Machine Gun Kelly

Better known as Machine Gun Kelly, rapper and actor Richard Colson Baker just might be the most popular act to come out of Cleveland in the past decade. Last year, he dropped General Admission, the long-delayed followup to 2012's Lace Up. He played a few special local CD release shows when the album came out and spent the end of last year playing shows throughout Europe. The album did well in its first week; it debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, reportedly selling some 50,000 copies in the first week of release. MGK finished the year with two sold-out House of Blues shows.
