I thought this was really cool. Last night, Machine Gun Kelly performed at the famed St. Andrews Hall in Detroit, best known for being immortialized in Eminem's 8 Mile, the hip hop cinematic classic. In this video above, MGK covers the iconic first verse of "Lose Yourself" sitting on the same steps Marshall did growing up with Proof. Then fast forward inside to his performance... where "Shook Ones" dropped and MGK proceeded to rhyme Eminem's entire final battle rap, word for word. It's not the same voice, nor the same flow, but I appreciate and respect MGK's precise and well-intention ode to Eminem on the historic battlegrounds. That's like a young rapper's dream. Awesome.
And the timing is just right... MGK is coming to our town this Sunday and we're giving away a boatload of FREE tickets on our Instagram (@gowherehiphop) tomorrow. Follow us and stay tuned!
