New Yorkers Sum Up Kanye West’s Visit to the City in One Word
Thursday (Feb. 12) was a busy day for Kanye West.
After launching his first-ever clothing line with Adidas and debuting his brand new track, 'Wolves,' Kanye turned New York City’s Madison Square Park into his own personal concert venue, giving New Yorkers a free show to kick off the NBA All-Star weekend. Dubbed the Roc City Classic, the event was expected to draw in 10,000 people, but according to CBS, “everyone got in with room to spare.”
Madison Square Park is not always host to loud and boisterous concerts, and residents voiced their concerns in a number of ways, including sending a massive letter (written by the local community board) to Mayor Bill de Blasio.
But no complaint was summed up and delivered better by anyone than one office building in the neighborhood. If you haven’t put two and two together yet, the photo at the top of this story was taken in the Flatiron District; as one office overlooked the concert, a few Beck fans decided to show their support for the recent Album of the Year Grammy winner.
We'll rest a little easier this weekend knowing Kanye had to perform a 45-minute set while staring at "BECK!" the entire time.
