Machine Gun Kelly’s Hotel Diablo is set to hit the streets next month, and to prepare fans for the heat, the rapper drops off a minute-long explosion with “Breaking News 2.” This comes just in time for the kick off of his “Hotel Diablo Tour,” a 51-city international run that begins May 10. The 29-year-old rapper delivered his Binge EP back in September 2018, fueling rumors that a studio release was on the way. It wasn’t until April that Kelly confirmed he was cooking up something in the studio when he tweeted that he’s finally settled on a name for the record.
Back in 2013, Kelly gave us “Breaking News,” his well-received single from his Black Flag album. “Breaking News 2” encompasses that same energy and in the visual, Kelly records himself laying down the track. The video begins as he presses play and throws on his headphones, blasting rhymes into the mic until he ends with the lyrics “It’s Hotel Diablo” and calmly ends his lyrical attack. One thing is for sure: Kelly is not playing around.
