Machine Gun Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, has provided further explanation regarding his decision to cover up a significant portion of his chest and arm tattoos with a striking blackout tattoo, which has quickly become a topic of discussion online.

In his latest piano rap ballad titled “Don’t Let Me Go,” released on Wednesday, MGK delves into his emotions surrounding his recent tattoo transformation.
