  • MGK is currently dating actress Megan Fox 

Machine Gun Kelly’s net worth is around $10 million and he flaunts it from time to time.

Born Richard Colson Baker, the American rapper is one of the more polarizing artists in the industry today. Bashers have called him Eminem wannabe, but Machine Gun Kelly has his own brand of music.

Eminem, Marshall Mathers III in real life, is actually at odds with Machine Gun Kelly. The two have traded barbs with their songs since 2018. Eminem reportedly banned Baker from his radio program after the latter made lewd comments on Eminem’s daughter.

In 2018, Eminem dissed MGK in his song “Kamikaze” and MGK retaliated with “Rap Devil.” The “Lose Yourself” hitmaker made sure he had the last laugh in their battle with “Killshot,” a report from CapitalXtra revealed. After that, Baker has chosen not to release a diss track as a response.

On the personal side, MGK is currently romantically involved with actress Megan Fox after her split with now ex-husband Brian Austin Green. Megan and Green have three children together. Meanwhile, Baker has a daughter named Casie Colson Baker.

Rapping was a way for Baker to cope up with bullying when he was younger. Soon, he realized he was good at it. He adopted the moniker “Machine Gun Kelly” as a reference to two things: an American gangster who was locked up in Alcatraz and the way he delivers fast-paced bars.

When not busy making music, Machine Gun Kelly lends his talent in acting. He appeared in several movies such as “Beyond the Lights,” “The Land,” “Bird Box,” “The Dirt,” and “Big Time Adolescence,” per Celebrity Net Worth.

The 30-year-old debuted his first mixtape “Stamp of Approval” in 2007. He followed it up with a sophomore mixtape called “100 Words and Running.” However, his breakout song “Alice in Wonderland” in 2010 cemented his status as one of the upcoming young talents at that time. MGK won several awards for that song.

The Houston, Texas native released "Bad Things," a collaboration with Camila Cabello in 2016. Last year, he launched his fourth album called “Hotel Diablo.” It contained tracks featuring YUNGBLUD and Travis Barker. The “Blink 182” drummer will also be included in the 2020 album “Tickets to my Downfall.”

MGK’s success story is something to be admired. He went from working at Chipotle to earn some money to support his child to owning a purple Aston Martin that carries a price tag of $220,000.
