Machine Gun Kelly teams up with rap artists

Machine Gun Kelly's Lace Up released October 9. This album features a bunch of well-known rap artists such as Wacka Flocka Flame, Lil Jon and Young Jeezy. The song that stood out the most to me was the song "D3mon's" featuring DMX. The reason it stood out the most was the intro of the song, it starts off with a synth riff which sounds creepy and eerie. From what I get from reading the lyrics such as "Father I've killed a man but I had to do it, only thing he is me, damn, how the fuck you couldn't get me through this." I feel like he is talking about dealing with his inner demons hence the title of the song "D3mons".

The next song is the self-entitled track "Lace Up" featuring Lil Jon. I really don't like this song, and the reason for that is it sounds like any other rap song talking about smoking the green and degrading women, which is why I'm not a big fan of rap.

The last song is "Stereo" featuring Fitts from The Dropkicks. This song is pretty cool because it's got catchy beat to it and it's an upbeat song, which is something I think everyone likes.

My rating for this album would be 5 out of 10 because most of songs didn't catch my attention. I think it could have been better. Although I'm not a rap artist, I certainly could have come up with better lyrics.
