Machine Gun Kelly Says Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Wrote A “Terrible” Unused Verse For “Tickets To My Downfall”, Taylor Shares Emails That Dispute Those Claims

As previously reported, Machine Gun Kelly recently made headlines after blasting Slipknot by calling them “old weird dudes with masks” onstage at the 2021 Riot Fest in Chicago, IL. Now, the rapper turned rocker has apparently decided to keep the feud going on social media.

Machine Gun Kelly tweeted the following:

“very odd that when an artist talks shit, and i respond, i’m the bad guy.”

He later added:

“Corey [Taylor] did a verse for a song on tickets to my downfall album, it was fucking terrible, so i didn’t use it. he got mad about it, and talked shit to a magazine about the same album he was almost on. yalls stories are all off. just admit he’s bitter.”

Taylor then responded with the following:

“I don’t like people airing private shit like a child. So this is all I’ll say: I didn’t do the track because I don’t like when people try to ‘write’ for me. I said NO to THEM. So without further ado…. #receipts This is all I’m going to say about it.”

The receipts Taylor mentioned are emails between him and Machine Gun Kelly’s “Tickets To My Downfall” collaborator Travis Barker (Blink-182), which you can find below:

Machine Gun Kelly has since fired back as well:

“basically, your verse was really bad. respectfully, i was just telling you to rewrite it because it was really bad. respectfully. 😕 but let’s do a britney spears song cover together 🤘🏼”
