MGK Say Statements Misunderstood

Machine Gun Kelly came forward to clear up a misunderstanding between he and Yelawolf after the Shady Records rapper challenged him last week over statements he made on a radio show.

The Ohio rapper claimed that there is absolutely no beef between him and the Yela and insisted that he was misunderstood.

“[Do] I have a problem with Yelawolf? No. I don’t think Hip Hop needs that. I think it’s corny when it’s two white guys. Especially when we’re cut from the same type of cloth,” he said.

“I think that I’m young and I’m wild and I say some things, things just fly out of my mouth that are taken a different way. The thing with Yelawolf didn’t start with the Cypher thing. It started with me doing an interview – more like multiple interviews. I always get the Yelawolf question, comparisons and stuff like that. You start answering in a different way – it’s hard to explain.”

The Bad Boy signee said the perceived misunderstanding started with his impersonation of Yelawolf during an interview with The Breakfast Club, but says his words weren’t meant to anger the rapper.

“The interview that they were referring to when Yelawolf did do the interview and he saw the stuff was when I was drunk and talking stuff. It wasn’t bad what I said. I just think it’s a Yelawolf impression – I don’t know where it went wrong. Honestly, everything I’m doing is all in good fun, man. I think people took things the wrong way. We never had the chance to speak,” he said. I’m 21, man. I’m going to say some stuff that people aren’t going to understand.”
