Three years since his debut Lace Up, Machine Gun Kelly is back with his sophomore album, General Admission. As usual, the Cleveland rapper doesn’t rely on features—Kid Rock is the only big name to appear on the 16 tracks, along with lesser-known artists like Victoria Monét, Leroy Sanchez, and Lzzy Hale.
The album features live instrumentation as well as production from J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League and Jim Jonsin. “It’s an era of electronic music. I kind of want to bring back musicianship,” MGK told MTV News. “It’s gonna sound like Cleveland. It’s gonna sound like hunger.”
