Machine Gun Kelly attends the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards at The Forum on Aug. 27, 2017 in Inglewood, Calif.

Rapper Machine Gun Kelly just released the video for his new single "Let You Go," in which he toys with the nostalgic theme of a 1960s variety show while simultaneously keeping it fresh and far from outdated.

Kelly and his band emerge from their dressing room to perform on a late night show that resembles old variety shows like The Ed Sullivan Show; and, in classic MGK fashion, the video features its fair share of marijuana, including a funny bit with the show's stuffy host. 

2017 is proving to be quite a year for Machine Gun Kelly: after climbing to the top of the charts at the beginning of the year with "Bad Things," his collaboration with Camila Cabello, he released his third album, Bloom, in May -- featuring guest vocals from the likes of Hailee Steinfeld, James Arthur and Migos -- and was recently named the face of designer John Varvatos' 2017 campaign. 

Watch "Let You Go" below.
