- Artist: Machine Gun Kelly
- Track: Breaking News
- Producer: JP Did This
- Album: Black Flag
Ladies and gentleman, we interrupt your regularly-scheduled broadcast for some Breaking News: MGK has just liberated a fresh single off his forthcoming mixtape. The follow-up to May's reader-acclaimed Peso, this cut kicks off with a complimentary quote from label boss Sean “Diddy” Combs: “This kid, I think he's a star...” After the hip-hop mogul's said his piece, Kelly hits the ground running, shellacking the competition and outlining his lofty aspirations over JP Did This' icy synths and trap percussion. In a politically-incorrect flight of braggadocio that I'm sure will inspire a few angry letters to Bad Boy/Interscope, the rapper manages to compare himself to 2Pac, Auschwitz and Gandhi in a single breath. Black Flag is scheduled for release at a yet-undetermined date this summer. In the meantime, of course, fans can keep it locked to our pages for the latest singles.
