Machine Gun Kelly Disses The Fader and XXL Magazine

Machine Gun Kelly has some issues with The Fader and XXL, respectively. He says as much on his latest freestyle, “Champions,” which finds him rapping over the classic Roc-A-Fella “Dream Team” instrumental.

MGK spits: “Yet and a couple people got a problem with me up hater magazine/ I mean Fader magazine, tell the journalist to suck what’s in my sagging jeans/ Choke mothafucka choke, none of my fans opened up your magazine…”

Then he throws what could be perceived as a diss — but probably isn’t — towards Kendrick Lamar.

Charlemagne [Tha God] don’t like me, what’s his name won’t fight me/ I’m a hype individual goddamnit hypebeast hype me/ Maybe cause I wasn’t a good kid in a mad city like Kendrick/ I was just a little bad mothafucka begging landlords to be a tenant.”

At the end of the accompanying video for the tune, an email from Fader Editor-In-Chief Matthew Schnipper is shown.

“It’s difficult for me to foresee a time in which we will be featuring Machine Gun Kelly in The Fader,” Schnipper writes.

Then a voicemail is played alerting Kelly that a XXL article on him has been pulled from magazine.

Getting slighted on coverage aside, we’re not exactly sure Kelly has reason to beef.

The Ohio-bred MC performed at The Fader Fort at SXSW in 2011 and covered XXL’s 2012 Freshman issue a year later.
