So I have touched on the MGK phenomenal previously, and while I’m still not a fan I think I have an idea as to why he is winning.  He kind of has a wave that the everyday man can relate to.  Part of the media bias in hip-hop has to do with the fact the media is based in NYC.  Sometimes us media types get caught up in our environment and don’t think outside of it.  I think this kid is corny as hell, but the average kid in Indianapolis or whatever might think he is the man.  He represents “making it” to middle America.  There is a lot of power in that.  There have also been rumors that the Diddler is trying to sign him.  Whatever that means in 2011.

Sidebar: If this kid cut back on the ghey facial expressions he might be able to go places.
