MGK Inspires Something Other Than a Flash Mob



Rapper Machine Gun Kelly just released a follow-up video to the August one he made about a wheelchair-bound fan (who looks an awful lot like MGK, except for that whole wheelchair part), who was inspired by the Cleveland rapper to "walk someday."

It starts in the parking lot at a Blink-182 concert, where the Brunswick-based fan tells MGK he'll walk someday. They exchange hugs, MGK's pants almost fall down, and then the dude in the wheelchair tells the rapper how much he loves him.

The story picks up a few months later, where MGK invites the fan onstage with him. And whaddaya know? The kid actually walks! That makes MGK like Jesus, or at least like Ernest Angley.

Of course he returns to his wheelchair a few seconds later. But still, it sure beats the Strongsville flash mob Machine Gun Kelly inspired back in August.

MGK is currently wrapping up his first official music video now that he's a major-league player.

He'll also be performing on BET's 106 and Park today with his new boss Diddy. —Michael Gallucci
