Rapper causes an uproar at a Microsoft Store

Hip-hop's newest sensation, Machine Gun Kelly has caused quite the uproar at a gig in a Microsoft store in Atlanta last Friday.

The Houston-born rapper was promoting his debut album, Lace up when he struck nerves in the Microsoft store when his performance escalated and resulted in him jumping onto tables which were filled with laptops and desktops, throwing Microsoft’s promotional signs, and of course giving the middle finger to Microsoft employees.

The video below shows what MGK was up to in Microsoft's store in Atlanta:

MGK reportedly stomped on five computers before his music and microphone were cut off. Considering his performance was cancelled, MGK wasn’t happy and refused to get down from one of the tables. Soon after, he was escorted out of the Microsoft store by authorities. Since then, MGK has tweeted a picture of himself giving the middle finger to people around him.

The rapper's debut album, titled Lace Up is released on October 9th, for those actually interested.

Move on folks, nothing of any merit or significance to see here. Move on.

When a child acts up to get attention you don't give him what he wants. What a turd.

That's just ignorant. I don't even know who he is and I honestly don't care too. I'm more into Tupac and Biggie's music and rock then most of the stuff they have out their now. Besides he'll end up fading away as soon as some other "new" artist comes out....music just seems more like a fad anymore

I hope that he was made to pay for the damage he caused to the computers and the store in general. I also hope that he didn't get paid before his "so called" gig !!

Machine Gun MORON!!! Pull up your pants, nobody wants to see your tightey whitey skid marks. You just made a complete FOOL out of yourself. Who would even think of buying anything from that low life idiot...

Destroys property and lols about it to the Internet.

His existence could be completely erased and nobody would care.

Jake, I am very disappointed in you for not continuing your rhyming beyond the title. THIS ARTICLE NEEDED TO BE ALL RHYMES!

I was actually contemplating it, then wondered if it'd actually get approved XD. I did a great Snoop Dogg -related article where I used to work which had load of references and puns to his song titles throughout. Haha!

We'll have to enforce a rule in future where we rhyme for any rapper-focused story, could make for some great laughs.

The US mainstream music scene is so bad it needs crap like this to market it these days instead of having some actual decent songs....


Trance/Hands-Up/Hardstyle/Pure House FTW!!!!

The US mainstream music scene, as music is traditional defined, ended with Classic disco. It may not have been great music, but it WAS music. Since then, ??

I like how everyone here is talking so much smack when they probably couldn't pull out a stack of cash like him now, just because. I'm not even a fan of MGK, I'm just saying.

Organised crime also pays well. Think everyone should look up those criminals?

I like how everybody isn't a fan of bareback gay orgy porn when they probably couldn't pull out a stack of cash like the actors now, just because. I'm not even a fan of bareback gay orgy porn, I'm just saying.

All rappers are morons and should be put down for the sake of society.

I know rappers that will destroy you at computing and math, while still managing to achieve half a million views on YouTube in a week.

hahahaha typical MGK. who remembers his broke ass when he had no food for his stomach. nobody. nobody cares. bad boy rec will kill his career.

As a Houstonian; NOT proud. What was Microsoft thinking by giving him the gig? Must not have been really much other choice...

Microsoft is getting desperate about the upcoming Windows-8 debacle.

As a Houstonian myself, I have to agree. What a disgrace to both the city and the music scene. Ugh.

Pull your pant up, and take off that stocking cap - you are indoors in Atlanta, it is not cold.

He was rocking saggy skinny jeans in what looked like tighty whities doing silly white boy suburban pseudo-gangster rap... Microsoft got what it deserved after putting it's costumers through that.

Yep. Why hire trash to perform? Couldn't get Jerry Springer?

I guess any publicity is good publicity when you're a no-talent dirtbag.

Yeah.. I really feel sorry for this guy... he obviously has some issues, probably abused as a child. He probably wants to be a serious performer but has lack of creativity due to years of abuse. Oh well, some people win and some are just losers, he cant change being a loser.
