Machine Gun Kelly Booking

Hip-Hop Artist

Machine Gun Kelly booking info

Machine Gun Kelly may be signed to a major label but he built up his movement all on his own. He had people flocking to his YouTube videos before he ever had a deal, and he is one of the most popular acts to see live. Promoters are booking Machine Gun Kelly for shows throughout the nation, and his profile has only gotten bigger and bigger over time. People are drawn to his Lace Up movement, and the energy that he brings to his shows.

He was born in Houston, TX, but has traveled all around the world. He first got into hip-hop by listening to Ludacris and DMX, and he began to start writing raps. He started doing press appearances like showing up on MTV2 to do freestyles, and he started releasing mixtapes that would gain a lot of attention in the area. The attention allowed the MGK booking price to go up quite a lot, especially as the Cleveland Cavaliers began using his music during their hoe games. His songs also began to get a lot of play within the area, and he was projected to be one of the hottest up and coming rappers that was set to blow up. People were ready to reserve him for shows, as they saw the energy that he was bringing and saw the potential of what he could become in the near future.

He began forming relationships with rappers and other people within the industry like Juicy J, Lex Luger, and Steve-O. He began doing shows all around, like doing a SXSW show, and popping up at different clubs throughout the nation. Just as nightclubs were booking Machine Gun Kelly for events, he went and signed with P. Diddy’s Bad Boy Records. Upon signing, he released his first single “Wild Boy” which featured Brick Squad 1017 member Waka Flocka Flames. The video popped up on 106 & Park and started to  shoot up the charts. The single built up the anticipation for the album, and everybody was wondering what direction he was going to go in. He released a mixtape prior to the album, that did fairly well and showed his diversity in his music. At this time, booking MGK was not an easy feat as he was extremely busy prepping for his album release.

He released another single called “Invincible” that gained some traction but wasn’t nearly as popular as Wild Boy. The song was featured as a theme song on WrestleMania XXVII, and it was also used during NFL games too. While the buzz was building for his album, he started to do more press. XXL Magazine added him to the Top 10 Freshmen list, which was well deserved as his buzz was building pretty fast. He finally released his album “Lace Up” in October of 2012, and was able to get features from rapper like DMX, Lil Jon, Twista, Young Jeezy, and Bun B. The album sold over 50,000 copies in the first week, which is pretty good.

Machine Gun Kelly is currently working hard getting ready to release another album, and this time he wants it to get more attention than his debut did. Promoters are patiently waiting to get the Machine Gun Kelly booking info and price, to see when they would like to have him come for shows in their area.

Where can I find artist booking prices?
Artist prices are not published. When you want to secure an artist, you have to make an offer. Even though, you do not want to be too high or too low, you need to base your offer on your budget. We have exact prices for many artists, and for other artists we use historical data along with data from their current activity (music sales, radio play, recent ticket prices, show attendance, etc). Some offers may include a flat fee which is the guarantee, in addition to a percentage of the NET profit.
