“VANCOUVER , PORTLAND AND SEATTLE … IM SO FUCKING SORRY, I TRIED ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING I COULD. I WILL BE BACK SO SOON BUT ORGANISING SOMETHING TO MAKE IT UP TO YOU!” the tweet reads.

MGK chatted with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 to premiere the track, explaining how Barker loved how they put their own twist on it, which ended up coming together more quickly than they all imagined.
“Fun fact about this song is that YUNGBLUD came into my studio 15 minutes before I needed to go to Travis’ house because we had a session planned,” MGK tells Lowe. “I was like, ‘Dude, I have this crazy song idea. I just need you to do something but I don’t have any time. I have to go to Travis’ house. I can’t waste his time. You just gotta get in there and do something.'”
“He went in there and freestyled his whole verse and just left my house all within 10 minutes. I called him back 30 minutes later, and I’m like, ‘Dude, Travis Barker’s putting drums on the song right now.”
Kells opened up about how Hotel Diablo is “[the] album [he] always wanted to put out because there’s actually some fun on it.”
