The Verge - Upcoming American rapper Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) was hired to perform at Microsoft’s Atlanta retail store on Friday, but the software giant got more than it bargained for. MGK performed ‘Hold On (Shut up)’ for the crowd at the Microsoft Store. After rapping “fuck these computers…” the rapper started jumping between tables at the store that contained laptop and tablet computers. All Hip Hop reports that the rapper stomped on “at least five computers” before cops were called and Microsoft Store staff cut the music and microphone. MGK was clearly angered at Microsoft’s decision to cut his music, telling staff “I’m not getting down” before demanding them to “play that shit.” He was then promptly met by Microsoft Store employees and at least three police officers before being escorted to a private area at the rear of the store.
I don’t want to act like the smartest guy in the room or anything and tell people how to run their business but I got to be honest. In terms of business decisions hiring a crazy white rapper named “Machine Gun Kelly” to perform a song called Shut Up where he yells about cocaine at your retail store is probably not the wisest. Like I’d be literally shocked if the performance DIDN’T end with him jumping on all your laptops and tablets smashing them to bits yelling “Fuck these computers,” let alone surprised by it. Just seems like something a guy named Machine Gun Kelly would do.
