Machine Gun Kelly
It was march of 2010 i was in my brother mikes honda civic with his little brother matt just blaring rap threw the 12 inch subwoofers when matt grabbed the aux cord and put on this kid ive never heard of named Machine Gun Kelly. so me being me i went home and downloaded all of his mixtapes and became obessed and here we are 7 years later and im just as obsessed with him and i have spread the love to numerous friends. The original thing that brought me to him was his flow and his word play. And then i found the lace up mixtape and i heard a song called the return, to this day i still believe that is one of the realest songs ever written in history. He spilled out every negative aspect of his life and all of his struggles over top of a dope beat and just has an amazing flow about it. so then i found his freestyles and his story threw his music. every machine gun kelly song makes me forget about the stress in my life. this guy from 2 hours north of where i live whos only 1 year older than me i have seen his career blow up in front of my eyes. its amazing. and the love he has for his fans is not shown by any other musician, he really loves his fans and thats a big thing for me. with his career blowing up and his dreams coming true he still recognizes where he came from the struggles he faught getting there and he has never took his fans for granted. and threw all of that hes always had a fuck you attitude. his songs take me to a whole new place they make me feel normal when im used to being criticized for being myself. The hope of hip hop is machine gun kelly, his influences go beyond hip hop and r&b he brings a rockstar vibe to hip hop which is what weve needed in this genre, we need mosh pits, people going crazy, good music, and good times, cause after all the very reason we go to shows is to escape the struggles of every day life for a few hours. The Lace Up movement is a very inspiring thing to me, no matter what the world throws at you lace up them shoes and put 10 toes to the pavement and make some shit happen. I will always pass on an mgk song to as many people as i can in hopes it will bring someone as much happiness as it has brought me. Thankyou for being you Machine Gun Kelly and from a fan we appriciate your appriciation. Machine Gun Kelly will always inspire me in a musical way and that carries over in to my personal life as well. He shows anyone can achieve their dreams if they give it all they have.
