MGK felt the beat from an early age. He began spitting lyrics onto edgy punk rock compositions and furious rap lines.

His collection also includes powerful vehicles such as the Lamborghini Gallardo, Mercedes Maybach S Class, Rolls Royce Phantom, Jaguar F-Pace, McLaren 720s, and Aston Martin DB11.

Charity Work
