Police officers shut down rapper Machine Gun Kelly's show in Georgia on Friday night (28Sep12) after he allegedly failed to cooperate with event organisers.

The rising star, real name Richard Colson Baker, was hired by bosses at The Source Magazine to deliver a short set at the Microsoft store in Atlanta's Lenox Mall to celebrate the release of their latest issue.

However things got out of hand when the 22 year old, performing his track Hold On (Shut Up), refused to come down off a table displaying expensive laptops, despite pleas from organisers and security officials.

According to video footage, obtained by HipHopWired.com, law enforcement chiefs were subsequently forced to pull the plug on his gig.
