Yelawolf Calls Machine Gun Kelly “Sensitive” During Radio Interview

Shots fired!

During an interview with Las Vegas, Nevada, Hot 97.5 radio host Bootleg Kev, Yelawolf talked about Machine Gun Kelly taking offense to his verse during the BET Cypher, claiming, “He’s being sensitive [if] he thinks I’m talking about him.”

This comes after MGK’s appearance on New York’s Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club morning show last week where he said he felt Yela was taking subliminal shots at him with his cypher verse. “Real talk, I just think he takes shots at me in every one of his raps, like the BET cypher,” Kelly said. “I felt like that was all about me.”

Yela replied with some hostility, suggesting, “The best thing that he could do is if he has a problem, if he has something he needs to say, just say my name, dog…. Machine Gun Kelly, If you want it come get it… If you feeling froggy, jump muthafucka.”

Yelawolf’s upcoming album, Radioactive, is scheduled to hit stores November 21st, while his latest Kid Rock-assisted single, “Let’s Roll,” is currently on iTunes. —Ralph Bristout

    i dont like that he’s starting beef… MGK isnt as big as him. it may work negatively against him, MGK may just be lookin for a piggy back.

  • BSD

    he isn’t starting beef. MGK started it. He thinks yela took shots on him on his cypher. Even though there are plenty white rappers. MGK is sensitive and cathes feelings like a female. No wonder he signed with diddy. He go soft.

  • RealNigga

    why does rap have to be so damn stereotypical???? two white rappers going at it for “the white rapper” crown…..why can’t they co-exist????? this is just slightly different between the Nicki & Kim Beef…..and I saw this happening at least 6 months ago once I started hearing about MGK…..I guess in their minds there can only be one…SMH

  • JugularKill

    I’m sorry I’m a bad person but I love seeing white people beef.

    I remember when I stepped out a club (95% BLACK) and saw 2 white guys fighting. I loved it.

    Real talk I don’t really like it but it’s like….hey tables turned. White people love watching us fight each other, funny to see it the other way

  • PapaJon

    Two things. First, Yelawolf talkin’ some bullshit in this interview. “Say my name” MF? Okay, then if you weren’t talking about Kelly in the Cypher when you mention “other white rappers” then who WERE you talking about? “Say their names” Yela. Second, this is a stupid-ass beef. Internet idiots already compare these two way too much, even though the ONLY thing they have in common is skin color and tatoos. This bullshit only gonna make it worse. Bootleg Kev is an ass for instigating.


    Jelly Roll and Yelawolf are the only white rappers worth payin attention to out of the newer cats, the rest are hot garbage.
