Machine Gun Kelly Describes Collaborations On "Lace Up"

Machine Gun Kelly provides insight into some of the featured artists on his album.

As Machine Gun Kelly's Lace Up approaches its release date, the Ohio native reflects on the album's features.

"I actually got one of the greatest metal bands to be featured on it, Avenged Sevenfold," said MGK of his album in an interview with MTV's "RapFix Live." "It's definitely an eargasm if you're into cross genre." The track which features Avenged lead vocalist M. Shadows and lead guitarist Synyster Gates, is titled"Save Me," and serves as the album's intro.

Bun B, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Jon, Young Jeezy, Twista, Tech N9ne, Dubo, and DMX also make appearances on the project. 

In particular, Kelly addressed Twista and Tech N9ne's contributions on the song "Edge of Destruction."

"We weren't all in the studio, which was a bummer. I wish me, Tech and Twist could've been in there together," lamented Kelly.

"Twista really fed off of Tech N9ne's verse though," he added. "That was a big moment."

"I really think I brought the best out of the artists, and they really blessed me by not being on no money thing, or no politics. It's all out of love for the movement and what they believed in," said Kelly. "And I really think the album will open up the critics' eyes a lot."

    his the same type of emcee as dmx its for partys , cant see him makin conscious songs

    • itsthetruth

      Lol, another person who thinks X only made songs like 'Party Up'. Go do yourself a favor and listen to X's first 2 albums and tell me it's party music or it's not "conscious" stuff on there. Maybe not conscious like Talib Kweli or Mos Def or whatever you listen to, but it's real music either way. Let Me Fly, The Convo, I Can Feel It, Look Thru My Eyes, Damien, Slippin, Dogs For Life, Coming From...Dude spit straight poetry and painted dark pictures like no other, and also had prayers on every album. Then X started going more mainstream on the third album, but those first 2 albums are classics.

    In the Lace Up documentary MGK acted totally in awe of X, but at the same time X seemed impressed by him as well.
