JAMN 94.5 presents Machine Gun Kelly
February 28, 2013
There's nothing like someone who has lived your story and Ohio's MC MGK resilience has become a beacon of hope for thousands of kids across America. Penning rhymes about everything from addiction to family issues, Machine Gun Kelly is a symbol of relentless perseverance to his fans and the MC is about to begin the next chapter of his already successful career.
The sun shone with the 2010 release of MGK's Lace Up mixtape and in 2011, the Ohio rapper secured a label deal with Diddy's Bad Boy Records/ Interscope Records. In October, the Rage Pack mixtape, inspired by his energy on stage and a love for his fans, hit the web. A video for MGK's single "Wild Boy" featuring Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame and produced by GB Hitz followed, leading MGK to win MTV's Hottest Breakthrough MC for 2011.
Gearing up for his mainstream spotlight, MGK is currently prepping his official EP via Bad Boy/ Interscope entitled Lace Up. Slated to hit shelves in March, MGK will take his new music across the United States during the "90 Cities in 99 Days" tour with Midwest MC Tech N9ne also beginning that month. Already acknowledged by cultural gatekeepers like The New York Times, MTV, The FADER and Nah Right, MGK is ready to devour the next phase of his career.
