Interview: Machine Gun Kelly On Debut Film: “I hope that it kind of strikes a social issue…” [PLUS Details On Sophomore Album!]

Machine Gun Kelly in Beyond The Lights

This Friday, Colson ‘MGK‘ Baker will make his big-screen debut, starring as Kid Culprit in the romantic drama, Beyond The Lights. Since his 2012 Bad Boy/Interscope debut Lace Up and his breakout single “Wild Boy,” Kells has toured the world and shot not only Beyond The Lights, but two more as-of-yet unreleased films as well. He’s also been preparing his sophomore effort, which he says may have its first single out within weeks.

I got the opportunity to attend the screening in MGK’s hometown of Cleveland with him last week, just after hopping on the phone to talk about not only this role but what the Bad Boy rapper has in store for fans in the upcoming months. Check out a few excerpts from the interview below, as well as video of Kells premiering the movie to his friends and family in Cleveland. (P.S. I’ve heard the new single…and let’s just say that sophomore slump is something Kells won’t have to worry about!)

(Video) Machine Gun Kelly Stars As Kid Culprit In “Masterpiece” From New Film ‘Beyond The Lights’

ifwt_MGK x Beyond The Lights

Machine Gun Kelly is making his big screen debut in Beyond The Lights, hitting theaters November 14. He’ll play a bad boy rapper by the name of Kid Culprit, who’s dating burgeoning songstress Noni Jean (played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw,) though she’s internally struggling with all the pressures, politics and shadiness of the music business.

In promotion of the film, they’ve released an official music video from Noni and Kid Culprit, “Masterpiece.” Short clips at the start and end of the video show Noni’s real state of mind, but the actual song is pretty dope! It’d be interesting if this took off the way “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp” from Hustle & Flow did. Check out the video below!

(Photos) Machine Gun Kelly Gives Back To Students In Queens, NY

MGK gives back in Queens

The media always focuses on the crazy antics of most of our favorite artists, so when they do something positive, I always try to highlight it! Machine Gun Kelly’s ‘No Class Tour’ rolled through the Big Apple last night, and after a night of partying in celebration of Kells’ road manager Dre’s birthday and the 2-year anniversary of Kells’ debut album Lace Up, the EST crew made their way out to Queens to hang out with the kids this afternoon.

“Cooked up 3 big trays of chicken and beef sliders, and gave em away to the kids getting out of school today at Burgandy’s Cafe,” MGK wrote on Instagram. “Good food for good kids.” Looks like the kids were truly appreciative! [No word on K’s cooking skills just yet though. Ha!] More pics in the gallery. The ‘No Class Tour‘ continues tomorrow night in Boston.

(Video) LOL! This Is What Happens When Machine Gun Kelly’s Mic Temporarily Gets Lost In The Crowd

Slim & Kells

Machine Gun Kelly’s ‘No Class Tour’ stopped in Philly on Tuesday night, and all was going well until the part when he jumps in the crowd and his hypeman Slim throws him his microphone. The duo do this at basically every show and it usually goes without incident, but things went a little south in the City of Brotherly Love, as the mic got lost for a bit after Slim threw it. Watch what happens below. Gotta love MGK!
