Young Thug defies categorization and is a true iconoclast. Emerging on Atlanta’s hip hop scene with his 2011 mixtape series, he launched into the mainstream with his knack for melodicism and unique vocal style. Thug’s highly anticipated new album So Much Fun is scheduled to release later this fall. He recently earned his highest chart placement on the Billboard Hot 100 with his latest single “The London” ft. J. Cole & Travis Scott and produced by T-Minus. “The London” also earned a spot on Spotify’s 2019 Summer Song Predictions list. Thug was recently featured on Ed Sheeran’s song “Feels” on Sheeran’s collaboration album, No.6 Collaborations Project, as well as Post Malone’s new single “Goodbyes” and on Lil Nas X’s new remix of “Old Town Road (Remix)”. In addition to his music, Young Thug recently launched his fashion brand SPIDER which premiered during Wireless week in London earlier this month.
Machine Gun Kelly (EST 19XX/Bad Boy/Interscope Records) recently released his highly anticipated fourth studio album, Hotel Diablo, on July 5. “I Think I’m OKAY” proved to be a standout single, earning a spot on Spotify’s 2019 Summer Song Predictions list. The album’s range seamlessly spans hardcore hip hop to alt-rock and features production from Ronny J, Tommy Brown, SlimXX and BazeXX. Listen HERE. In addition to his musical endeavors, MGK has been hard at work showing off his acting chops, appearing most recently in two major Netflix releases, Bird Box and the Motley Crue biopic, The Dirt. MGK was also featured on the Motley Crue track “The Dirt (Est. 1981)” which appears on the film’s soundtrack. Fans can catch MGK live when he resumes his Hotel Diablo World Tour in August following the annual EST Fest in Butler, OH.
