Machine Gun Kelly at Skully's
Prohibition-era gangster George Kelly Barnes was better known as Machine Gun Kelly. So is rapid-fire Cleveland rapper Colson Baker, who'll appear at Skully's on Saturday alongside the latest edition of Royal Columbus and Power 107.5's"Are You Radio Ready?" contest.
"Lace Up," MGK's mix tape with DJ E-V, exhibits an emcee well aware of his technical prowess. On "I Know," he boasts, "Musta came outta the womb with 10 rockets!" The same song name-checks Ben Wallace, so he's probably not too worried about scoring cool points, just spitting straight fire.
