Yelawolf and Machine Gun Kelly have a history of throwing shots at each other. It all started last year when MGK did an interview while he was drunk and did a Yelawolf impression that Yela didn’t appreciate. The misunderstanding was further amplified during the BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher, when people began saying that MGK took a few subliminal shots at Yela.
Well, the two are back at it. During a recent interview with Shade 45, Yelawolf took a shot at MGK when asked about the comparisons between the two. Check out what he said below:
“Who?” “It’s probably the most insulting thing on the planet, to be asked to sign a Machine Gun Kelly autograph. ‘Yo MGK?’ I’m like ‘Yea, motherf***er. Let me sign your Birkenstocks.’”
Yelawolf also took the opportunity to express his frustration for his label for the lack of support for Radioactive.
“I’m all about figuring sh** out, for myself and my art. My last project, Radioactive, was deliberately given to Interscope … and it was on a f***ing silver platter, given to them to work,” he explained to Rude Jude. “It was radio records after radio records, purposely, was my attempt. These motherf***ers have given me one single in 11 months. I don’t really understand where the importance is lined. That’s just me being real, every artist gets frustrated at some point, I imagine.
“I fully comprised, but I let everybody know, even prior to doing Radioactive, what I was doing. I was being honest with my fans,” Yelawolf continued. “I was like ‘Yea, I’m letting people in. We’re gonna so something more melodic.’ The album’s called ‘Radioactive’ — to be ‘active’ on ‘radio’. Like, it was a purposeful shot for me, because I felt like I had a window to use. Like, I could gain … pull some people in with this sh**. I don’t know what the f*** they’re doing up there. Shady’s great, I love Shady Records. I just think there’s some sh** going on upstairs.”
Yelawolf is currently working on a gang of projects. His first project will be a mixtape/free album, titled The Heart Of Dixie with Alabama producer M16, which is due on July 4. It will be followed by a collaborative effort with Travis Barker called Psycho White, released as part of capsule collection with Famous Stars & Straps; and finally, an upcoming installment of his Trunk Muzik series, aptly titled Trunk Musik Returns, is on its way as well. Work!
