Tuesday March 20th I was fortunate enough to attend the Inked Magazine event for Machine Gun Kelly at the Hiro Ballroom. MGK also released his first album "Half Naked and Almost Famous," that day. He took to the stage with surprise performances by Travis Porter and French Montana with sounds provided by DJ Prostyles.
It was a great night surrounded by great people in the balcony VIP section. Thanks so much to Toasty, Andrew, and EvRyan.

I recently got into MGK (Machine Gun Kelly). I had been hearing about him for a while but I didn't pay much mind to him. While flicking through channels a while back I went to MTV Hits and his video "Wild Boy" featuring Wacka Flocka was on. I instantly loved the song off the energy he gave in the video. His look, the wildness and freedom in the video caught my attention; plus the song was pretty good.
Like I do any artist I gave him a try and researched him and his music. Various interviews, blog posts, and his music sold me. I truly enjoy his music and his mentality. Even his tweets are hilarious, he says things I would say.
In the interview below, conducted February 3rd 2012, I feel like they didn't give him fair respect off of one factor, how do you interview someone and NOT research them? How do you not know the work artists that you are interviewing? Rosenberg compares MGK to Yelawolf and MGK comments how his music sounds nothing like Yelawolf which is correct. The two artists have nothing in common lyrically, from the way they rap to what they rap about. I believe it is unfair that just because they are both white that they get automatically compared.
Its 2012, Eminem is not the only white rapper and rap is definitely not about skin color, it is about potential and message. ABout being a voice people can relate to and/or enjoy. I agree with the statements MGK makes in this interview, and I agree with Rosenberg when he says that MGK is young and that his time of glory is coming. But if you truly gave MGK even a little background check you would applaud the accomplishments he has made at his young age and the vasts following he has.
Shout out to MGK for being a 1990 baby! This generation is not like the others. We are more motivated and more determine than previous years. This era is all new and changed, music is not the same, style, art, fashion is not the same. We are introducing the new wave for future generations to build on and branch a new.

Last night I went to see "Red Tails" (GREAT movie, it's a must see). One of the previews was for the movie "Battleship," which looks interesting. What I was highly interested in was Rihanna who has a part in the movie. I am beyond hype to see her in a movie, hopefully she got good air time.
The movie is starring Liam Neeson, Rihanna, Alexnder Skarsgard, and Billy Slaughter. Battleship is a science fiction naval war film based on the game of the same name. It is a story of an international Navy fleet engaged in a very dynamic and intense battle against an alien race. This is Rihanna's acting debut.
Liam Neeson and Rihanna in a movie? I'm sold. Battleship 2012 movie hits theaters on May 18th 2012. If you haven't seen the preview for "Battleship" I've posted both trailer (number 2 then number 1).

This song popped up in my head randomly. I remember being real young when this song came out, I knew all the words but had no clue what they were talking about. This new wave of artists and blending of genres is great, but the 90s had some classics, and you have to appreciate classics.
