9. Rage Pack, 2011

Rage Pack - Album by Machine Gun Kelly | Spotify

“Absolute classic MGK stuff. No doubt this has to be my favorite album of him to date. Unlike his previous works, this album is centered around a more matured MGK. Great production and songwriting, with MGK occasionally trying new things.
Tracks like ‘little more’ ‘alpha omega’ carry a strong message. The live performances of these songs were great too. No doubt he enjoyed massive success with this album.”

8. Lace Up (The Mixtape), 2010

Machine Gun Kelly - Lace Up (Mixtape) Lyrics and Tracklist | Genius

“I actually enjoyed this mixtape more than his studio effort. He is from Cleveland, so I do have some bias towards it. But damn! The song itself (Cleveland) is such an anthem!”

“Machine Gun Kelly puts together a collection of stories that make you wonder about his father and connect to him on an entire other level. A Little More is an amazing song that pulls at the heart strings in the middle of some incredible work by this Cleveland artist.”

“I don’t see why this album is made out to be so bad. The beats are nice, the songs are short, but nice, autotune’s used okay, it’s just pretty good. Criminally underrated.”

4. Bloom, 2017

3. Hotel Diablo, 2019

Machine Gun Kelly - Hotel Diablo - CD - 2019 - US - Original | HHV

“The production here is pretty great for the most part as well, with buzzing bass and tickling Trap drums making for that signature, satisfying sound that’s become a mainstay in popular Hip-Hop these days taking center stage.”

2. Tickets To My Downfall, 2020

Tickets To My Downfall (SOLD OUT Deluxe) - Album by Machine Gun Kelly |  Spotify

“This album brought rock back into the mainstream a bit, but this doesn’t mean it’ll remain in the mainstream for long. I shouldn’t be surprised MGK would make a pop rock/pop punk album, because he has mentioned bands like blink-182 as big influences.”

1. Lace Up, 2012

Machine Gun Kelly - Lace Up Lyrics and Tracklist | Genius

“Machine Gun Kelly is the BEST hip-hop artist to emerge on the scene from 2010 to present day & this album is PROOF of that. From his rough beginnings to being the 1st hip-hop artist to win Showtime at the Apollo to earning his 1st recording contract, MGK brings nothing short of what is expected out of him on this album. Good/Strong music as well as really good quality LYRICS; Lace Up is easily a honorable mention for top hip-hop albums of 2012. LACE UP!!!”
