EDITORS’ NOTES

The cover of Machine Gun Kelly’s Hotel Diablo features the Cleveland MC as a child, hanging upside down with his head cracked open, his innermost thoughts ostensibly falling out for the world to hear. If the actual album is to be believed, what’s been cooped up inside a young MGK’s head is pain. Across the album, he catalogs a number of anguishes, including the continued and unrelenting jeers of the internet (“Floor 13”), battles with suicidal tendencies (“Glass House”), and what sounds like an extremely strained, if not irreparable, relationship with his own mother (“Burning Memories”). His signature blend of rap vocals and gnashing rock guitars is here, as are standout contributions from Trippie Redd, Travis Barker, and YUNGBLUD.

Honestly

I didnt like MGK til he started making like a rock rap mix, i think Eminem did something to him, bt i like it better

Em Stan’s still coming here just to put a 1star....

Months later and y’all wanna say MGK “died” but yet Between him and em I’ve only heard Colson’s name... so WHO REALLY DIED ??? ❌❌ solid album all around coming from Pre a Lace up mixtape fan. Love the growth, he’s reaching his final form and it’s beautiful.

Work of Art

Hotel Diablo is a pivotal album that shows the evolution of an artist that is singularly labeled as a rapper. MGK has proved that he fully transcends all genre classifications and is not just a musician—he is an artist.
