"It Always Rains Before the Rainbow"

I can say with complete certainty that this is the first Hip Hop track in 2015 that legitimately moved me. I know the comparisons are all too convenient and extremely played out, but Machine Gun Kelly's A Little More has a lot of the same qualities of my favorite Eminem songs. From the beginning piano lead with Victoria Monet's intro vocals to the violin addition before the beat drops, it all comes together into a really well put together track.

The underlying positive message with deeper social undertones helps, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. There's vigor in MGK's diction that augments the army of emotion needed to drive the track to a successful pinnacle. As if the track wasn't dope enough as just audio, there's an equally well-crafted lyric video that does an excellent job of hammering home the message. Feel free and press play as I stand up and slow clap for Kels who is doing everything he can to fulfill his potential as one of the leaders in Hip Hop...#ALittleMore
