Bad Boy Records’ Machine Gun Kelly recently updated fans on his stance toward G.O.O.D. Music star Kid Cudi and admitted while things are not quite peachy, he has no real problems with Cudder.
According to MGK, he has made past attempts to link up with Cudi to iron things out.
Eventually, the Bad Boy MC came around and tried to break down the issue between him and the G.O.O.D. Music standout. “He feels a certain way about me, to my knowledge. I keep trying to meet him, just never happened,” Kelly said. “I take certain things certain ways. Certain comments you can just tell are about you.” “In my honest opinion, I believe, as an O.G. like Cudi, who has been in the game two albums now, as an older guy, I’ll be looking at a young cat coming out of Cleveland and put my arm around him. Because that’s definitely what I’m doing,” MGK said. “I guess I’m just a little bitter on that, but all respect to everybody. I’m not gonna lie and say I’m not a fan of his music.” (MTV)
A year ago, Kells tried to explain why he wanted to focus on music over Cudi.
“There’s no issue on my end,” Kelly promised in an interview. “That just shows me I’m doing something. That just shows me other motherf*ckers aren’t doing something when you got time to sit there and be mad about a motherf*cker using a word that everyone uses — You can come to one of my shows and see who wakes people the f*ck up. It’s me and that’s what raging is. Raging is being yourself and turning all that negative energy into a positive and partying…I’m not about to set my city back ten years by starting a beef with a motherf*cker in my city even though that motherf*cker’s never in the city. It actually just pissed me off. It’s a word. You didn’t start the word and I didn’t start the word. It’s a f*cking word. Just like let’s see who does it best and it’s clearly the f*cking fans that are at my shows. It’s no issue.” (Karen Civil)
A week prior, Cudi said he should be credited as the rage originator.
“There’s only one original Rager, and thats me. I started this ‘rage’ sh*,” he wrote August 26th. “The lifestyle, the term, the whole new meaning and definition of the word. Understand and be clear, IAM THE RAGER, IAM FOREVER. When you hear ANYONE talking bout ‘rage’ or ‘raging’, know where that sh*t originated. Guess ima have to do some trademarkin’. ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES. WE LIVE THIS SH*T!” (Kid Cudi’s Tumblr)
The words caught wind of Kelly who defended his contribution to raging.
Shortly after the post also simultaneously posted on Cudi’s Twitter (@WizardCud), Cleveland newcomer Machine Gun Kelly responded with an angry tweet, calling Cudi “jealous”, most likely for his quick rise. “If i was you, i’d hate me too…you jealous muf*cka. 216 what up. EST what up. lace the f*** up,” wrote Kelly (@MachineGunKelly). “Headed to the show, hereeeeee we go AZ lemme see what kind of #powerRAGERS yall are working with.” (BallerStatus)
