Colson Baker (Houston, Texas, United States, April 22, 1990), better known by his stage name Machine Gun Kelly (or abbreviated as MGK ), is a rapper and American actor from Cleveland, Ohio. His stage name was given by his quick-fire lyric flow and is a reference to the famous criminal George “Machine Gun Kelly” Barnes.
He rose to fame after releasing his first four mixtapes: Stamp of Approval (2007), Homecoming (2009), 100 Words and Running (2010) and Lace Up: The Mixtape (2010). In August of 2011, MGK obtained a record contract with Interscope and Bad Boy Records, after having a meeting with Jimmy Iovine and Sean “Diddy” Combs. In mid-2011, MGK signed an agreement with Young and Reckless Clothing.
Machine Gun Kelly’s Biography
Baker was born on April 22, 1990 in Houston, Texas, to missionary parents. Baker and his family moved around the world and set up residence abroad in Egypt and Germany, as well as throughout the United States (Chicago, Los Angeles, Denver and Cleveland.) In his first four years of life in Egypt Baker learned to speak Arabic before English, and his mother divorced his father and abandoned them at the age of 9 and does not see her again until his rise to fame.
He started listening to rap in sixth and seventh grade when he went to Hamilton Middle School, a school with an ethnically diverse student body in Denver, Colo. The first three rappers who put him into the genre when he was just a kid were Ludacris, Eminem and DMX, having listened to We Right Here from the album The Great Depression of DMX.
Arrival in Cleveland and jump to fame
At the age of fourteen, Baker moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where he attended Shaker Heights High School, where he convinced the owner of a T-shirt store to become his manager. After launching Stamp of Approval, its reputation and popularity grew to the point of being able to give concerts in the premises of the city.
About to be evicted, Baker went to the Apollo Theater in Harlem in March 2009 where he managed to beat his rivals on several occasions, becoming the first white rapper to win at the Apollo Theater. MGK records music in his studio Home referring to him as the “Rage Cage.” Baker began to gain fame when he appeared on the MTV2 Sucker Free Freestyle show, where he rhymed many verses of his single Chip Off the Block.
