The Corey Taylor-Machine Gun Kelly drama is getting bigger.
MGK apparently dissed the Slipknot frontman onstage over the weekend saying he was happy to not be a 50-year-old wearing a mask.
A few hours later, Kelly followed up with a tweet, saying that Taylor did some work for his album “Tickets to My Downfall” and “it was f*cking terrible,” so he didn’t use it. He then called Taylor bitter.
corey did a verse for a song on tickets to my downfall album, it was fucking terrible, so i didn’t use it.
he got mad about it, and talked shit to a magazine about the same album he was almost on.
yalls stories are all off.
just admit he’s bitter.

The Slipknot frontman fired back on Twitter today saying, “I don’t like people airing private sh*t like a child. So this is all I’ll say: I didn’t do the track because I don’t like when people try to ‘write’ for me. I said no to them. So without further ado…. #receipts. This is all I’m going to say about it.”
Taylor then attached two screenshots. One was a message that he received from Blink-182’s Travis Barker, who also worked on T”ickets to My Downfall.” Barker’s email claimed that he and Kelly loved what Taylor sent them, and included notes from MGK underneath.
basically, your verse was really bad.
respectfully, i was just telling you to rewrite it because it was really bad.
but let’s do a britney spears song cover together 🤘🏼

said Taylor “killed it” and that he was “stoked” and “honored” to have Taylor on the track.
Who do you believe?
