Machine Gun Kelly, MGK
Machine Gun Kelly, or MGK, was signed into Bad Boy records by Diddy.
    When you think about a label like Bad Boy records and all the great legendary acts that the label has produced in the world of music, it's only right that Diddy turned it up a level by signing Cleveland's own MGK. He also signed NY heavyweight French Montana around the same time. With a mix of braggadocio, lightning fast bars and an attitude so compelling that he's probably the only white boy that has torn down the infamous Rucker Park in NYC in a vivid performance from atop the basketball rim.

    Richard Colson Baker was born on April 22, 1990 in Houston, Texas to missionary parents and is better known by his stage names, Machine Gun Kelly and MGK. Baker and his family moved all around the world including Egypt and Germany, Chicago, Los Angeles, Denver, and Cleveland. Since he lived the first four years of his life in Egypt, he spoke Arabic before English. He started becoming obsessed with rap in sixth and seventh grade where he attended Hamilton Middle School in Denver, Colorado and the first two artists that got him hooked on Hip Hop as a child were Ludacris and DMX.
