With anticipation building for Machine Gun Kelly‘s upcoming Black Flag mixtape, the Cleveland city rhymer drops a new video for the joint “Skate Cans” and proves to the naysayers that he’s an emcee to be taken seriously.
Musically the track sits somewhere between dope and very dope, while visually the independently shot black and white flick is a skateboarder’s dream mini movie. Mixing stunts with drums, MGK, his crew and professional skater Ryan Sheckler, are seen one minute climbing fences in order to perform at times ridiculous stunts, whilst the next the Bad Boy signee is seen getting his rapid fire old school flow [which has never sounded better] on over some trash can drums.
With everything from twisted visual effects to authentic hip-hop instrumentation, “Skate Cans” is by far some of the best work MGK has dropped for a minute. After seeing “Champions” and now this, Black Flag is set to be something special.
