Machine Gun Kelly revealed to fans on Sunday (July 5) that he was gearing up to celebrate the one-year anniversary of his album, Hotel Diablo when he got the upsetting news.

“That album was everything i wanted to say and i know it’s close to my fans…‬” Machine Gun Kelly started to explain. “but my father took his last breath this morning, and ive never felt a pain this deep in my life.”

He then told his fans that although he’d love to celebrate the anniversary of the album, he needs time to mourn the loss of his father and that he is setting his phone down.

“I’m setting my phone down. Love you. Thank you guys for everything,” MGK ended his Instagram caption of the heartbreaking news.

According to the New York Times, MGK also known as Richard Colson Baker said that the rapper recently settled his difference with his father, who reportedly became hospitalized in Denver, CO with an illness that wasn’t related to the Novel coronavirus pandemic.

Kelly went on to explain how his father now enjoys his music and loves that he is finally playing a guitar on his songs.

“He’s so stoked that I’m playing guitar now. He called me the other day and told me that he’s really starting to enjoy my music,” MGK continues to tell the New York Times. “And he’s super proud of me.”

The rapper didn’t share his dad’s official cause of death or reason for hospitalization.

Sending out love and prayers to Machine Gun Kelly and his family at this time.

Kelly recently release his single “Bloody Valentine” from his forthcoming new pop-punk album, Tickets To My Downfall, which is slated for release later this summer.
