MGK Says Young Jeezy Needs Chicken and Patron in the Studio

When you’re a rap star, you’re entitled to certain indulgences. Some of Young Jeezy’s are chicken and Patron, apparently.

In July, while Jizzle was in town for the Cleveland Summer Jam, he and Machine Gun Kelly joined forces on wax for “Hold On (Shut Up),” which hit the ‘net earlier this month. MGK recently recounted the memorable studio session.

“The funniest part of that shit, is that he’s so famous, he has a rider when he comes in the studio,” the Bad Boy signee told “He requested fuckin’ chicken, fish, Belvedere and Patron—at four in the morning on a Sunday in Cleveland, Ohio.”

At first, it seemed like the Atlanta native’s requests would be too much. “I’m like, ‘Yo, how the fuck are we gonna get this?’” Kells continued. “And a chicken spot opened up just for us. They came back and opened up and cooked the chicken for us, and we just paid ’em extra. They held us down. It was crazy.

“He actually let me go do an after party I was booked for, and he just stayed in the studio and did it. He was like, ‘By the time you come back, it’ll be done.’ I was like, ‘Hell, yeah.’”

MGK’s debut album, Lace Up, is set to hit stores October 9. —Adam Fleischer (@AdamXXL)
