthrough MC of 2011, it’s obviously an honor, but I want to be the hottest. I’ve never been comfortable with sharing anything: I was a single child,” Machine Gun Kelly said on Wednesday’s “RapFix Live.”

Kells began battle-rapping around 2004 while he was still in high school, and graduated to the studio in 2006 when he dropped his very first mixtape, Stamp of Approval. All the while, he struggled through school, but eventually graduated. Kells went on to work a few odd jobs and become a dad. In 2010, he dropped another tape, 100 Words and Runnin’ — but it was with his second tape that year, Lace Up, that folks really began to take notice.

Songs like his hometown ode “Cleveland” and the heartfelt “End of the Road” went on to establish MGK as not only a relatable MC, but a fully capable spitter as well. Kells went on to tour and perform across the country, then in August, he announced on “RapFix Live” he had signed a deal with Diddy’s Bad Boy Records.
