The violent imagery is part of MGK's remit to provoke. The "My Ex's Best Friend
" singer told LA radio station KROQ that by upsetting people, he wants to keep them interested in him.
"I just mean make them think again. Make them have a moment of like, 'This artist is so polarizing I have to tune in,'" he explained. "Because I don't want to be bored with an artist, and I think Kanye's a great example of that. We all have moments of sitting at dinner tables talking about Kanye and being like, 'I didn't like this!' or, 'I loved this!' or, 'Why is he doing that?!'"
