This is the first rap/hiphop cd I have purchased in a long time. The rap world/game for the most part has been lost for a long time. Listening to general admission from front to back was incredible. It's crazy the mad story telling skills you put into this album. Every song has a point and a message. Hearing and thinking about each line and lyric makes me reflect on my own life and life in general of what people can go through in life. The talent of rapping each song blows me away with your ability to speed up and slow down right with the rhythm. Keep this up and the level you can reach could go to a legendary status. I don't have social media so this is the only way to reach you. Canada would be lucky to see you in concert. I hope you will come to Calgary or Edmonton Alberta because the level of music creation would be a shame not to see in person. Never shy away from your roots as you have given the world a glimps into a world of tragedy, heartbreak, love, hope and your love for the city Cleveland.
Truly inspirational.

I recently lost my close sister a week back, I would really like to get a hold of Machine Gun Kelly to tell him how much my WHOLE family appreciates him, because my sister Alethea wore her favorite MGK shirt in her casket she burned with it and all of our casket bearers wore "EST 4 LIFE" "LACE UP" shirts for her because she loved MGK soooo much well, we all do! Also we have been to a couple MGK shows and we absolutely love him! And we also played MGK music on her slideshow. I would like to thank him for basically being him! He is our inspiration. ❤️

I was suicidal for a long time and one day my sister made me listen to mgk and he inspired me. He made me rethink about living and now i listen to him before every basketball and soccer game to encourage myself. I wish i could meet mgk for my birthday and thank him for saving me during a rough time

My son recently passed away at his own hands, he shot himself. It happened on Oct. 6, 2015 just 3 very LONG months ago. He was your biggest fan and was planning to attend your concert that same month but wasn't able to. At his visitation at the funeral we played your song 'End of the Road'. If there is anyway you could maybe dedicate that song to him in some way, I would be truly grateful. His name is Jared Payne and he was 24 yrs old and loved your music so much. It still feels so unreal that he is gone and I'm struggling with it everyday!!! Thank you for reading this!!! A very broken hearted Mom who misses her son so much!!!

MGK's music has gotten me thru countless different traumas in my life, my sister tried to hang herself and I saved her at the last possible moment,also I was raped at gunpoint at my surprise 16th birthday party by a "chaperon" who happened to be a cop. I am also a recovering heroin addict who almost died multiple times.My daughter passed away at the age of 2 due to a brain aneurysm, I have had 4 miscarriages and 1 stillborn child, which I have now found out I am not capable of having children and that's all I've ever wanted in life is to have kids again. And most recently my boyfriend that I lived with at the time beat me so bad that I damaged my voice box due to strangulation(which I LOVE singing and playing the electric violin) I was in a coma for 2 weeks from all the other damages that occurred. I am from Cleveland (CLE Till I Die Bitch)and my parents told the nurses that my favorite artist was MGK and while in my coma the nurses put headphones on me playing every MGK album. When I finally came out of my coma I woke up listening to " See my tears" which hit me pretty hard cus the first thing I thought of was that I will not ever let the motherfucker that beat me ever "See my tears"again not even during the court proceedings cus that's exactly what he wants to see and it gives him power over me, and I will NOT allow that. I've not always been the strongest person but ironically my name means "Strength" and I am learning to be strong. And a lot of that has to do with MGk's music. It's,healing,beautiful,powerful,strong,authentic,sacred,new age,creative,descriptive,emotional,sic,brave,dynamic, daring,raw as shit...I could go on and on. Needless to say MGK has gotten me thru some of the toughest times of my life, just listening to his music give me HOPE and inspiration and makes me want to be somebody that I know that I can be. Yes my life hasn't exactly been easy but I'm the type of person that I do not want people feeling bad for me, especially since we as humans all have a "story" we have all been thru shit and I just hope others feel MGK's music has been as helpful as it has been for me. So a BIG shout to MGK and his amazing crew! "It always rains before the rainbow" "I’m walking through the fire because there is no way around"
Thank you so much..I'm definitely expecting any type of response (although is would be hella sic) but I get their are RAGE fans all over the world. anyways I'm done ranting LMAO! Thank you MGK for being such and inspiration and helping me with your authentic music thru my difficult times! <3 Bridget C.

