Machine Gun Kelly has established himself as one of the top musicians in the music industry right now. However, not everyone views him in this light. Millyz recently blasted Machine Gun Kelly and his rap abilities, so it seems that he’s not a fan.
During an appearance on VladTV, the Massachusetts native shared a list of his favorite white rappers. It included Eminem, Paul Wall, himself, Mac Miller, Jack Harlow, and Action Bronson. Millyz, on the other hand, wasted no time in criticizing MGK and his music. “MGK is garbage. He can’t rap, but he got a good rockstar image, but like I’m a real rapper. I really break down bars, syllables, and words, so I look past image and flow,” Millyz said.
“A lot of white rappers just came through and did that fast flow and said nothing, so he came in with a rockstar image and all of that, but you’re not nice though.”
“So even when the Eminem battle happened, and peoples minds was blown because at the time, they expected MGK to just get blown out. So when he showed any type of resistance, he came in and said a rap, ‘Your beard is weird.’ Name a bar from that song. That sh*t is garbage.”
Millyz praised Eminem earlier in the conversation when he explained how influential Slim Shady was to his career. Eminem, according to the Massachusetts rapper, made growing up easier for him since he was a “cool white boy” to look up to. “Eminem, Slim Shady, Marshall Mathers. Number one, two, and three for sure,” Millyz said.
“I’m a student of Em. That’s one of the things in my career I’m waiting on whether it comes or not. I want that co-sign. I just want to know he watches my sh*t.”
Despite Millyz’s disdain for Machine Gun Kelly, the Cleveland rapper wants to show him and others that he can rap with the best of them. In April, MGK declared that with his next album, he will return to making Hip Hop.
“I’m going to make a rap album for myself. For no other reason, no point to prove, no chip on my shoulder. 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. I made Tickets [to My Downfall] and Mainstream Sellout because I wanted to make them. I need to now also make people miss that sound.”
“I’m going to do this tour and I’m gonna step into where I left Hotel Diablo and expand on my storytelling as a rapper and find a new innovative sound for the Hip Hop Machine Gun Kelly. That’s where my excitement is and where me as a music archaeologist wants to explore.”
MGK moved into alternative rock and has two No. 1 albums, Tickets to My Downfall and Mainstream Sellout. The Ohio native is now on tour promoting the latter, which sparked some controversy earlier this month when one of his tour buses was destroyed. The rapper’s red tour bus was destroyed with yellow spray paint on one side, calling him a “Rap Devil f-ggot,” while an ejaculating penis defaced the other side of the vehicle.
The ugly graffiti was apparently cleaned quickly, and no permanent damage was done to the vehicle. Everyone seems to be picking on MGK lately, in one way or another. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
