Machine Gun Kelly On His Standing In Hip-Hop: “There’s No Way I’m Not In The Top Five”
Machine Gun Kelly speaks to Boss Lady in a fairly awkward interview on SiriusXM in support of his recently-released mixtape—or free album, as he’s referring to it—Black Flag. Boss Lady kicks things off by immediately comparing MGK’s name switch up to J. Lo, which gets everything off on the right foot, before Kelly explains that this tape sees him at the top of his game. He also touches on the disrespect he feels he gets—from Coachella, from the established music industry—and says he’s inspired a lot of rappers, but he’s been denied entrance to the “class of hip-hop.” “If I’m honestly not considered in the top ten lyricists of right now?” he asks. “You can’t tell my fans that there’s a better rapper than Machine Gun Kelly…Hands down, there’s no way I’m not in the top five.” Check out the full video above.
