Machine Gun Kelly takes to the Breakfast Club to give his perspective.
Machine Gun Kelly has officially hit The Breakfast Club, sliding through to talk Mac Miller's passing, an alleged tryst with Halsey, and of course, his war with Eminem. While the hosts do their best to remain neutral, Charlamagne seems immediately friendly toward Machine Gun Kelly, likely due to the residual glow caused by dissing Eminem.
With a whirlwind of recent Machine Gun Kelly related antics to chose from, the conversational immediately settles on Gunner's bloody knuckles. Though he pleads the fifth, his knowing grin speaks volumes. Alluding to the recent beatdown of actor Gabriel Rodriguez, which transpired after Rodriguez made some disparaging comments about Kelly's integrity, Charlamagne gives his full stamp of approval. "People are saying whatever they want nowadays cause of social media," prompts Charlamagne Tha God. Machine Gun Kelly takes the "no comment" approach.
When Yee inquires about "KILLSHOT," Kelly claims Em was six-years-late in firing shots, despite allegedly handling the situation behind closed doors. He eventually opens up to his comments on Hailey Mathers, which originally set the whole thing off to begin with. "I'll apologize man to man, but public apology? Come on." When Charlamagne asks why not bite the bullet and issue a public apology, Kelly's brow furrows. "We're talking about the same guy who shits on dead people and Christopher Reeves. Look man, it was a silly comment to have started all of this."
He delves deeper into the dilemma of tension between labelmates, especially one as powerful as Em; despite what you may think of Kelly, it's an interesting perspective nonetheless (around the four-minute mark). When MGK asks if Paul Rosenberg ever attempted to shelve Gunner's project, Machine Gun Kelly gives a cryptic "no comment."
"You took two weeks, I took two days," says MGK. "You used a Ronny J track, I used a Ronny J track. You used a million dollar studio, I used a dressing room before sound check." He also takes a moment to flex, citing his twenty-million records sold, without the help of Eminem. "I been in ten movies," he says. "It's very hard for me to accept that this career just budded out of nowhere cause of him."
He also gives "KILLSHOT" a six on ten, a passing grade to be sure, but not one anyone will be hanging on the fridge. There's plenty more to gain from this one, so catch the entire tequila-tinted interview below.
