Machine Gun Kelly will be rocking the revamped Reebok Club C Sneaker on his upcoming tour.
Cleveland actor and rapper Machine Gun Kelly has held down several jobs over the years. He once worked at an airbrush shop in Tower City, slyly passing out his music to as many customers as possible. He also had a gig at Chipotle, where apparently his guacamole-making skills were on point. And now Kelly can add Reebok Global Ambassador to his resume.

The sportswear company recently added MGK to its already stacked roster of celebrity ambassadors, including Rae Sremmurd, Teyana Taylor and Future. Reebok will capitalize on the immense fan base that Kelly has garnered over the years since his meteoric rise in 2011, while MGK will get some classic kicks out of the deal.

Damion Presson, director of global entertainment marketing for Reebok, welcomed the Cleveland rapper in a (pretty generic) statement saying, "He has such a great energy around him and connection to his fans through his message. His dynamism truly connects to our brand and really comes through in everything he touches."

MGK is set to rock the newly revitalized Club C Shoe, which originally debuted in 1985, on his upcoming tour.

He also showed his enthusiasm for the Reebok brand saying in a statement:

“It’s awesome to have a brand like Reebok support what you stand for as well as your creative vision, and I’m excited to show you what a Reebok and Machine Gun Kelly collaboration is all about.”
