Unlike the promo clip for MGK’s Lace Up Tour 2013, Cleveland rapper Machine Gun Kelly’s Tuesday show at the Newport shouldn’t involve waiving a piece of cardboard at passing motorists, pleading for their attendance.

Especially if he’s serious about abandoning the MGK acronym and re-embracing the full Machine Gun Kelly moniker along with the hunger and rapid-fire technical ability that earned him the Prohibition-era gangster’s name in the first place.
