Machine Gun Kelly Disses Jack Harlow In New Cypher: Watch

Machine Gun Kelly has been relatively quiet in the first half of 2023, mostly making headlines due to the near end of his relationship with Megan Fox. As you may recall, the engaged lovers found their romance going up in flames during Super Bowl weekend, at which time the actress shared a telling Instagram post that immediately caused cheating rumours to fly. After weeks of turmoil and therapy (plus a trip to Hawaii), they're apparently back in a good place. Photos from a PDA-filled trip to the beach previously backed these claims up, allowing fans – and the couple – to move on from living in limbo.

It seems Colson Baker has since turned his energy back into his music, potentially crafting a follow-up to 2022's mainstream sellout. While he certainly has many inspirations when it comes to writing songs, the father of one took a special interest in Jack Harlow's new Jackman album when penning his latest cypher. MGK shared a video of him performing at his house on Saturday (May 6), not-so-subtly dissing the Kentucky native over some braggadocious claims he made about being the "hardest white boy" since Eminem on his "They Don't Love It" track.

Machine Gun Kelly Speaks His Mind

"Never been afraid to say what's on my mind at any given time of day 😈🎯," The Dirt actor wrote in his caption. "New cypher out now." As he raps, Kelly reminds listeners, "I'm the shit when I sit, stand, talk, walk, rap, sing / My mouth sewage," before leaning into his spiritual side with bars like "I'm cross-legged in my sanctuary / Like a Buddhist / I'm cross-eyed from this weed I'm smokin' / That's colour blue-ish."

His obvious diss aimed at Harlow comes later on when he spits, "I'm a Great White / I could eat these Barracudas," followed by "I see why they call you Jackman / You jacked man's whole swag / Give Drake his flow back, man." If you haven't already heard the Come Home The Kids Miss You artist's original bars that sparked Machine Gun Kelly's diss, check them out along with the "They Don't Love It" visual below. Afterward, tell us your thoughts on the older lyricist's new cypher in the comments.
