Recently, Reading & Leeds performer Machine Gun Kelly may have been in the studio with YUNGBLUD and blink-182's Travis Barker. In a series of Instagram stories that you can see here, the three look like they could potentially be working on new music.
That said, because YUNGBLUD and Machine Gun Kelly are playing on the same days, we think a legendary live collab at Reading & Leeds could be in the cards.
Additionally, about two months ago, Machine Gun Kelly shared that he had scrapped an entire album. Not wanting to leave fans completely empty-handed, the rapper promised the new material would be coming soon. On top of his recent Instagram stories, MGK also teased some new beats last month.
