Fresh off the release of his long-awaited Bad Boy Records Lace Up debut, rapper Machine Gun Kelly has premiered his new "See My Tears" music video and paid homage to loyal supporters.
In the emotion-driven visual, MGK is shown interacting with handfuls of fans.
Even "Wild Boys" have their moments. Machine Gun Kelly shows a softer side in the video for "See My Tears." The clip is comprised of footage of the Cleveland rapper on the road. He meets a disabled fan, who gets out of his wheelchair and walks on stage, and calls up over 300 of his closest EST members. (Rap-Up)
He unleashed a video link on Twitter and emphasized how close the clip is to him.
"we're dropping the "See My Tears" music video in 10 minutes!!! #laceup," MGK tweeted October 16th.

Recently, Kelly revealed Bad Boy boss Diddy's initial reaction to the LP.
"Honestly, man, Puff had got back from Ibiza three days prior to hearing the album," Kells said when he appeared on "RapFix Live" this past Wednesday. "People where I'm from don't even know what an Ibiza is; they probably think it's like a fur coat." With Diddy coming from the Spanish party island, he was probably in a celebratory state of mind, Kells said, and Lace Up isn't that cheery. "I think when he heard it, his initial reaction was like, 'Damn, why are you so angry?' " Machine Gun Kelly speculated. It took Diddy some time, but after absorbing the LP, which hits stores Tuesday, he began to see where the angst-filled rapper was coming from. "I ended having dinner with him the other day, and he looked at me like, 'Yo, man, I really love the album,' " Kells said. (MTV)
