"Touring with Tech N9ne is going to be wild. I'm going to Lace Up and bring the energy to so many cities across the country. I'm thankful to be able to play to in a bunch of new cities and give them a crazy memorable show," exclaims MGK.


MGK is having a hot winter with the mega success of his single "Wild Boy" featuring Waka Flocka and the 2011 title of MTV's Hottest Breakthrough MC competition along with the announcement of joining the 2012 Van's Warped tour this summer. As the leader of the Lace Up Movement, MGK passionately sets out to inspire fans from all walks of life with his music and story.

Already attaining commercial success, MGK's "Invincible" song is featured in television and radio advertisements for the new HTC Rezound smartphone from Verizon Wireless with Beats Audio. MGK was recently honored again when "Invincible" was selected as the WWE Wrestlemania 28 Official Theme Song. Wrestlemania 28 is taking place April 1, 2012 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida.
