Machine Gun Kelly was in NYC for a sold-out show on his Alpha Omega tour, so he stopped by Ebro In The Morning to discuss his new song, “Bad Things.” The track is his first-ever Top 40 record (“Wild Boy” only hit #89 believe it or not!,) and it features Fifth Harmony‘s Camila Cabello.
During the chat with Rosenberg and myself, MGK discussed how LeBron James breathed life into Cleveland, why he turned down a movie role over the N-word, being welcomed by the Zoo Gang while filming a video in Paterson and more!
Tune into the interview below. “Bad Things” is available now on iTunes.
Yesterday morning, an energetic Travi$ Scott took over Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning to discuss his new album, Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight (which is on pace for a number one debut.)
I must say, I haven’t seen Trav this talkative in quite some time! During the interview, he discussed why he made such an intricate album title, his creative process for the music, watching Jay Z record, why he idolizes Kid Cudi, writing for other artists and more.
Check out the full interview below. (P.S. No, I was not hungover! I was wearing sunglasses because I had a migraine and you know how light affects that! LOL.)
Checkers, not chess.
Drake made quite the moment on stage last night in Detroit, bringing out the city’s hometown hero, Eminem, to perform their 2009 song, “Forever.” While this is a moment in and of itself, the impact it had was that much more, considering the rumors that circulated last week about the pair having beef because of Eminem‘s close affiliation to Joe Budden. (The rumor was started when Hot 97‘s Ebro referenced a convo with Drake where he joked about the possibility of a diss from Em on Joe‘s behalf, and listeners thought he was saying it was a serious conversation.)
“SHARED THE STAGE WITH THE GOAT FOR DETROIT,” Drake wrote afterward. “DONE THE HYPE.” As for Em, his caption sparked some controversy, as uninformed people thought he was taking a shot at Joe (who’s signed to Shady Records with his group, Slaughterhouse,) not realizing he was referencing their location at the Joe Louis Arena:
As he closed out the NYC run of his Summer Sixteen tour on Monday night, Drake took one last jab at Hot 97, calling his show the “real Summer Jam.” He also questioned what the legendary station has done for New York. Ha!
The Ebro In The Morning crew had plenty to say about it this morning. While debating the origins of the vendetta, Ebro handed Drake a #CongratulationsYouPlayedYourself, as if it’s over the notion he was serious about the Eminem joke, that would be outlandish.
Check out what he and Rosenberg had to say below.
During night one of four of the NYC run of his tour with Future, Drake had some interesting words for Funk Flex and Hot 97 last night.
Though the rumor is that Drake said “f*ck Hot 97,” along with a call to fire Funk Flex, so far the only video to surface from the night is the part about Flex. (It appears the kids behind the @ComplexMusic were a little overzealous in their initial tweets.) The beef stems from last summer, when Flex took Meek Mill’s side during the beef, and went on to premiere the now-infamous Quentin Miller reference tracks.
While Flex‘s next time on air is Saturday night (where he plans to respond, as per his tweet,) the Ebro In The Morning crew addressed the situation first thing this morning. As you know, Ebro made headlines regarding Drake this week as well, as his jokes about a convo he’d had in private with Drake about Eminem went viral. He’s responded to that as well, and you can check out everyone’s responses below.
When Lil Yachty stopped by Ebro In The Morning last month, Ebro gave him a bit of a hard time. Though he admitted he fucks with Lil Boat on a personal level, he noted that being a lyrical rapper wasn’t really Yachty‘s thing, and challenged him further by trying to have him freestyle.
Yachty‘s new project Summer Songs 2 dropped on Tuesday night, and on it, he had a song dedicated to Ebro just for that reason. On “For Hot 97,” the Atlanta rapper gets a little more lyrical than he usually does – but Ebro still wasn’t here for it! In his critique the next morning, Ebro called Yachty “a high school ass rapper” and teased him for being offended. So what did Yachty do? Call up the request line (yes, not even the private line for artists!) and check Ebro on air. REAL!
Listen to the hilarious exchange below.
Back when the Meek Mill and Drake beef went down last summer, many believed DJ Drama to have had a hand in it – specifically with giving the Quentin Miller reference tracks to Meek and Funk Flex.
His tweets around that time seemed to confirm his involvement, as he had written:
