06/24: Diddy, Jimmy Iovine Urge Machine Gun Kelly to Stop "Playing with Fire"; Rapper Profiled by The Plain Dealer
Cleveland's The Plain Dealer newspaper put Machine Gun Kelly on the cover of today's Sunday edition
. The profile written by John Soeder
makes for an interesting read.
They discussed the flash mob that led to his arrest
, the origins of the phrase "lace up" and his loyalty to Cleveland.
He opened up about drug abuse that he was able to put a stop to last year after his "musical crew" threatened to leave him. Recently, after some trouble that he declined to detail, he found himself on the phone with Bad Boy CEO Diddy and Interscope Geffen A&M Records Chairman Jimmy Iovine.
"'Quit playing with fire.' That was what they said to me," MGK told Soeder. "They said, 'Why do you always choose the dumbest [expletive] to play with? If you play with fire, you're going to get burned.' I guess I'm finally learning that."
