Machine Gun Kelly has been running his mouth off about other musicians once again, and this time it has come right out of leftfield. The rapper has decided to have a pop at mask-wearing nu-metal stalwarts Slipknot:
Yep, it's the crossover beef that we never knew we needed and it unfolded at Riot Fest this weekend in Chicago.
You see, it seems as if Kelly - real name Colson Baker - was scheduled up at the same time as the Iowan guitar chuggers, and wanted to chuck some shade their way whilst they were on the other stage rocking out.
After all, he's no stranger to this sort of thing, having called out Eminem in a number of diss tracks in the past, and he nearly got into a scrap with Conor McGregor the other day, too!
Anyway, both Kelly and Slipknot played sets at the gig which took place at 8:30pm, with Slipknot being granted a 75-minute set whilst MGK only got an hour.
Somewhere in the path of that hour, Kelly decided to tell his fans about what he was 'really happy' not to be doing.
He said: "Hey, you wanna know what I'm really happy that I'm not doing?
"Being 50 years old wearing a f*****g weird mask on a stage, talking s**t."
Weirdly, he then added: "So anyway, what's everyone's favourite candy? Reese's Pieces?"
Later on in the show, according to the Chicago Sun-Time, Kelly aimed another barb at the band.
Before a run-through of 'All I Know', he said: "Turn the lights up,
"Let me see who chose to be here instead of with all the old weird dudes with masks."
Now, you might think that this is a completely unprovoked and isolated occurrence, but it seems as if there might have been some reason for Kelly's dislike for Corey Taylor and company.
Back in February, whilst Taylor was promoting his 2020 album called 'CMFT', he admitted that he hates 'all new rock for the most part'.
That said, he did also say that he was an 'old fogey dude' who hates just about everything.
Speaking on Cutter's Rockcast, he said: "I [hate] the artists who failed in one genre and decided to go rock... and I think he knows who he is."
Evidently, it seems like he does.
Taylor continued: "But that's another story. I'm the worst and I hate everything.
"People are used to that with me, though. But I have also encouraged a younger generation to think past the boundaries of what we listen to."
Is that enough to finally kill the longstanding rumours of a collab between Slipknot and Machine Gun Kelly?
Just kidding, that would be awful to listen to, wouldn't it?
