MGK, the rising rapid-fire rapper from Cleveland who became the first MC in history to win the famed Amateur Night competition at the Apollo, has been signed to Bad Boy/Interscope Records. Information about his forthcoming debut album, Lace Up, will be announced in the near future. MGK has continuously impressed with his exciting and exhilarating live performances at SXSW and Bamboozled, as well as on the Warped and Lil Wayne tours, just to name a few. Far more than a rapper, he is quickly becoming the voice of a new generation as he attracts new fans with each show.
“The moment we started the EST 19XX movement during the recording of the Lace Up mixtape, I made a pledge to my fans to protect our brand and become the honest voice of our generation,” said MGK. “We represent the underdogs, the outcast, the uncool. We are a true cult with a loud voice.”
