In 1990, Colson Baker was born to missionary parents. At different points in his youth, he lived in Egypt, Germany, Chicago, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Denver. After his mother left his family, MGK and his father settled at Colson’s aunt’s house in Denver, CO. During Colson’s youth, his father was often depressed and unemployed – his home life was unstable and contentious. He attended the ethnically diverse Hamilton Middle School and was bullied. As a pre-teen, Colson started to listen to Ludacris and DMX. Later on, MGK attended Thomas Jefferson High School in Denver. When his father moved to Kuwait to work for the army, Colson lived in a neighbor’s basement. During this period, MGK recorded his first amateur tapes.
After Colson’s stint in Colorado, his family moved to Cleveland and MGK released his critically acclaimed mix tape Stamp of Approval (2006). During this time, his profile and reputation began to blossom – he became known for his rapid-fire delivery (henceforth the rap name Machine Gun Kelly). MGK is the first white rapper to perform at the fabled Apollo Theater and was also featured on MTV2’s Sucker Free Freestyle. His two studio albums include Lace Up (2012) and also General Admission (2015).
General Admission tickets at the Ogden are sold out, but VIP tickets are still available! General admission tickets to the Rawkus show in Colorado Springs are available. These Machine Gun Kelly dates are two not-to-be-missed concerts in Denver and Colorado Springs.
