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, the guy kept plenty busy as he produced and starred in The Land, the gritty drama from up-and-coming director Steven Caple Jr., and he had a monster hit with the poppy single "Bad Things," a duet with Camila Cabello. Look for a new studio release, Bloom, to arrive this year. Despite his hectic schedule, MGK still finds time to play in town at least a few times a year. And he proudly represents Cleveland every place he goes.
