The 21 year-old Ohio rapper, Richard Colson Baker, better known as “Machine Gun Kelly“, can definitely back up the bad boy persona he gives off.
The young artist, signed with Bad Boy Entertainment, is performing at the MTVU’s Woodie Awards Festival in Austin, TX currently going on right now. It can be watched via live stream on the MTVU website.
MGK is also nominated for the Breaking Woodie Award, an award to recognize the audience’s favorite up-and-coming artists. Other nominees include A$AP Rocky, Azealia Banks, Charlie XCX, and many more.
The Breaking Woodie Award would only be an addition to the other recognitions this young Ohio rapper has received. Fuse says that he has been voted MTV’s 2011 Breakthrough MC and one of the Top Freshman of 2012 by XXL Magazine.
Currently, MGK has released a track featuring Mystikal that has received much positive feedback from the public, according to Fuse. He is also working with DMX on a new track.
