It seems like “Wild Boy” Machine Gun Kelly shows his true Cleveland colors by taking a small jab at his hometowns favorite villain, LeBron James. On the Steve-O inspired anthem, “Wild Boy” MGK spits “Never mind that’s just Kells with that heat, no LeBron though.” Obviously with LeBron recently making it to the NBA finals for the 3rd time in his career with still no championship ring, it resulted in quality conversation when the Cleveland native stepped into the Power 107.5 studio.
When confronted about his little stab at King James, Kells instantly replied with “oh no, he’s not taking it” indicating his belief that there is no way LBJ will finally get his ring by the end of this year. The 22-year-old Bad Boy artist continued to make even bolder statements regarding the future of LeBron’s legacy going so far as to say “if he doesn’t do it this year then he won’t do it again, he’ll be too mentally defeated.” Although he does bring up a solid point, we all can believe this stems from a little hometown-bias from the obnoxious “Decision” special that played on ESPN when LeBron “took his talents to South Beach” which resulted in the heartbreak of every Cleveland basketball fan.
With the finals approaching tomorrow night, we’ll soon be able to answer that everlasting question for ourselves. And with MGK’s album Lace Up expected to drop sometime this summer and the buzz for “Wildboy” constantly growing, we’ll see if the tatted-up Cleveland boy can win the championship for him and his team over at Bad Boy.
