Machine Gun Kelly had closed the Chicago’s Riot Fest on Sunday, September 19. He was called out by the metal band Slipknot at the same time when they were closing out the same music festival from a different stage.

The singer had apparently asked the lights to be turned on while he said, “Let me see who chose to be here instead of with all the old, weird dudes with masks”. On the other hand, Chicago Sun Times reported that the rapper turned punk-rocker addressed his audience; seemingly responding to MGK’s comments.

He said, “Hey, you all know what I’m really happy that I’m not doing? Being 50 years old, wearing a f**in’ weird mask on a f**in’ stage”. After this incident, Machine Gun Kelly took to social media to take another dig at the band. This led to Corey Taylor, the lead vocalist to hit back at the singer.

MGK taking that dig did not go down well with the band’s loyal fans either who have been loving their music since 1995. They dragged the singer on the internet and claimed that Eminem ended his rap career; and Slipknot will end his rock career.

This is in connection to MGK wanting to collaborate with the band for his now-award winning album, Tickets to My Downfall. MGK’s diss came after Taylor in one of the recent interviews. 

He was saying that he hates all new rock and the artists who failed in one genre and decided to go rock. The singer further took to Twitter after the onstage mocking and said it is very odd that when one artist talks “s–t” and he responds; he is the bad guy.

The Bloody Valentine hitmaker revealed the reason behind the dissing and the entire mess. He shared that Corey had done a verse for a song on tickets to my downfall album. The singer added that it was terrible and he did not use it.
