Machine Gun Kelly Signs With Diddy

It was announced today that up-and-coming, Cleveland, Ohio rapper Machine Gun Kelly signed to Diddy’s label, Bad Boy Records, via Interscope.

For the last few years MGK has gained a loyal following releasing several successful mixtapes. Kelly’s latest mixtape Lace Up , a slew of online videos, and show stealing performances at SXSW and Bamboozle really sparked the interests of the rap mogul.

“MGK is a breath of fresh air,” Diddy said via a statement. “He’s not just a star, he’s a movement.”

The two-time Apollo amateur night winner stated, “We decided to partner with Bad Boy/Interscope because they understood our idea and the importance of keeping our integrity. They want to give us their resources to help share our vision with the rest of the world. This is not about mainstream success”

As of press time, no release date has been set for MGK’s debut album. —Mike Hennix
