Machine Gun Kelly got his rap name in honour of his ridiculously fast rapping style, and built up a loyal fan base in his hometown of Cleveland before coming to the attention of P Diddy who signed him to Bad Boy Records. While he’s been a firm fixture in rap circles for years, MGK gained worldwide attention in pop with his surprise collaboration with Camila Cabello on ‘Bad Things’, which became a Billboard number one hit.
