Machine Gun Kelly Responds To Yelawolf, Says He Was Misunderstood

MGK blames recent subliminals and comments made during interviews on account of his age.

Yelawolf challenged Machine Gun Kelly earlier this week after he caught wind of some comments that the Ohio rapper had made on a radio show. MGK recently took to the airwaves to address Yela’s comments, explaining that he has no problem with the Shady Records signee and that he was just misunderstood.

“[Do] I have a problem with Yelawolf? No. I don’t think Hip Hop needs that. I think it’s corny when it’s two white guys. Especially when we’re cut from the same type of cloth,” he said. “I think that I’m young and I’m wild and I say some things, things just fly out of my mouth that are taken a different way. The thing with Yelawolf didn’t start with the Cypher thing. It started with me doing an interview - more like multiple interviews. I always get the Yelawolf question, comparisons and stuff like that. You start answering in a different way - it’s hard to explain.”

MGK says that though many believe the problems started with subliminal lines on the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher, he pinpoints the problem to his impression of Yela during an interview with The Breakfast Club. Though he admits he’s young and can be reckless, the 21-year-old says his words were misunderstood.

“The interview that they were referring to when Yelawolf did do the interview and he saw the stuff was when I was drunk and talking stuff. It wasn’t bad what I said. I just think it’s a Yelawolf impression - I don’t know where it went wrong. Honestly, everything I’m doing is all in good fun, man. I think people took things the wrong way. We never had the chance to speak,” he said. “I’m 21, man. I’m going to say some stuff that people aren’t going to understand.”

    • Emil

      Tell me why do Yelawolf suck i think Yelawolf keep it real he don't change his music style because of other he do what he love he raps he use fast beats and do always have some good lyrics i can find a lot of rappers these days there just rap about money and cars but not about there hard times or what they have been through

    • Iraeroy Saunoa

      man shut the fuck up. u suck.

  • T-RO

    I personally like his music but the kid says some stupid stuff sometimes. I get that he is sick of ppl comparing him to another white rapper. But he's gotta settle it down and not say stupid shyt. And also not say stupid shyt like he started "crowd surfing" Other than that the kid has mad skills

  • Josh

    "Especially when were cut from the same type of cloth, Don't EVER consider yourself anything close to Yelawolf you coward. Punk bitch ran his mouth and when he saw Yela was gonna handle him, he comes out blaming it on being drunk. Bitch move from a real bitch.


    PLEASE...i saw Mgk's bet cypher that shit was so weak to be honest Yelawolf should just forget his ones gonna remember him after a couple months anyway.

  • Matthew Lewis

    mgk is a garbage ass rapper & hes a coward smh

  • LOL @ these comments


  • crazyjoedavola

    MGK was smart to back down, I had a feeling that he would. MGK knows that Yela is a lyrial genius and all MGK has is a rapid fire flow with absolutely no substance. Yelawolf would have lyrically destroyed him if this was made into real beef. It would have been like Eminem with Everlast...

    • crazyjoedavola

      I've heard his music. MGK is an internet phenomenon who will die out within a year or two. His fake-egotisical personality, his lack or originality and substance heavily outweigh his rapping skills. Have you heard all of trunk muzik 0-60? Creekwater? How about Yela's tribute to classic rock in a hybrid CD called Stereo? Yelawolf is by the one of the most original MC's to come in the game in years. He is already a legend in his own right. He has so much versatility, character, and hardships and a past and everything that makes an artist great, not to mention the fact that he spits fire like Tech and has the lyricism of Em. His roots run deep in the south and he came from the gutter and has so much talent it leaves you in awe. I know there are a lot of MGK fans, but you guys have to admit at some point, he's wack...he steals so much from other people and he's absolutely fake as hell. He can rap fast, we get it, and it's a product of this new "hip hop" generation that MCs with nothing more than a rapid fire flow can get famous. LIke I said before, Yela would have destroyed MGK's career (what little one he has anyways) in one diss song.

    I sang on MGKs hit song Fantasy. I am compared to drake and tre songs and let me tell you haters my crew is the best in the midwest. We are all real gangster type people so anyone on Yelas side can get it in cleveland. Eminem is old news, get off his dick. Put mgk in a cypher with em, royce, tristed I, yela or whoever and he will kill them on spot. These are facts. I make a half a mill a year just doing what I love. And mgk makes double that haters. We got mansions and lambos. Mgk and Aaron Lafette are the only hope for everyones future. Yeah fuck cudi too. Fuck anyone who opposes my crew. We took over the mall don't make us take over your hometown, or should I say hoetown.

    This dude won't got at Wolf purely because Wolf is backed by Em. I don't blame MGK for not going at it, all he would need to do would be awake the sleeping giant and it would all be over for his career. MGK is a joke that Diddy signed to try and create competition for Yelawolf. Except the people have spoken and MGK is fucking poser. I know wolf is 31 but he spits. What the fuck else you need?

    Every mc in the scene hates him because he stole his image and style from another cleveland rapper. He already started beef with kid cudi because mgk stole Cudi's term Raging. Cudi had that catch phrase since 05 so now what mgk? Your a liar, a dumb kid and you just proved you don't have what it takes to take the national scene. Have a fun time landing on your ass.

    Corny ass skinny bitch. What a way to start and end your career. And yes cleveland hates you. You stole from us. Give back all the things you stole and admit your wrong and maybe we will forgive you, not.

    I wish the cleveland elite would take this bitch out the game .I am from cleveland and been a performer for years so I know all the little rumors floating around. Known fact, MGK has stole his whole career. He stole his term lace up from Kid Cudi. Stole chip the rippers cartoon design, stole his style and stage show from another fast cleveland white rapper johnny givens that moved to la. And lastly stole Lace Up and his logo from Wales. The dude is a thief. His fans are young and they belive his lies. Saying he started stage diving and climbing shit. I have 2 words bitch, johnny givens. I have 2 eyes and I seen jg do the same shit in 04 so don't try to sell your lie to me: the world didn't begin in 2007 idiot. Yelawolf would straight kill this bitch.

How was it takin out of context or not meant to be serious when you say the guys a fraud who's so fat he cant find hiw own dick??.... smh, then you wanna be on some "Poor Me, I'm the victim cause I got checked for runnin my mouth" shit??