As I have been through my own problems and short comings through life. I continue to turn to the life of being a horrible person. I have been beat down and I have been told my whole life that i shall never grow to be anything more than a POS. Now I am out on ISPI, and found a wonderful women. I thought that I finally put everything behind me, but recently my addiction came back at me. I let my addiction to the needle take control over me and I have almost lost everything to this addiction. My girlfriend believes that your music can help me, but I want to know can you help me too. I will never amount to the greatest that you have become, but I just want to be normal and not be the criminal/ addict that I have been. I want to live a life full of happiness and joy. What do you think I should do to move forward with my life and to leave my old life behind me? Can you help me?

Mgk you inspire me man. if you do ever read this website man theres no doubt about it. i used to write my rhymes and be emarressed of them because i never thought a white guy could rap unless it was emminem. then i stumbled upon you and dude you have changed my life. this is one of my best raps i have written and anyone else reading these please dont steal it i worked hard on it. While I write these raps I fear that instead of hope ill inspire tears. I don’t want to create them I want to eliminate them. Not rappers but people’s fears. But Im the dawn of a new era, so high they see me in the Cierra. I am a creator a inspirator unlike these other rapper who are just haters. I want people to see my raps as a message tell me! Its okay to sin, ill be doing it till the end. No matter who you are, your my friend and if someone comes at you I got you the attacker will have something to contend. I am the dawn of a new era, im the one who said fuck you to Sister Cara. Everyone is a human, straight, trans, bi and gay. To me you all are okay. As long as your nice then I got nothing to say. But try to attack and its my rhymes ill fire back so don’t slack. If you want my spot come take it. But youd better be ready to defend it because to me you not taking it im lending it till I mend it then you gonna surrender it. Ill be here till the end of it and that’s a message I have no fear to send. I came from Baltimore so nothings fake here its all hardcore. You have been rapping since you were four that’s cute I was rapping in the womb. That’s how I got so good my raps will send you to the tomb. But I might spare you if I think its too soon, let you join my crew, train you to rap with the basic metronome tap. But if you try to take me down ill look at you with a frown and roast you alive. Im the one to survive and strive to success while other rappers are talking about their smoke sesh. Their raps are police evidence while mine are straight malevolence and ill be the one pointing and laughing when the judge gives you your sentence. I am the dawn of a new era I am the dawn of a new era Bitch! I have delt with a snitch and I guarantee I gave him more than a stich so don’t be a dumbass bitch because the drama you generate will fuel my hate and make me rich. Om im sorry I didn’t mean to hurt you but you were acting like a fool and trying to use me as a tool so I had to be cruel to teach you a lesson. A lesson that will fuel my progression in my rap session and test the tension but I harness, that compressin depression to fuel the nation and show them my creations. With all of this hating I think its time to show that I’m not fading and I’m only spending more time creating. Im the dawn of a new area and set a new record for climbing like the charts like I climed the cierras. I don’t go 0 to 100. I do something a little faster since im the best rapper and unlike you I got hot chicks man the stuff you got I wouldn’t tap her. But im not like that I don’t slap her and you hurt her then you can be sure the fur will fly and by tonight you will die and nobody will know, im that kind of sly so please don’t try. But this rap isn’t designed to make you cry its designed to inspire to raise the bar higher to inspire the next generation rapper to light the mental fire required to be like me. The dawn of a new era

I had my album released in 2002 in Japan and in 2004 in Florida but I never signed any major deals because they wouldn't sign my partner. They only wanted me. A female rapper who was white/filipina.... I couldn't leave my ppl. I know it probably will never happen but I'd love to feature for free. 50 wanted to sign me BUT it came with stipulations.... I'm nobody today... if you ever need a no namer, I can do that.... you'll be impressed. Give me a chance...

