Machine Gun Kelly producer teases ‘Hotel Diablo’ track
We need the album already.May 3, 2019
Machine Gun Kelly fans are getting to hear a bit more of the rapper’s upcoming record Hotel Diablo.
Thanks to MGK’s producer and friend Slimxx, we got to hear a bit more of a song that was previously teased when the rapper announced his album’s name.
Slimxx posted an Instagram story of the song while he was in the car. MGK can be heard saying, “It’s 5:36-6-6.” According to the display screen of the car, the song is saved as that line, “53666,” but it’s unclear if this is the track’s official name. You can see the recordings of that below.

However, the rapper also used the post as an opportunity to tell fans that he hasn’t stopped thinking about his fourth album.
“Half a billion streams this year,” the rapper says in the Instagram post. “Very grateful but I didn’t give you the 4th album and I can’t stop thinking about that. I finally figured out what I’m gonna call it last night and I’m starting it all over from scratch. This one’s from the soul.”
The following month, he shared what could be some new album beats. Then in February, MGK popped up in the studio with Barker, suggesting for the first time on this album cycle that they were working together on something. Days later, the aforementioned clips of the duo and YUNGBLUD were shared.
Shortly after, MGK revealed the upcoming record is going to be “just as honest” as sophomore full-length General Admission. Days later, the first hint of potential new music surfaced as BFF and Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson shared a clip of MGK referencing him.
“I even got my homie Pete out here like fuck the jokes,” the song declares.
Check that out below.
A few days after that, as previously mentioned MGK broke the news of Hotel Diablo and a tour of the same name. He also shared another snippet of the same song Slimxx shared. It could perhaps be the one he pushed to pay respects to late rapper Nipsey Hussle.
