2014–2016: General Admission

Following the release of Black Flag, rumors surfaced that MGK had begun working on his second studio album. In January 2014, he confirmed that he was in the early stages of working on the album, with 2015 being the scheduled year of release.[32] On January 5, 2015, MGK released the song “Till I Die”, which was accompanied with a music video on his VEVO account. Months later, a remix of “Till I Die” with hometown fellow hip-hop group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony was confirmed and released on June 5, 2015. The song aired via WorldStarHipHop and featured French Montana, Yo Gotti, and Ray Cash. On May 18, 2015, the music video for another song titled “A Little More” was released, with the single featuring vocals from Victoria Monet. MGK soon had an interview with MTV, describing the reason as to why he wrote “A Little More”. Stating in the interview: “People always came up to me after the first album and a lot of my friends back home said ‘we need something for the streets’ and then I did Till I Die. Months later, when I look back at the video [for Till I Die] I [was] like ‘Okay, he’s in jail, he’s shot, he’s dead, he snitched’ and just to the point where it’s sad and I wrote the song to describe how I see the world as a much mature person.” He also updated the status on his second studio album, noting that the album is finished, and stating that the album would contain “more lyricism and [would be more] stylistically [influenced by] hip-hop but musically, sonically [would contain] more live instrumentation.”

Following MGK’s previous affiliation with the company, he made a return to WWE Raw on the June 15, 2015, episode of the show. The show was hosted in MGK’s home town of Cleveland and MGK appeared as a guest on the show, performing “Till I Die” and “A Little More”. As he finished performing, he was attacked and power-bombed through the stage by WWE wrestler Kevin Owens in a storyline. The attack was due to MGK’s previous connection with Owens’ rival, John Cena. MGK soon announced a national tour to begin in the summer of 2015, touring throughout the United States from early July to the beginning of September, with 31 planned dates throughout the course of the two months.

On June 25, MGK released the title of his second album as General Admission, due to be released in late September 2015. On July 23, 2015, MGK released Fuck It, a 10-track mixtape containing songs that didn’t make the final tracklist of General Admission. The mixtape was reportedly released by MGK independently following Bad Boy consistently delaying the release of General Admission. On September 10, 2015, MGK announced the release date and the album art of General Admission, stating that the album would be released on October 16 of that year. General Admission released on the described date, and debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200, powered by first week sales 56,000 album-equivalent units; it has sold 49,000 copies in its first week, with the remainder of its unit total reflecting the album’s streaming activity and track sales. The album also debuted at number one on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.

2016–present: Bloom
In February, MGK appeared at Fastlane, which was hosted at the Quicken Loans Arena in downtown Cleveland.

MGK released “Bad Things” in late 2016, a joint single with Camila Cabello, which has reached a peak of number four on the US Billboard Hot 100.

MGK was going to be the opening act on the North American leg of Linkin Park’s One More Light Tour before the tour was canceled due to Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington’s suicide. Kelly would subsequently pay tribute to Bennington by releasing an acoustic cover of the Linkin Park song “Numb”.

2014–2016: General Admission

On September 3, 2018, MGK released the song “Rap Devil”. The track was a response to Eminem’s diss track “Not Alike” off of his album Kamikaze. Playing on Eminem’s own “Rap God” single, the track accuses Eminem of trying to sideline MGK’s career after a comment MGK made in 2012 about Eminem’s teenage daughter, Hailie. MGK publicly stated on his Twitter account that on the response track he was “standing up for not just myself, but my generation. doing the same shit you did back in your day.” “Rap Devil” topped the iTunes Chart on September 10, 2018. On September 14, 2018, Eminem responded to “Rap Devil” with his own diss track, “Killshot”.

On September 21, 2018, MGK released the EP Binge, which had first week sales of 21,519 units.

Acting career

MGK made his film debut in Beyond the Lights (2014), a romantic drama in which he played a “shallow, self-important” rapper named Kid Culprit. In 2016, he featured in four more films of various genres, including The Land, a Cleveland-set drama produced by fellow rapper Nas. In the same year, he had a recurring role on the Showtime comedy-drama series Roadies as Wes, a former Pearl Jam roadie. He played Felix in the Netflix film Bird Box (2018), and portrayed drummer Tommy Lee in The Dirt, a 2019 Netflix drama about Mötley Crüe. His most recently released movie is Big Time Adolescence, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2019. MGK was also featured in two episodes of MTV’s Wild n Out in 2013 and 2017.