You have helped me through the hardest times.... your music makes me feel alive. You got me through my addiction to opiates if it wasnt for your music i would have relapsed along time ago. My children love you and so do i. I know the chances of you seeing this are not to high.... i just pray i get to meet the one who saved my life. And my children and i are ever so grateful. One of these days if i can get up enough money i want to come to one of your concerts that would be amazing have a blessed day.

Thank You for being humble. Thank You for being able to question yourself in the public eye. We are human, we are mistakes, we are all beautiful. You have shown me that and have reminded me of that, purpose. No matter how hard the journey may seem, if you keep it real, you remain complete.

I can't remember who said it to me. It must have been at least 6 years ago, the first time "don't think. just go" was turned from 4 simple words into my one man army's lifelong battle cry. Looking At my life is like looking a book, it's got too many pages to read all at once.. And it's been separated into chapters. Somehow every single chapter of my life since then started with the same 4 words. Each chapter starts with me looking myself in the eye through the mirror, chanting don't think just go in a quiet whisper that only I can hear.. And then I do something that puts another twist in the story and changes everything. Four years ago I was walking down the hall at my high school and saw the nicest ass I ever seen, I told myself "don't think just go" the girl who that ass was attached to is now the mother of my first child. I could tell you about so many more times that those four words convinced me to do something that changed my whole world. Something else I heard about for the first time about 6 years ago changed my life as well, you. You've never heard my name or seen my face. It's a strange coincidence that you don't even know I'm alive when your the only person who was able to keep me alive and keep me from ending my story before I got a chance to write a better ending for it. I'm not even trying to sound creepy but I've been obsessed with every single song you've put out since the day u put it until now. I've been through some shit that kids my age usually don't. I tried to take my own fathers life to save my mothers life when I was 14. Now, 4 years later, I still feel sick to my stomach everytime I look at his crooked nose that I broke and I can still feel the crunch of his face on my fist when I see how many teeth he's missing because of me. That's the least evil of my list of sins and living with the choices I've made and the things I've done.. Sometimes your music is literally my only escape from this hell. I haven't had much time to stay caught up with ur newer music since my son was born.. But last night my sponsor from narcotic's anonymous, who was the best friend I've ever had, died. I smoked what was left in my I.C.E. Rock stash and put a few double tabs of cid under my tongue and turned on mgk radio on my Google play music app on my phone and fell into a trance. I came back to reality about 45 mins ago, I was sitting on my roof with a pad of paper and a pen and I could here a quiet but soothing beat in my head and I knew it was a song by you but I couldn't put my finger on which one it was.. I looked down at the pad of paper in my hand and wrote down "don't think just go" and as soon as I did, I heard someone deep inside my mind say "don't think. Just go." Then I realized i had my earbuds in and the person who said it was actually you. My stomach dropped and every hair on my body stood straight up. It was like it was some sort of sign that I can't give up on my dreams. I started writing down the first rhyme I've written in almost a year. Within 10 mins I had written the deepest verse I've ever written. Every single word I typed in this message I would swear over my son's life. Read this, and do your very best to try to convince yourself that all of that doesn't mean anything at all, and if you find that you can't convince your self it's nothing..
I'm not going to ask you to think about getting ahold of me, In fact I'm gonna ask that you Don't Think. Just go.

But I do know that my only inspiration was you. Its more than just listening. Your music can heal a soul. I've never been so low in my life The only thing that picks me up is you. Its more than music. Its life. And if anyone's ever been there you'll understand. I see you have a concert coming up in May on the 20th in Columbus. Well I just so happened to be from Ohio too. So where else would be a better place to meet then home right?

I've been a fan silent for so long. Although I do promote your music quite often and at least 5,000 plays of 'See My Tears' were because of me. Its one that I relate to, I believe the most. I really want to do a remix on it, female version, but I really want to hear you say "Yes! Do it!"!

