Machine Gun Kelly Announces "Black Flag" Mixtape, Reveals Cover Art

Machine Gun Kelly preps the release of a new mixtape.

Machine Gun Kelly has announced his upcoming mixtape Black Flag, which is currently without a release date.

The project, which serves as his first body of work since last year's debut Lace Up, has already spawned the song "Champions" featuring Diddy that touts the same instrumental from The Diplomats' "We Are the Champions." He also released the DIY video for the track and will include the cut "Peso" featuring Pusha T and Meek Mill on the tape.

The Bad Boy rapper previously spoke with about the project, stating that he feels reinvigorated to record. “I felt like I nearly got dropped from my label and felt this hunger that I hadn’t had in a long time, and I just put it in words,” he said. “I felt like I wasn’t a problem in the game yet, and now I feel like, ‘God damn.’ I’m so fucking stoked on this tape.”

MGK previously released Lace Up in October 2012. The LP bowed at No. 4 with 57,000 copies sold.

      i dont like ross or wayne but they are in fact on top of of the rap game right now. mgk is no where near them

    • Pat

      wrong i gave the album a listen and the only songs i can listen to on it are "what i do" and "edge of destruction". and thats only for the features too. I usually just skip to bun's verse on what i do and stop the song when "kells" comes up on edge of destruction

    • Anonymous

      You don't know a damn thing about kells music it's easy to see that you never listened MGK but your here to talk trash with out any research.Kells Music is ten times better than anything ever put out by drake,gay Wayne, or 90% of the industry.

    • Pat

      lmao at you thinking mgk is hip hops savior. Mgk is on "wayne, drake, ross" level if not worse. People like him for his "fuck everything" attitude and ignore his weak music

    • ZOMBIE

      and who do you think is? wayne? drake? ross? fuckin faggot. MGK/ Hopsin/ Tyler,the creator/ A$AP Rocky/ Kendrick Lamar are the top 5 out right now (not in that order tho)

    • Anonymous

      LOL @ MGK being on top righ tnow

  • yeaaahh

    I can't believe people are still sleeping on this guy. His flow is raw, he's passionate, and he actually cares about his fans. I think releasing "Wild Boy" as his first single kind of hurt him because most people assumed he was just another club/party rapper.

    so many lames below in the comments.yall look butthurt that dude is doin his thing.

  • timmm

    everyone needs to calm down about the whole punk band thing....I've seen some interviews where he drops some old school punk band names - exploited, nofx, casualties, he surprisingly knows has some knowledge on the punk front unlike most rappers who try to be punk.

    • DrebinSlevin

      The most "punk" thing he's done was set a a flash mob at a mall and had people wear stupid costumes. He may know his punk music but he clearly doesn't know what a lot of those bands stood for. But you can tell me how "punk" he is while he spends his career getting his shows in Microsoft Stores shut down by mall cops for standing on a table.

  • anon

    "what a rebel" said no one about machine gun kelly ever. (you know, the guy signed to PUFFY's label?) lol. how pathetic is it that he's using Black Flag's band name for his piece of garbage mixtape. talentless hack. i hope the money the label threw at him, hoping for a macklemore sized white boy explosion, dries up and he goes back to sucking dick on a street corner instead of sucking dick on mixtapes.

    • bill

      if you for one minute think macklemore is better then mgk then you got shit stuffed in your ears. macklemore is just an industry pawn youre gonna listen to while hes "hot" then forget about when people start hating on him. mgk is gonna be around for years with or without a label. his music is inspiring and tells a story. while most of the people you probably listen to just talk about "swag" and how much money they got and the drugs they allegedy do. fuck everybody who thinks that mgk is a flop, and fuck this anon guy for his senseless opinion. and if you think he is talentless then you dont fuckin know music. man you probably just pissed off cuz hes doing better then you ever will.

  • kayaman

    Using punk band names as the title of your if rappers using punk fashion wasn't bad enough (Chris Brown wearing a studded painted leather jacket).

  • krondogg

    MGK all gud....but fuck diddy & Badboy....Mud ass niggas !...
