In case you were wondering, MGK and Slipknot, well at least Corey Taylor, are not exactly friends.
On Sunday, they both headlined at Riot Fest in Chicago, but it was MGK who took a quick jab at Slipknot during his set. He said, quote,
“Hey, you wanna know what I’m really happy that I’m not doing? Being 50 years old wearing [an effing] weird mask on [an effing] stage . . . [Effing crap]. So anyway, what’s everyone’s favorite candy? Reese’s Pieces?”
Without a doubt, this shade is in response to comments made by Corey earlier this year. He said quote, “I hate all new rock for the most part. I [hate] the artists who failed in one genre and decided to go rock . . . and I think he knows who he is.”
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE
Yesterday MGK tweeted:
corey 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.

Corey then tweeted:
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