Your music has meaning that cannot be compromised or discarded. It has soul that NO other artist has tried to match. It brings people to life. Your music lifts these barriers, not only in music; but with your fans it lifts their barriers of uncertainty, hurt, and gives them a whole new diverse mentality of what could be or what will be. You open up young and old minds and give a sense of kindred spirit that is irreplaceable. I salute you Mr. Colson A.K.A Machine Gun Kelly. I hope one day I am able to meet you and tell you these words in person. I know you understand that you affect a lot of hearts and minds. But I'm not sure you understand the depth of which your inspiration goes.

Sincerely,
A Broken Singer From NC

Just wanted to say thank you for you inspiring rap music. I am just now getting hip to your music in 2016. I was sick and tired of this new rap game.
We have totally different backrounds. You from NE Ohio I am from SE Ohio. Car wreck, drugs, hitting rock bottom are all in my story. Now I help talk to people every week in rehab in central Ohio. Giving back is the only way to keep what I have now.
Just wanted you to know that your music gets me pumped about keeping my goals and my life blueprint has changed but for the better.
Hope this gets to you, but if not it was cool to write how I feel.

I need help. I'm 14 and you have saved my life. I know you have said you don't risk talking to fans but I need you too. I know you are an actual human not just a figure. I need you to trust me and call me 1 time that is it I'm sorry if I'm sounding demanding or annoying but I'd really love 1 chance to talk to you. I'm from Ohio. And your music is the best of the best. I've learned to play swing life away. (Your version) on the guitar. I love your music. Thank you.

I love this album, if words could explain.. I struggle with addiction everyday. And I can't tell you how many times your music has gotten me out of bed in the morning. I would love to show a man like you, a girl like me. Haha I believe in fate, and I know we're gonna be known to on another here soon. I'm 24 next month, I'm from Spokane, Wa. You won't regret it..

I first heard your music about 2 years ago, my friend introduced me to it. The first song I heard was Wild Boy, I think. Well, I liked it and I continued listening to your music. It helped me through a lot. My dad abused my mom. They were both on drugs. My mom went to jail for corruption of a minor last summer, and my dad is currently in jail for drug issues. I couldn't care less about my father though, for the simple reason that he doesn't care about me either. I lost both of my grandpas at ages 9 and 10, then my neighbor that i was really close with at age 10. I have lost many pets. My father, in January of last year, moved 120 miles away. I am currently in a long distance relationship that I have been in for the last year and a half. I rarely get to see my boyfriend. I am bisexual, so I get a lot of bullying and teasing for that. I am emo, and I get even more shit for that. I had issues with anorexia and bulimia at 11, because throughout my whole life my father has proved to me i was worthless. I have struggled with depression since I was 9, social anxiety since I was ten, and borderline personality disorder since this year, at 13. For two years I have struggled with self-harm. I've been through counseling, but it didn't work. I was drinking at 12, smoking at 9, and doing drugs of many kinds since I was 11. I no longer do any drugs other than weed, but I still smoke and drink. I have attempted suicide 6 times, but last time your song came on my tablet... Swing Life Away. I put down the pills I was holding and I put the blade back in the drawer, and I listened to the song. REALLY listened to it. You saved me... Shortly after that I came to see you in concert at Rock On The Range (P.S. I hope you get to be on the big stage next year) and you played Swing Life Away. My friend threw you a lighter. Anyways, I know my story isn't the worst. But thank you, because you helped me.

