What Is Machine Gun Kelly’s Net Worth?

What Is Machine Gun Kelly’s Net Worth?

As Machine Gun Kelly - aka Colson Baker - prepares to release his sixth studio album, with Travis Barker as drummer, fans want to know exactly how much the rapper-turned-pop-punk artist is worth in 2021.

Born on 22nd April 1990 in Texas, MGK began his music career by making mix-tapes. His first studio album, Lace Up, was released in 2012 and he's pretty much been killing it ever since.

The 'Rap Devil' rapper is casual mates with the Kardashians - as is his drummer Travis Barker, who's currently dating Kourtney - and is known for his ongoing beef with Eminem - which we'll get into later.

He's currently dating the beautiful Megan Fox; the two went official won Instagram in July 2020.

Machine Gun Kelly Net Worth 2021

MGK is reportedly worth a staggering $10 million (£7.2 million) in 2021.


As well as five hugely successful albums (with a sixth on the way), MGK has cashed in on lucrative partnerships with big brands such as Reebok and Young & Reckless over the years.

MGK has also dabbled in acting. He tends to play smaller roles in films however, so it's unlikely his paychecks from film appearances significantly contribute to the $30,000 per month AirBnB he and Megan Fox are renting at the moment.

But one question fans want to know the answer to is whether MGK is worth more than his long-standing rival Eminem.

Who is worth more - Eminem or MGK?


While MGK's net worth is certainly nothing to sniff at, it's only a fraction of the figure which represents Eminem's net worth in 2021.

The Slim Shady rapper is worth an eye-watering $200 million (£166 million) in 2021.

What happened with MGK and Eminem?

MGK and Eminem have been in a long-term feud since 2012 after MGK wrote a Tweet saying Eminem's daughter was "hot as f**k". At the time, Hailie, was 16 and MGK was around 21-years-old.


As you can imagine, this didn't go down well with her highly protective father and it's reported that Eminem 'blacklisted' the 'Bad Things' singer from several radio stations in the US.

In true rapper style, the two have been chucking burns at each other over the last decade in their songs and various diss tracks, so we have the feud to thank for some absolute bangers.

Eminem's 'Killshot,' which was released in 2018, is basically a massive roasting of MGK. One verse reads:

"Here's that autograph for your daughter, I wrote it on a Starter cap


Stan, son, listen, man, dad isn't mad

But how you gonna name yourself after a damn gun and have a man bun?"

When is MGK's new album coming out?

MGK gave us a taste of what's to come in his sixth studio album in August, with a snippet of one of the tracks on Instagram, which hasn't been named yet.

We expect the full album, Born With Horns, to arrive soon, but he's keeping a tight lid on it.
