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.
