Machine Gun Kelly Biography
Colson Baker, better known by his nickname Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), was born on April 22, 1990, to missionary parents in Houston, the USA. His family moved all around the world, and Kelly spent his early childhood in places such as Egypt, Germany, and throughout the United States.
Tragedy struck him early on as his mother left home. As if this were any less, his father suffered from depression and unemployment. MGK studied at Hamilton Middle School and later at Denver’s Thomas Jefferson High School. While in high school, he experimented with drugs.
Later, Colson Baker enrolled at Shaker Heights High School. It was here that his music career began. He convinced a local t-shirt shop owner to double as his manager. During this time, Baker gained his stage name Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) from his fans due to his rapid-fire delivery name.
