When he’s not spitting Vodka into a groupie’s mouth (GROSS), MGK keeps busy by working on his Bad Boy/Interscope debut, Lace Up. It drops October 9 (a day before my birthday, in case you’d like to send me a shoebox full of hunnids or some other goodies). In the meantime, take a gander at the tracklist. The thing is guest-heavy, with cameos from DMX, Bun B, Wacka Flocka Flame, Twista, TechN9ne and more.
The title track features Lil Jon and MGK gushed about the recording session in an interview with the other Rap-Up. “I’ve never made a song called ‘Lace Up,’ and I was like, ‘Fuck it, I’ve got to do one,’” he says. “When Lil Jon came into the studio, I was like, ‘You’re not getting on the song [that will be] the anthem of my movement if you don’t truly understand this,’ and we sat there for about an hour and I ran through countless amounts of fan tattoos with ‘Lace Up’ on them, countless amounts of show footage, countless amounts of messages from fans. Dude was like, ‘Yo, this is real’ – towards the point where he was like ‘I’ve gotta get on this song.’ We did it, and it’s the real Lil Jon you want to hear on it.”
MGK also wanted a joint with Eminem, but it looks like he’ll have to wait a little longer for that one.
