Apparently MS didn't actually hire him, but let him perform there for a magazine or something. Oops.

Machine Gun Kelly, Rapper, Makes Ruckus At Microsoft Store Gig, Stomps On Table With Laptops


Before today, many people might never have heard of the rapper Machine Gun Kelly. In fact, some might not have even heard of Microsoft stores. But following what might prove to be an expensive debacle at an Atlanta, Ga., mall, chances are that the two entities will be forever linked, albeit in the footnotes of tech retail history.

Machine Gun Kelly played a raucous gig at the Microsoft store at Lenox Square Mall on Friday, but organizers got way more than they bargained for. During his performance of "Hold On (Shut up)," MGK hopped up on display tables that had several laptop computers on them and began stomping around and swearing.

"**** these computers and shit. MGK's in this bitch," the rapper says in the video below. While the behavior is nothing surprising at a rap show, it appears that the Microsoft store wasn't prepared for it.

LOL, what a bunch of idiots. If they did any research on MGK at all, rather than just taking the "let's get this guy to play at our store, that should make us more hip" approach, they would have known something like this would probably happen. Morons.
