If there is one thing that we really look forward to in Western New York and Southern Ontario is a good show, event, or concert.

So far in 2023, there is no shortage of great events for us to check out this year, with shows from the likes of Kevin Hart, Patti Labelle, Pitbull, and more having already come to Buffalo. Along with several other shows en route for later this summer like 50 Cent, Post Malone, Ludacris, KC & The Sunshine Band, and more.

Now another concert, featuring rapper Machine Gun Kelly has been announced, and you may want to put this on your to do list.

Who is MGK?

Born in Houston, TX, Colson Baker was raised in Cleveland, OH, and started to become interested in rap while in the 6th grade. He often credits Ludacris, DMX, and Eminem as the first rappers he became a fan of and their styles influenced him.

He earned his break in the music industry after traveling to the Apollo Theater in Harlem to perform during amateur night. He won several consecutive nights, becoming the first rapper to ever do so, and raising his profile enough to get him featured on MTV2's Sucker Free Freestyle show.

Not too long after that MGK was approached by Diddy and signed to Bad Boy Records.

Since he's earned several Gold and Platinum records, along with his singles Wild Boy, Bad Things, I Think I'm OK, and My Ex's Best Friend also earning multi-platinum awards.
