Kanye West Coachella 2016

Yeezy almost caused a riot.

Kanye West’s impromptu gig in the streets of New York City was cancelled over the weekend due to scenes of chaos among fans.

Yeezy’s initial scheduled performance at Governers Ball festival was cancelled due to bad weather, stopping him from performing his headline set.

However, the rapper then decided to organise a last-minute 2AM show at Webster Hall to make up for the cancellation. 

Thousands of fans flooded the streets to get into the intimate venue, before Kanye later tweeted the show was sold out – despite not selling any tickets.

There was then chaos in the streets, with Kanye being turned away from the venue by police.

However the Mayor Of New York City, Bill de Blasio, has now offered to plan an official block party for Kanye West to benefit kids in the city.

Meanwhile, Kanye West recently premiered the first single from GOOD Music’s upcoming ‘Cruel Winter’ album. 

The track, called ‘Champions (Round & Round)’, features Kanye alongside Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane and more.
