Machine Gun Kelly (Colson Baker) and Slipknot icon Corey Taylor are locked into a bitter feud. Taylor has responded and shared receipts to counteract Machine-Gun Kelly’s claims that the frontman was left wounded after being supposedly dropped from a potential collaboration.

It all began when Slipknot’s frontman took shots at MGK on a recent podcast, Cutter’s Rockcast on February 20. He remarked:

“I hate everything. I hate all new rock for the most part. I hate the artists who failed in one genre and decided to go rock-and I think he knows who he is. But that’s another story.”

Taylor criticized musicians that basically take something that’s been around forever and then basically rework it and call it new-even though it’s completely derivative and lacks originality.

Although he did not mention MGK listeners have speculated that he was pointing to the songwriter and actor.

MGK’S music has been criticized by some for simply recycling the popular punk sounds that have already been heard before in sounds of bands such as Blink-182. This is spoken for in this particular album review from ARTV:

MGK was then filmed making comments about Taylor’s band Slipknot who were performing at the same event. MGK made these age-shamed comments during his own performance at Riot Fest on Sunday 19 September.

“You wanna know what I’m really happy that I’m not doing? Being 50 years old wearing f***ing weird mask on a f***ing stage.”

This did not go well with the public who heard the news and criticized the artist on social media. Here are some comments from those who criticized him:

More recently MGK revealed the reason why Corey was even disapproving of him in the first place. He wrote on Twitter:

This exposure led Taylor to finally have enough and defend himself. Taylor shared messages between himself and Travis Barker that appeared to showcase a discussion about one of his songs. Taylor tweeted to his large following:

Taylor shared two screenshots of emails. One, from Barker which had sent feedback from MGK saying that Taylor had ‘killed it’ with his contributions and he was ‘honoured’ to have the Slipknot frontman even be on the track.  Baker added:

“F*** yeah tell him he rocks.”

MGK then added some notes to subsequent changes he’d made to the song and certain requests for Taylor’s second half of the verse.

Taylor’s response confirms how he wished to respond negatively to MGK’S wishes to rework his contributions. Taylor declined MGK’S feedback, from the receipts provided on Twitter of Taylor’s respondent email to Barker.

“I listened to the ideas and to be honest, I don’t think I’m the right guy for the track. Nothing personal, I just think if this is what MGK is looking for, someone else is the guy to do it.”

Despite declining the arrangement, Taylor politely remarked that he was stoked for MGK and wished the guys the best for the musical project.

This isn’t the first time Kelly has gone head-to-head with another artist and follows a highly publicized spat with rapper Eminem. After calling Eminem’s daughter “hot” in a tweet, Eminem banned Kelly from his radio station, and the pair become embroiled in taking shots at each other via diss tracks.

MGK has not yet responded to Taylor’s receipts. It’s hard to tell if this is a genius marketing plan from the two men, or if this is a genuine feud however either way it’s keeping us all very entertained. Time for your shot MGK.
