Machine Gun Kelly has one of the largest cult fan bases in Hip Hop music today. His music has inspired many in their late teens and early 20’s to follow his movement but is often times not considered a top rapper by many in the industry.

Recently sitting down with Invasion Radio, MGK said he believes he is a top rapper and his fans can back him up on the matter.

“Hands down, there’s no way I’m not in the top 5, it just makes no sense,” he said. “If I’m honestly not considered in the top 10 lyricists of right now [shakes head]. You can’t tell my fans there’s a better rapper than Machine Gun Kelly.”

Perhaps any proof of the Cleveland native’s lyrical ability is evident on his latest release, Black Flag. MGK also talked about his newest album and said it’s his most well received release to date.

“I’m actually going to consider that my second album. I’m calling it a free album,” he said. “I think I’m just going to continue to work these songs and do different variations of the production of the songs and release those… This is my best received project I’ve ever released.”
