Machine Gun Kelly Signs With Bad Boy

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but Ohio rapper Machine Gun Kelly has officially become the newest member of the Bad Boy team. He will be prepping his debut album, Lace Up to drop later this year.

“MGK is a great addition to the Bad Boy team,” Bad Boy President, Harve Pierre said. “He speaks for a generation of kids who are just like him. Fans relate immediately to his lyrics, his flow and his energetic live performances.”

    Congrats MGK ! Sean “Career Killah” Combs is at it again.

  • The Dope Rush were gonna take this kid out, Diddy did it for them.

  • FlocKaveLLi

    the worst decision any up and coming artist can make is signing with diddy and the rest of them career-killing fools. sorry mgk

  • Tim Lee VA Stand Up

    Funny, as if you guys EVER promote this kids shit, and now you do when he signs to Bad Boy? WAAAAAAAACCCKKK.

  • College is too expensive…no way to justify $50,000 a year so I can be unemployed. We need to boycott for a year to set those boys straight…

  • NoNotToday

    He will be strung out on drugs, booty hole wore out and broke with in a few years…

  • Bg

    Never ever saw the hype behind this dude. Just another white guy that can rap fast.

  • atlyryder

    If his album comes about before Red Cafe album, Red Cafe, should quit. Even though this kid will sell more than Cafe and has a more younger and relevant fan base.

  • RB

    R.I.P to MGK career

  • WTF!


    MGK been signed to bad boy. I don’t know why they just doing this press release. Cafe scared to put out a song by himself. He been in the game 15 years and still need someone to hold his hand. If people only play your music because you put Fabolous or Rick Ross or whoever on it , that means they don’t fuck with you.

  • Tyler

    @ Tim Lee VA Stand Up

    Yea I feel you bro, that’s how they do it over at rap radar lmao fucking herbs

  • atlyryder

    Seem like Diddy soured on Red Cafe quick. He wasn’t nowhere to be found on Diddy-Dirty Money album, the remixes, or the mixtape. When the tour came to my town he wasn’t on that either. Tyga was lol! Now he gonna get skipped by the white boy hatcher. I bet MGK have a song w/ diddy or a video on BET by end of next week. Asher Roth proved you don’t need black folks and the hood anymore to survive in the rap game. You won’t be huge but you can do ok.

  • blackzone

  • pissed

    Haha I hope he’s prepared to sit on that roster for 3 years, no release date, and he will get dropped & alubm shelved. This kid obviously doesn’t know the “history” of most artists that sign to Diddy. It’s whatever, dude is below average on a good day anyway lol

  • CarreraLu

    @ R.E.D. and the rest of you haters.

    Shut the fuck up. Until you listen to the kids work, keep your assuming opinions to your self.
    Maybe DL Lace Up mixtape? Lace Up > Anything YMCMB put out in the past year.


  • Congrats…but BIG mistake.

  • Wtf is dis?

    Oh, He’s Yt?
    Milk him dry,diddy!haha!

  • This kid’s got a loyal fanbase. If Diddy can’t build off that he should never sign another rapper.

  • Eminem is a homo who take it up the butt

    More white trash music!!!!!

  • fuk waka

    oh kool he is done now… this is like signing to gunit now lol

  • Cali’s Finest

    ^ LOL you can tell this Guy Is Racist.
    STFU with that Color shit already. it ain’t even about that no more. it’s MUSIC.
    take your hating ass to the KKK with that shit youngin!

    Diddy had a chance with Jay Elec. he blew it! i never even knew Bad Boy was still a Label!?

  • reeeez

    white people always trying steal our shit

  • Kunta Kente

    Fuck Yelawolf lil’ brother. Crackers always have it easy in music business. Diddy will be in all his videos. Diddy desprate, Jay Electronica and Odd Future both said fuck Bad Boy.

  • Diddy is a trend rider, that’s how he stays relevant. He saw Em swoop Yela, Wiz groom Mac Miller, Souljah Boy grab RiFF RAFF, and Sony get in bed with Kreayshawn, and thought “what white rapper can I sign?” Who is even on Bad Boy?

  • pablo escobar jr

    cant wait to hear puffys mgk flow

  • pablo escobar jr

    and this should give puffy another 2 or 3 years of relevancy…..until he finds another up and coming rapper or singer to ride. Its a hell of an ego.

    After losing out on jay electronically diddy picked up the worst consolation prize ever! Don’t compare this dude to yelawof either, yela is nice this guys blows. Signing to bad boy just means no other major made an offer lol

  • who???

    white suckas gonna slowly take over the rape game WTF?!?!?! first they steal your culture and then they fuck you up… omg i hate those white bitches who wish to be black like us… fuck them!

  • Damn y’all haters are slipping, ain’t one of y’all gon throw him under the bus for that receding hairline?



    These new white rappers sure have these black folks trippin.
    Good to see racism is alive and well.

    He’s sooooooooooo HAWT! And yes, i’m gay. I want his babies inside of me!

  • Undeniably consider that that you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst folks consider issues that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as well as outlined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , other people can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you
