Bad Boy Records rapper Machine Gun Kelly has finally penciled in a release date for his long-awaited Lace Up solo debut.
If all goes accordingly, MGK's Bad Boy Records LP will land in store shelves this October.
""Lace Up" the Album officially releases in stores October 9th!!! Pre-order at http://www.mgklaceup.com !! LTFU," he tweeted August 7th.
"This is the first time I've ever seen Lace Up trending. I feel like a proud dad or something http://instagr.am/p/ODMgcjCtXo/"
"Aliens rage heavy to Wild Boy. I'm witnessing it right now. Space nuts!!!" (Machine Gun Kelly's Twitter)
This week, MGK's new Young Jeezy-featured "Hold On (Shut Up)" collaboration premiered online.
Machine Gun Kelly and Young Jeezy are throwing up the stop signs on their new collaborative track "Hold On (Shut Up)." "I don't gang bang hoe/I just gangbang these h*es/ And I keep like 8 j's rolled/them I face them after my shows," raps Machine Gun Kelly. Young Jeezy follows up spitting, "All bark no bite/all rap, no white/she want her friends to get with my friends so we can be friends, well alright/Machine gun we got one/machine gun I got one." (Global Grind)
The October release date will give Kells time to record a dream collaboration alongside rap star Eminem.
Now that he's collaborated with DMX ("I Don't Dance"), he hopes to one day work with another one of his idols, Eminem, who he calls the best rapper alive. "That would be a fan favorite if an MGK-Eminem song ever went down," says the "Invincible" rapper. "If those two [DMX and Eminem] could be knocked off, I won't have any more on my bucket list really." (Rap-Up)
Last summer, MGK talked to SOHH about inking a record deal with Bad Boy.
"I think the state of mind right now is I don't really feel anything until I put music out," MGK told SOHH. "Once I see my first bullet point, God-willing, on the Billboard charts, then I'm going to freak out. But until then, it's the new generation of Bad Boy." (SOHH)
