(Video) MGK Talks Macklemore & Race In Rap At LAX

ifwt_MGK x Slim x LAX

Machine Gun Kelly was in LAX yesterday to catch a flight to the Sundance Film Festival (where he performed last night alongside Erykah Badu and Nas to celebrate the premiere of their new film, The Land.) While walking through the airport, the “Till I Die” rapper was followed by a photog who apparently was a huge fan – but made the mistake of calling him “one of the top 5 white rappers.”

“I mean I’m not just a great WHITE rapper,” an annoyed MGK responded. “I’m a great rapper, motherf*cker.”

As the photog tried to backpedal, MGK elaborated on the issue of race in rap, and took a slight dig at Macklemore’s new song when he said, “Race is not an issue. Race is an issue for people like Macklemore and sh*t.” Welp!

ifwt_joe-budden-game

This past Friday, Machine Gun Kelly, Joe Budden and The Game all released new albums, although Game’s was basically just a part 2 of his release the week prior. Game did a double disc for his new album The Documentary 2, but instead broke the release up into 2 weeks, and dubbed this one The Documentary 2.5. In the coming weeks, he will release a hard copy with both discs in the packaging.

Early forecasts are now in, and it looks like Game and MGK are neck-in-neck for the top spot on the Hip-Hop chart on Billboard. (Demi Lovato and Pentatonix are going to take the lead on the overall chart.) Both General Admission and The Documentary 2.5 are on pace to sell around 45-50k units, while Joe’s All Love Lost is looking to move around 15-18k.
