In 2018, Machine Gun Kelly invited a dog he spotted in a video howling along to his hit, “Habits.” The dog’s owner wrote on Twitter, “@machinegunkelly this video though, my dog is ur #1 fan.”
He responded by giving his dog a front row seat at his next concert.
Colson Baker better known as Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) was born April 22, 1990. He reached an audience after a release of four mixtapes between 2007 and 2010 and later signed with Bad Boy Records. He released his debut studio album, Lace Up, in 2012, which peaked at number four on the US Billboard 200 and contained his breakout single “Wild Boy” (featuring Waka Flocka Flame). His second and third albums, General Admission (2015) and Bloom (2017), achieved similar commercial success; the latter included the single “Bad Things” (with Camila Cabello), which peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. His fourth album, Hotel Diablo (2019), included rap rock.
On August 9, 2021, he announced that his next album will be titled Born With Horns, and will be another collaborative project with Barker. The first single, “Papercuts”, was released on August 11.
