Update: The Casey McPerry-directed visuals for MGK’s Wanna Ball single have been added.
It’s become downright cliché to criticize rap for its focus on material wealth and conspicuous consumption, but there’s a simple psychological explanation. As Machine Gun Kelly puts it on the chorus of his latest feature, “If you never had a penny, don’t you Wanna Ball?” On this brand new promo cut, the Cleveland phenom reflects on the trajectory his life has followed to date, explaining how his beginnings at the bottom of the economic heap ignited an unstoppable drive to carve out a profitable niche in the world. To back his passionate aspirational bars, Pro Logic cooks up an appropriately anthemic synth/sample beat. Feeling it? Then stay tuned; this joint is just a loosie, but we’ll keep you posted on MGK’s plans in the weeks and months ahead.
