Machine Gun Kelly Signs With Interscope Records

Posted By on Wed, Aug 3, 2011 at 11:56 AM

Looks like Cleveland rapper Machine Gun Kelly has signed with Interscope Records.

In this new four-minute video, he talks about his rise from Cleveland's streets to playing a sold-out show at House of Blues to his love for his hometown.

Near the end of the clip you'll see MGK hanging with Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine and Diddy. And as he proved in the Joaquin Phoenix documentary, the former Puff Daddy doesn't just hang with any ol' white rapper. —Michael Gallucci
