Folks, we need to talk about Machine Gun Kelly.
He’s been writing mad raps in his lockdown in which he’s been in for the last 19 days. And the freshest of all is the new one he has dropped ‘In These Walls’. It samples from PVRIS’s ‘My House’ and creates something so hauntingly beautiful. “You said I never wrote a song for you/ so I hope this one is haunting you,” he starts and WE ARE HOOKED!
He’s been going at it quite hard in his IGTV videos. He last covered Paramore’s ‘Misery Business’ with Travis Barker, followed by ‘What’s Poppin’ on which he rapped freestyle with Jack Harlow and then a collaboration with Yungblud where they performed Oasis’s ‘Champagne Supernova’.
In the song that’s absolutely digging its claws in our minds — ‘In These Walls’, he goes: “I think we’re caught up in a power trip / She my Kate Moss, I’m her Johnny Depp / Life of a fast life in the fast lane / Fights in the cab, nights drinking champagne / Ice make it last, ice for the back pain / With the knife on the dash, pipe in the ashtray.”
MGK not out here to create quality content; he creating cosmic iterations folks.
