Though Machine Gun Kelly has developed a dedicated following, the he hasn’t been well-received by everyone.Notably, MGK’s boss, Diddy, expressed some reservations.
“Honestly, man, Puff had got back from Ibiza three days prior to hearing the album,” said Kelly on MTV’s “RapFix Live.”
“People where I’m from don’t even know what an Ibiza is; they probably think it’s like a fur coat,” he added.
Kells explained Diddy’s reaction upon hearing the album. “I think when he heard it, his initial reaction was like, ‘Damn, why are you so angry?'”
Eventually, Diddy understood where Kelly was coming from. “I ended having dinner with him the other day, and he looked at me like, ‘Yo, man, I really love the album.'”
As for Kelly, he has since made progress in his outlook towards life. “I just took a step back and just realized I was angry for so long, but I’m done with that. I think the album gave me some hope in life. It just gave me something to look forward to. I’m more positive now.”
