MACHINE GUN KELLY

Nicknamed MGK by his fans, the MC released his first mixtape Stamp of Approval in 2006 and built a local fan base performing at Cleveland venues like Hi-Fi. Nicknamed MGK by his fans, the MC released his first mixtape Stamp of Approval in 2006 and built a local fan base performing at Cleveland venues like Hi-Fi. But it was a trip to New York’s famed Apollo Theater in 2009 that really gave him his start. The energetic performer became the first rapper in history to win the Apollo’s talent show.

But just as his star began to rise, MGK suffered a new setback. A polyp developed on his vocal chord which kept him offstage and out of the studio for six months. Without health insurance for surgery, MGK worked off the polyp by himself with tireless vocal exercises.

But the sun shone again with the 2010 release of MGK’s Lace Up mixtape. The project not only earned the local favorite more fans baring their own “Lace Up” tattoos but a national audience.

In 2011, the Ohio rapper secured a label deal with Diddy’s Bad Boy Records/ Interscope Records as well as a marketing partnership to score a spot for HTC’s Rezound Beats By Dre phone. Machine Gun MGK’s “Invincible” track plays during the electronics commercial, the release of which coincided with the song’s sale on iTunes.

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.

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. Lace up.
