Machine Gun Kelly has entered the world of pop punk over the past couple of years, and for many, his foray into the genre has been a mixed one. Fans of the genre believe that MGK is a poser who simply benefits from the genre through his failings in hip-hop. Others are big fans of what MGK is doing right now, and they hope he collaborates with big names.

For example, over the past few years, Playboi Carti has also embraced emo and punk aesthetics, however, Carti has translated them into hip-hop instead of completely switching genres. That being said, fans are still curious if he could cross over and work with someone like MGK.
