No Matter What You Think of MGK, Cleveland Gets Some Love in This Video

Share on Nextdoor


As Machine Gun Kelly revs up for the release of his debut album later this summer, you're gonna see his face a lot.

So you better get used to it.

During MGK's recent roll through SWSW, Canadian interviewer Nardwuar pulled the Cleveland rapper in for a 10-minute interview to talk about all things Cleveland.

If you're not familiar with Nardwuar, the dude is well-known for doing super in-depth research on the people he interviews, often surprising the hell out of them with his knowledge of stuff that even they usually have forgotten about.

You'll see some of that shock on MGK's face in the above video.

Of course they talk Cleveland music, from the obvious rappers (like Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and Ray Cash) to the more obscure ones (anyone remember M.C. Squirt in the '80s?).

They also talk about some old-school Cleveland hardcore (MGK is a fan). Nardwuar even gives MGK a DVD of the '90s punk band Face Value that was filmed at Peabody's.

In addition to Peabody's, MGK also gives plenty of love to Speedys Market, Famous G's gyros, Cleveland mustard, and Ohio City Tattoo.

MGK also moons the camera before exiting. So you can stop the video after they talk about his tattoos.

You're welcome. —Michael Gallucci
