Machine Gun Kelly has decided to put on his director hat this time around. Instead of releasing another punk hip-hop track or album, he presented the world with his film Downfalls High.
In MGK’s words, Downfalls High is “a new pop-punk Grease.” The film is narrated by him and blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and was created with MOD SUN.
The musical also features cameos from guests featured on the album like Trippie Redd, Iann Dior, and blackbear. Chase Hudson and Euphoria‘s Sydney Sweeney are the lead stars.
He told the press,
“It was almost like shooting 14 music videos back-to-back, but with a narrative that’s outside of my personal life stories. It focuses on other characters, and then me and [Barker] are just the narrators. It’s an interesting concept because it hasn’t been done for an album ever, maybe outside of like Pink Floyd’s The Wall.”
