Machine Gun Kelly MGK – Lace Up viral video

Watch: Machine Gun Kelly’s “Get Laced (Cleveland WINS)” Viral Video

It’s been about a year since I was exposed to Cleveland’s hip-hop firestorm Machine Gun Kelly by producer Erocheadz.

His passionate rapid-fire lyric delivery almost commands you to listen and comprehend, if capable. Since Lebron‘s abandonment of Cleveland, the city is now left relying on the next big thing, the next big voice, and MGK seems to be up for taking on the rebellion.

So if you’re like me, you immediately copped both mixtapes, 100 Words & Running and Lace Up in 2010 and have waited anxiously for what’s next for MGK in 2011.

Will there be an official album this year? A tour? Well yes and yes. Following recent appearances at SXSW, he’s got a lot on his platter so far.

There’s an album in progress and check out the tour dates below to see when he’ll be in your city. While “Get Laced” isn’t exactly a favorite of mine from the Lace Up mixtape, the message is clear.

Probably could have done without the bathroom scene but an altogether decent and amusing next move from an artist I’m looking forward to hearing a lot more from. Enjoy the video for “Get Laced” directly below.
