Machine Gun Kelly, Young Thug live it up in “Bullets With Names” video
Machine Gun Kelly just released a fiery new track with Young Thug, RJMrLa and Lil Duke on March 13. The new song is called "Bullets with Names" and shows a return to the rap-oriented roots of which MGK hails.
Now, the multi-talented artist dropped the corresponding music video for the track, and just like the song that inspired it, it goes equally as hard.
"Bullets With Names" is the second music video that Machine Gun Kelly has dropped in as many weeks. On March 5, Machine Gun Kelly dropped his music video for “why are you here” but it wasn’t in the way he probably wanted. Someone leaked the video and instead of attempting to cover it up, MGK shared the link as well.
Next, on March 12, MGK teased the new song in a social media video. The post is pretty on-brand for him. The video showed him smoking and playing the track in the background.
Machine Gun Kelly dropped the song the following morning and fans quickly came to admire the collaboration between the former tour mates in MGK and Young Thug, as well as the addition of RJMrLA and Lil Duke. The Jersey Shore-themed intro and rapid-fire flow put the icing on the cake to an unexpected song from MGK.
Since December, it seems out only news surrounding Kelly was about his upcoming pop-punk album Tickets To My Downfall and all of the collaborations and work being done on that front by himself, Travis Barker YUNGBLUD, Bert McCracken, blackbear, Young Thug and more.That record is due out this summer, but for now, aside from teasing us with a Paramore classic, MGK is tiding us over with the music video for "Bullets With Names." He announced the video via social media on March 16.
The video included concert footage from Kelly and Young Thug's tour, some skateboarding footage, a bloody Machine Gun Kelly and a whole lot of partying. Check it out below.

Machine Gun Kelly rolled out of bed just after 7 a.m. PT on March 16 to join YUNGBLUD at his livestreaming event, but the rocking didn’t stop there as he brought the world a short but sweet cover of a Paramore classic.
The clip follows MGK sharing a cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Californication” Sunday night amid social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the first Instagram story post, he writes, “I’m gonna learn one new song every day this week. Which one tomorrow?”
