Show at 2am SOLD OUT
— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) June 6, 2016
And jus like that, more than 4,000 fans crowded the streets.
Due to inclement weather, Kanye was forced to cancel his headlining set at the Governors Ball. Yeezy instead joined his G.O.O.D Music family on stage at Hot 97’s Summer Jam, where things got even more interesting. Kanye teased a 2am surprise show at Webster Hall & led to him then ultimately, shutting down NYC.

Thousands of fans shoving their way around, jumping on cars in excitement covered the streets for about two blocks. According to the New York Daily News, one person was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Never slipping on her wifey role, Kim K. captured Kanye via Snapchat, trying to get the Governor on the phone to make the show happen.
