Machine Gun Kelly Discusses Microsoft Store Incident

(AllHipHop News) Cleveland rapper Machine Gun Kelly is responding to criticism over a recent performance at a Microsoft store, in Atlanta, Georgia.

The rapper was performing for The Source Power 30 reception at the Microsoft Store in Lenox Square Mall on Friday (September 28).

During the rapper’s performance of the track “Hold On (Shut Up),” Machine Gun Kelly hopped on a display table and began cursing.

The rapper was asked to leave the store after the performance, which was caught on video and quickly went viral.

“Last Friday, I was asked to perform at The Source’s Power 30 reception and honored to do so,” Machine Gun Kelly said in a statement released today (October 3). “My only goal was to give a great performance.”

The rapper denied published reports that he stomped on as many as five computers on the display table-turned stage, while he was rhyming.

“Contrary to what is being reported by the media, I did not stomp on any computers, damage any store property nor were the police called on my behalf,” Machine Gun Kelly said. “There was some confusion as to where I should perform. But, in the end, it was all resolved. I’d like to thank The Source for the opportunity and let the people at Microsoft know I meant no disrespect.”

  • That video was hilarious he was doing a white mans version of a slave ho down. The way he was stomping. People was laughing. He looked like he was acting. Rap doesn’t fit him.

    • hoeyuno

      No rap does not suit this dude.

  • Abrasive Angel

    Why is hiphop allowing this bullshit in. Regardless of record companies controlling the industry and whatever but we have a personal responsibility our own damn country to stop allowing muthafuckas like this in and using our shit to make money. We allowed Eminem in and he had lyrics but now we just letting any crazy ass limp bizkit white boy in and using our shit. Run his ass out our shit.

  • hoeyuno

    This dude sucks. And don’t hate on college cause your ass Is too dumb to get in.

  • I disagree with the comments…while the only MGK track I like so far, is ” I Don’t Dance” feat DMX, MGK goes hard with the live show!

    I wish him well!
