[NEWS] Jay-Z's Surprise NYC Concert Axed Because Of Near Riot At Drakes Concert?

Similar to a domino effect, people are going to have to pay for the near riot that occurred at a free concert last week that was to be headlined by Drake. One of those people who are the first to pay is rapper Jay-Z.

Jay-Z was scheduled to throw a surprise concert in NYC "atop the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater" in Midtown Manhattan to kick start the summer season on Monday, June 21st, but city officials have shut down those plans.

Officials from the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting have abruptly canceled plans to grant a permit for the concert. The leaking of information pertaining to the event on Thursday (June 17) ended weeks of negotiations.

This of course comes a week after a crowd became unruly at New York's South Street Seaport.

Just fabulous.

They don't lie when they say that the ignorant ruin it for everybody.

Though it has not been confirmed that the near riot that took place at the seaport had anything to do with the Mayor's office decision, I would be kidding myself if I didn't point out how the scenario fits like a puzzle when it comes to the cancellation.

Other artists such as former Beatle Paul McCartney were granted a permit to organize a concert at the venue in the past, so its not as if it hasn't been done before.

Oh well...
