MGK recently spoke about Macklemore’s success following Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ prominent presense at yesterday’s MTV Video Music Awards (August 25). 

“He played the game,” MGK said in an interview with Hot 97. “He’s a game player. You know what I’m saying? I make my own rules.” 

MGK also commented on his status in Hip Hop when asked about feeling under-appreciated as a White rapper. 

“I don’t even put color on it,” MGK said. “I feel I’m under-appreciated in Hip Hop period. You know what I’m saying? I’m better than Black, White.” 

After speaking about race in Hip Hop, MGK also spoke about Miley Cyrus’ twerking. 

“Come on man,” MGK said. “I’ve seen White girls in the hood twerking like that since I was 14. Let’s not…like, America needs to stop acting so sweet man. This is crazy.” 

In June 2013, MGK spoke with HipHopDX about his status as a rapper and his aspirations for the future of his legacy.

“Ultimately, I want to be the voice of my demographic and this generation,” MGK said. “And I want to do that without selling my soul or having to die to prove my point.”
