Artist Check-In – Machine Gun Kelly

This month has been the first month Machine Gun Kelly has had “off” in a few years. When we say “off” we definitely don’t mean that he isn’t working. In fact, he has more on his plate than even before. He has simply taken the month off from touring and playing shows. As you may know, he broke his foot last month and even that did not stop him from canceling a single show. The recent time off has allowed him to focus on letting that heal along with many of the upcoming projects.
MGK and the crew have been in the studio working on the sophomore album. A lot of progress has been made so stay tuned on updates for when you can expect the album to drop. WHile the nights have been spent in the studio, the days have been spent on the movie set. MGK already filmed one movie earlier this year and a second movie is being filmed now. The details for this one are being kept under wraps right now but look for more info dropping soon. Next month, MGK will head to Salt Lake City where he will film his 3rd movie of the year, “SLC Punk 2”. The original SLC Punk was a classic and the sequel already has a ton of buzz behind it.
Finally, EST Fest 2014 is right around the corner. This is a must-go-to if you are a Machine Gun Kelly fan. Get more info and your tickets for that here http://www.est-fest.com/.

Street League Stop #1

The 2014 Street League started this weekend in LA with the Pro Open in Los Angeles. Some of the top amateurs were invited for out to compete for their chance to join the league on Day number 1. Felipe Gustavo finished 3rd overall for the day and moved onto Sunday.

The Street League pros hit the course on Sunday, joined by Saturday’s top eight am qualifyers. It was a crazy cut in the semifinal, narrowing the 30 skater field down to an eight man final. It was some of the best skateboarding we have ever witnessed. At the end of the day, Nyjah walked away with the first win of the year and earned himself a golden ticket straight to the championship in New York in August. Shane O’Neill also won the Diamond Life Afterparty best trick contest so congrats to him as well. Here are the full results and some photos from the event as well.

1. Nyjah Huston – 54.6
2. Ishod Wair – 52.0
3. Paul Rodriguez – 51.1
4. Shane O’Neill – 51.0
5. Torey Pudwill – 49.8
6. Luan Oliveira – 33.1
7. Chris Cole – 15.0
8. Matt Berger – 3.4
