On the heels of Wiz Khalifa and Soulja Boy’s remixes, Machine Gun Kelly unleashes his own freestyle to Drake’s new single “Started From the Bottom.” The Bad Boy puts on for his city of Cleveland and reflects on his grind to the top.
“They say Illuminati is the cause/ But maybe every one of ya’ll is lazy and I worked hard,” he quips.
MGK is working on a new mixtape, due later this month. “Hope y’all are digging the new energy for 2013. I’m hungry. I want that top spot,” he tweeted.
How does MGK’s remix stack up to Wiz and Soulja Boy’s? Take a listen and weigh in.
After putting in the hard work, Machine Gun Kelly enjoys his success in the video for “La La La (The Floating Song),” a bonus cut off his debut Lace Up.
The “Wild Boy” rides an ATV, smokes on the beach, and parties on a yacht with his EST crew in the laid-back visuals, which were shot during his holiday vacation in Saint Martin. Security tried to stop him from filming, but he wasn’t about to put down the camera.
Next up, MGK will release his new single “Peso” featuring Meek Mill and Pusha T, followed by his mixtape in February.
2013 marks the return of Machine Gun Kelly. While he released his debut album Lace Up in October, it was missing the fire that made him want to rap in the first place.
“MGK is just professional, bland—there’s no soul or substance in him,” the Cleveland MC told Rap-Up TV on set of French Montana’s “Ocho Cinco” video. “As a personality, Machine Gun Kelly is back. That’s that motherfu**er that doesn’t give two fu**s of a f**k about anything or anyone.”
You can expect to hear Machine Gun Kelly on his upcoming mixtape, due next month. The first single will be “Peso” featuring Meek Mill and Pusha T.
“It’s a joint that makes you want to get up and go to work,” he said of the track, which samples Aloe Blacc’s “I Need a Dollar.”
Machine Gun Kelly was recently in the studio with his pal Wiz Khalifa. While he originally went there to smoke, they ended up recording for the mixtape.
“I felt like I nearly got dropped from my label and felt this hunger that I hadn’t had in a long time, and I just put it in words,” explained MGK, who is still signed to Bad Boy/Interscope. “I felt like I wasn’t a problem in the game yet, and now I feel like, ‘God damn.’ I’m so fu*king stoked on this tape.”
Cleveland gets “Ratchet” on Machine Gun Kelly’s new anthem produced by JP Did This 1. After showing off his “Wild” side, the Bad Boy rapper turns up with his EST affiliates Ray Jr., Dub-O, Tezo, and Pooh Gutta, who trade verses about a “ratchet bitch.”
“Never seen a ratchet get wifed, but I done seen these wifes get ratchet,” raps MGK.
The song serves as the first single off E-V’s upcoming mixtape Bitch I’m From Cleveland 3.
Machine Gun Kelly laces up his fans for Christmas with Part 2 of his documentary. The “Wild Boy” takes cameras along as he returns home to Cleveland. In the 12-minute episode, he gets love from a police officer, visits his favorite tattoo parlor, and gives his EST crew member a Louis Vuitton belt for his birthday. He also documents his relapse after four months of being sober and meets the fans whose lives he’s affected.
Nothing says Christmas like Machine Gun Kelly. If you got a kick out of DMX’s cover of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” then you won’t want to miss MGK’s take on “The 12 Days of Christmas,” which he performed as part of MTV’s “12 Holidaze” series.
Sitting in front of a cardboard fireplace with stockings, the “Wild Boy” strums along to the Christmas classic on his guitar. He even flips the lyrics, singing about getting a purple tree from Snoop Dogg, four naked strippers from his girlfriend, and five chicken wings from a fat guy.
Machine Gun Kelly is a smooth criminal in the video for “Hold On (Shut Up),” a cut off the deluxe edition of his debut Lace Up. The Cleveland rapper shows his struggle before the fame in the cinematic clip, which co-stars Young Jeezy.
He hatches a plot to distract his victims, while he breaks into their car and steals a bag of money, sharing the wealth with his EST gang. He doesn’t leave any evidence behind, smashing the windows before setting the vehicle on fire.
