Musician destroyed Microsoft computers then proceeded to turn his aggression on store employees with cocky freestyle

Richard Colson Barker, alias MGK ("Machine Gun Kelly"), comes with some pretty impressive "cred".  He rose to fame/infamy via winning rap battles at the Apollo Theater and was recently named MTV's Hottest Breakthrough MC of 2011.

Seeing as MGK's mix tapes were burning up the underground, Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) salivated at the chance to win "street-cred" and joined hip-hop magazine The Source to hold a special event at the Atlanta, Georgia Microsoft Store.  Past events with artists such as Flo Rida (who performed at the Microsoft Store in Orlando) had gone well.  This event did not.

MGK felt compelled to take his performance up a notch by jumping onto tables in the store, stomping around and destroying a number of laptops.  The distraught Microsoft Store employees tried to plead with their guest to stop and cut his mic.

But that only egged on and provoked MGK further as shocked/amused onlookers watched and recorded the incident.

Addressing the store employees he offered them a bit of Shakespeare-caliber freestyle poetry, commenting, "Suck my [redacted], I'm up in this mother[redacted]. MGK in this [redacted]. [Redacted] these computers."

In the aftermath Microsoft distanced itself from the incident, saying it didn't hire MGK.  But it did invite him inside.  Microsoft was hoping for attention, clearly, by the guest event, but that hope was soon extinguished when a cocky MGK ditched the script.

...MGK was just upset because when he takes photos of himself in the bathroom mirror with his new iPhone 5, the purple glare from the lights makes him look kinda like a smurf.
