Half Naked & Almost Famous - EP
Label: Bad Boy Records PS
MGK revives the brawling, elbow-throwing schools of Southern crunk and NYC street-hop. Like his rival Yelawolf, MGK rips over mosh-pit tracks with a double-time bounce flow. His Half-Naked and Almost Famous EP was originally planned as a full-length album, and during a short and unremarkable 17 minutes he teams up with dreadlocked headbanger Waka Flocka Flame on "Wild Boy," and throws up props to his native Cleveland on the title track. Although MGK has clearly defined his sound as pumped-up aggression, he doesn't have the quality songs to pull it off yet.