Hi,

My name is Camille Dorval I'm almost 19 and I live in Belgium in Europe. I send you this message in order to ask your help.( I'm sorry if my english is not very good for you). I need you to help me to go back with my ex boyfriend Jérémy... I'm explaining myself... We falled in love in 21th December 2012. I was 15 and he was 18. We have been together for 3 years. That was perfect... when people told me « How called you him ? Boyfriend ? Bae ? » I said « He is my futur husband and the father of my futur children. » So, our relationship knew ups and downs like every long relationship. I lost him this December... I did many things to save us. But maybe I wasn't strong enough... He was my true Hero. I wrote letters, gave old pictures of us... For a moment he was in a relationship with an other girl... It almost killed me. I know he didn't love her...not like me. He will never love someone as he loved me. And it's the same for me. Because of that, I need your help. To be with my only one again cause we deserve it. We can do it I know that. We just need the help of someone to turn on the fire again. We are one of your biggest fans and for tell you everything, he looks like you, really. Everybody told him ! Your twins haha. For what I need your help... I would like to make a surprise for him so as to try again, to fight again as I know we worth it. I know it's stupid to believe that you will answer and help me to do that but if I'm not trying I will always regret to never do something for us. You know he was the man who I wanted to wake up every morning with, rely on, travelling, be amazing... I want his happiness but I know he will be more happier with me... I'm so sad, desesperate, stupid... But it's love, love is to be stupid but don't care about it. But if I could made a wish I wish I had him for the rest of my life. Cause be without him it's like life with no air... I could tell you so many thing about us, our story... but It will last to long and I don't want to waste your time. I want to make a surprise in which I need your help. I think i'm going to tell him or his mother to go where we met the first time. In the parc... You know this day 21th December 2012 it was the « end of the world » but it's there that my world began. And I will arrive in front of him. I will tell him « Look at your phone, I have send you something to watch. » And I could be a video of you. Or maybe just a text as I supposs that you are so bussy... If you could make a video a short video in which you convainc him, tell him a story of love, I don't know but something to help us. It's like your song Swing Life Away where you was with the girl of your childish, your only one true love. And you went back with her at the end... Or the song Her song.. woaw. It's hard to tell a story about our love to a stranger and more to a american rappeur... I just want to you speak with your heart like if it was your cuty daughter would ask that to an other rappeur. If it was your daughter what would you tell to his lover in order to help her... I need that « soon » as I want to do that after my diploma the 21th June. I can do something for you in return like post the video on facebook. Please... Your are my only and last chance.
I hope you will receive it, read it and answer me even if it's to say no. But please... as someone very important to me told me when I was a child « If something like this happened to you, you must to not let it go ».
I can't let him go, i wanna fight for us.
Please, Machine Gun Kelly... Make my dream come true... With a little more love. Have a nice day and thanks you so so much.
( I send you a pic of Jeremy too ! Your twin! And pics of us)

Bye, one of your fan. Camille Dorval

Hi, let me start out with saying I respect your hustle MGK. You have made moves that have helped people cope and understand what life is and I respect that. Your a good man. Hence why I'm reaching out to you. I have an idea, and I would love to somehow talk to you and share my thoughts with you. Me and you can relate in many ways. I also write music I just haven't been able to do anything with it due to the fact I work to survive and take care of my five year old son and I'm only 22. I would love the opportunity to talk to you. If you can consider giving me a chance to share my idea's with you I would appreciate it so much. My phone number is 720-249-6344. I hope this isn't blown off because I'm not asking for anything from you, I just want some advice on what I'm thinking and trying to for myself and the world we live in out here. Have a good one. Stay up

I wrote a letter for you and I have not been able to make it out yet my gramal thinks that you are not age appropriate for me. But even though she thinks that I will always LOVE your music because I bet you write every note and evey lyric from the bottom of your heart! I just want to tell you that you changed my life! And my mom's too!!!

MGK, you are my favorite singer of all times. You inspired me so much. I like to think I'm your number 1 fan. I'm trying to do work to get money for an outfit of mgk merchandise. I have my hair cut like yours. I would like to be just like you when I grow up. I'm only 13 and have a ways to go. I try coming up with lyrics to become a Hip hop artist. I want to have everything u have when I grow up. Your # 1 fan, Taylor James Terry.

Dude, your music gets me thru damn near suicidal moments.. I really appreciate what you do. I'm sure I'm not the only one. I'm from Atlanta but I feel the way do about my city unfortunately I don't have a voice big enough to make a difference here.. maybe one day I'll see the world thru your shoes.

MGK your the only person in this world that picked me up when i was 16 homeless living in the streets. Doing drugs not caring about school. Wanting to die and not be around anymore. And ever since i started listening to your music it has helped me go from rock bottom to the middle. If it wasnt for you i wouldnt of made it this far. And being a part of Est is the best decision i ever made.
