Machine Gun Kelly is dominating right now. After winning MTV’s Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award (and thanking his fans with a handmade plaque), he dropped into BET’s 106 and Park to set off their New Years Eve party. Also, he apparently impressed the Warped Tour organizers last year, because he’s one of the earliest confirmed artists at Warped Tour 2012. His absurdly long tour schedule is representative of a man who shows no desire to slow down.
Next up: he just dropped a new video for “The Return,” a crowdsourced project featuring clips of his fans around the world rapping his lyrics. MGK’s dedication to his fans is something special – you can tell he wants to connect with fans, not sell to them – and this is another step toward establishing the family of supporters that hang on his every move. (Another case in point: willing a fan with Cerebral Palsy to walk for the first time ever at one of his shows. Don’t mind me, I’ll be over here chopping onions for lunch.)
[UPDATE]: We just got a pair of tickets to MGK’s show at Key Club this Wednesday (Feb. 8th). Click her to win tickets.
