Music artist Machine Gun Kelly has recently been beefing with the band Slipknot. The issue started with MGK criticising the band. There seems to be no end to the beef in sight, as Machine Gun Kelly has now doubled down on expressing his dislike for Slipknot.
Earlier in the year, in February, Taylor criticized Machine Gun Kelly. He said that he hates artists who “fail” at a genre and then go to rock music. The idea is that MGK “failed” at rap music, so he went to rock n roll.
I [hate] the artists who failed in one genre and decided to go rock — and I think he knows who he is. But that’s another story.
Both MGK and Slipknot were performing at Riot Fest on Sunday at the same time. MGK implied that him being at the festival to perform with “all the old, weird dudes with masks” was a favor.
Turn the lights up. Let me see who chose to be here instead of with all the old, weird dudes with masks. Hey, you all know what I’m really happy that I’m not doing? Being 50 years old, wearing a f–kin’ weird mask on a f–kin’ stage.
MGK also alleged that Taylor had recorded a verse for one of his songs, which Taylor promptly denied on Twitter, along with screenshots of proof.
