Ya’ll may or may not have noticed, but I’m always checkin for Ester Dean going-ons and I was so exited to see that she had collab’d with Machine Gun Kelly (or MGK) on this Invincible track. The song’s been out for a minute, and since I don’t really follow MGK like that it wasn’t really on my radar. Still, I love me some Ester and I’m curious to see if we have any MGK fans on PITNB. Check out the video inside.
Machine Gun Kelly feat. Ester Dean: Invincible
So, for obvious reasons, people are comparing MGK to Eminem. But lyrically, I don’t really hear it. What I do hear, sometimes, is that Cleveland (or Midwest) influence. MGK is from Shaker Heights, Ohio (like Kid Cudi), which is right next door to Cleveland, and when he does that little rapid-fire flow sometimes, I hear it.
Any MGK fans around? He’s signed to Bad Boy Records right now. Hope that Diddy curse doesn’t start rearing its ugly head anytime soon (shout out to Ma$e, Boys In The Hood, Faith Evans, Cheri Dennis, Young Joc, Carl Thomas, 112, Lil’ Kim, Day 26, The LOX, Shyne, Da Band, Dream, Elephant Man, Danity Kane, Loon, B5, Donnie Klang, etc.)
Watch MGK rep Cleveland/Ohio in the video for Wild Boy (feat. Waka Flocka Flame, with guest appearances from Ohio natives Kat Williams and OMG is that Layzie Bone from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony?!)
