Machine Gun Kelly drops off a new 9-track EP titled "Binge."
Machine Gun Kelly caught the attention of the industry last week he released his Eminem-diss “Rap Devil,” in response to Em’s comments on his surprise album Kamikaze. MGK garnered positive reactions from the hip-hop community for his diss, giving him the upper hand on their highly publicized feud, until the other day that is. Last Friday, Eminem finally fired back at MGK on his own song “Killshot,” which received rave reviews for it’s lethal shots. Then just hours later, with all eyes awaiting his response, MGK reacted to the song calling it “trash” & a 6 out of 10, before going onto to immediately announce a new EP right after that called Binge, which he said was dropping today (9/21), and alas here it is. It’s pretty clear MGK is capitalizing off the extra attention on him right now with this new EP, but we cant blame him for that.
“I’m standing up for not just myself, but my generation,” MGK said. “I’m doing the same shit you [Eminem] did back in your day. life is still real on my side, and I had to take time from the grind to defend myself from someone I called an idol.”
The follow up to last year’s Bloom contains 9 songs in total and features a lone appearance from ATL crooner 24Hrs, who appears on the song “Signs.” Meanwhile, production is handled by the likes Ronny J, Honorable C.N.O.T.E., JP Did This 1, Nils, SlimXX, & more.
Out now, fans can stream the 9-song EP in its entirety via any one of the streaming platforms (below). Take a close listen and let us know what you think.
