Machine Gun Kelly dropped the music video for his song “Candy” featuring Trippie Redd that comments on drug addiction.  

The song comes from MGK’s most recent album Hotel Diablo. The new video stars his best friend Pete Davidson, which marks the actor’s second appearance after last summer’s “LOCO.”

In the video, the Saturday Night Live star is seen playing a pharmacist that some kids attempt to buy drugs off of. The song is about MGK’s struggle with addiction, so it’s fitting that the video takes place in a pharmacy. 

You can see the full video for yourself below.

More Machine Gun Kelly news

On MGK’s new album, he takes aim at fellow rapper Eminem and his viral “Killshot” diss track in his track “FLOOR 13.” 

On July 3, MGK dropped a teaser with the caption: “stay off FLOOR 13. Two more days until #HotelDiablo.”

Track 7 on the album is the song “FLOOR 13” in which MGK takes aim at Eminem and his “missed” kill shot.

Back in August, Eminem dropped his surprise album Kamikaze. On it, he included the track “Not Alike” which took shots at a few rappers including MGK.

MGK’s “Rap Devil” response and Eminem’s “Killshot” follow-up sparked a debate with fans on who really won in this “rap battle.”

While the dust has seemed to settle on the whole ordeal, MGK’s most recent release pours salt into old wounds.

“FLOOR 13” opens with the lyrics, “I just spent too many minutes watchin’ little videos of shitty wannabe rappers dissing me/I just spent the winter livin’ after someone tried to send a kill shot, missin’ me.”

In verse 2 of the track, MGK makes a play off of Em’s 2018 track, “Venom” which was made for the Marvel movie by the same name.

“I sold 40 million records, I ain’t even 30/Give me 20 seconds, I’ll list 10 movies that I been in/One legend that tried to fuck with me and got the venom.”

You can listen to the full track below.
