MGK Readies Half Naked & Almost Famous EP for March 20 Release
The 2012 XXL Freshman and Bad Boy Recording artist will go live on U-Stream tonight (March 13) at 8 p.m. to discuss the project. The EP will include songs like “Warning Shot,” featuring Cassie and the smash hit “Wild Boy,” featuring Waka Flocka Flame. There’s also, “See My Tears,” “EST 4 Life” and the title track, “Half Naked & Almost Famous.”
The EP will also contain instructions on how fans can acquire DVD footage of the “Wild Boy” and his crew, living their lives and sharing rowdy moments
The release is part of an incredibly busy month for MGK, who was introduced by wrestler and part-time rapper John Cena on WWE Raw on Monday night (March 12) in the MC’s hometown of Cleveland. No MGK doesn’t have any plans on wrestling, but his “Invincible” record has been chosen as the official WWE WrestleMania XXVIII theme song. The track was also tabbed by Verizon Wireless for their HTC Rebound 3G smartphone campaign.
The heavily-inked MC is also set to perform in four different shows this week in Austin, Texas at this year’s installment of the SXSW music festival. That should serve as great practice for the young rager, who will also be heading out with Tech N9ne as part of the record-setting, 2012 Hostile Takeover Tour, which hits 90 cities in 99 days beginning on March 22nd.
During the summer, MGK also has plans to hit the road as part of the Van’s Warped tour. —Mark Lelinwalla
