MACHINE GUN KELLY
Delivering lyrics with the speed of a bullet train, Cleveland rapper Machine Gun Kelly experienced a meteoric rise in late 2011 when he transitioned from grinding out self-released mixtapes to working with major labels. From there, the rapper skyrocketed to superstar status, with each of his albums charting in the Top Ten. In April 2020, he released “Bloody Valentine,” an upbeat and melodic emo pop song dotted with synth touches. Successive singles “Concert for Aliens” and “Misery Business” followed a similar stylistic change-up.
