Bad Boy rapper Machine Gun Kelly used this year’s SXSW Festival as a backdrop for his latest visual “Half Naked & Almost Famous.” The title track from MGK’s new EP acts as a narrative to his successful tenure in the last 12 months.

“I wrote this song after this crazy night on tour in Tempe, Arizona where we almost got arrested and ate by coyotes while we were drinking on a mountain we weren’t supposed to be on, raged at a bunch of college parties we weren’t invited to, and ran around in our boxers off this big rock into a hotel pool at 5 a.m. We shot the video at 2011’s SXSW and decided to release it after we won MTV’s Breaking Woodie Award for 2012 because it kind of captures the whole ‘chasing our dreams’ experience from beginning to end.”
