- Artist: Machine Gun Kelly
- Track: Raise The Flag
- Producer: Slim Gudz
- Album: Black Flag
Machine Gun Kelly has been a great ball of rebellious energy since entering into the rap realm. While the wild-boy has a reputation for unorthodox behavior, the rapid-spitting rapper shows off another side on Raise the Flag. The setting seems to be some post-apocalyptic world, MGK is the leader of the youth rebellion and carries the weight of change, his flag representing dreams and ideals that his oppressor wants to bury. The JR Saint-directed visual is a mature one, showing that the punk-rock mentality might be blossoming into something more enlighten. Time has been flying, it's been a two years since his debut album Lace Up and a year since the release of the Black Flag mixtape, hopefully a long-overdue sophomore release is on the horizon.
