American rapper, singer, songwriter and actor from Cleveland, Ohio, Colson Baker, known professionally as Machine Gun Kelly, has borrowed heavily from pop-punk influences. As emo rap became incredibly popular with acts like Lil Peep and Juice WRLD at the helm, these influences started to stretch into more corners of rap. DailyLeakers.com
Sing-songy hooks continue to feature in tracks with elements of hip hop and that hybrid could be attributed to the artists who grew up during the pop-punk era of the early 2000’s. This pattern could be seen at times in Machine Gun Kelly’s music, but he’s going to take it a step further but making a full-fledged pop-punk album.
MGK shared this news as a side-note in an Instagram post thanking Travis Barker for a gift. The Blink-182 drummer bought him the [email protected] collaboration between mastermind and MEDICOM Toy. The black bear figurine retails for about $360 USD. MGK decided to adorably name his own “MURDER”.
The mentioning of the forthcoming pop-punk record in this post may allude to the fact that Travis Barker will contribute to it. MGK, Travis Barker and YUNGBLUD actually already collaborated on a song titled “I Think I’m OKAY”, which could be considered to fall under the pop-punk umbrella.
In other Machine Gunk Kelly news, he was spotted leaving a Golden Globes after-party with actress Kate Beckinsale. This piece of gossip was thought to be quite scandalous since Beckinsale is the ex of MGK’s best friend, Pete Davidson.
