Jay-Z Gets No Love From The Empire State!

Boo! We bet this would have been a really great show!

Jay-Z was slated to perform above the marquee at the Ed Sullivan Theater for The Late Show With David Letterman Monday, but the Mayor is having the show cancel the gig.

On the heels of the chaos that was Drake's free gig at South Street Seaport, the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting is fearful to let the show proceed as planned. Originally, the show was meant to be a secret, but word leaked yesterday and the Mayor's office is using that as the excuse to cancel the performance. A rep from the office said:

"Many permits are granted on the condition that the event is not made public beforehand for capacity and security reasons. This event was made public."

Damn! Jay would have totally killed it too!

Thanks a lot, Drake! (And Hanson too!!!)

    Ha, ha! Serves him right for championing a racist president.

    Bloomberg is actually right with what happened the other dayit would be ten times worse with Jay-Z cause he has that many more fans. They would not be able to control the crowd what so ever.. so good call even though it sucks for our city!! We still love you Jay!!

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – although i don't agree that Obama is a racist, i really wish he was…it would serve white people right to have to deal with a little reverse racism and to constantly fear having a racist black man as the most powerful individual in the world (i'm white by the way)….oh and don't be bringing up anything about affirmative action because that's total crap and not reverse racism

    i still love you and your comments though…..you're one of my favorites on here!!

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – STFU how is obama racist????? he's fucking black and white. God some people sound soo stupid, i mean so he fucking biracial get over it you ignorant hag.

    Re: umyeah – Are you serious? He attended a racist church for 20 years.

    Re: DaRockz – No, I will not shut the fuck up, you cocksmoking dumb fuck. Are you so fucking stupid that you think because Barry is biracial that he somehow isn't racist? He attended a racist church for over 20 years. The racist leader of the aforementioned church, Rev. Wright, was a close, personal friend of Barry and even gave him the the title for his stupid fucking book. Barry is the EXACT SAME as Hitler. They make great speeches and they hate half of themselves and anyone like that half they hate. The only thing that is yet to be determined is if Barry will destroy our country like Hitler did Germany. Please explain his 20 year attendance at that church.

    Re: fer cyccone – LOL, yeah, payback is a bitch and the asshole Democrats will find that out in November. Their standing ovation for Calderon will haunt them for years. If you want to know my POV of America then I must begin that I love America. We have more freedom here than anywhere else and I'm so blessed to have been born here. Both political parties are corrupt but the Democrats are the worst. Chris Rock said it best "Both parties say they want to help poor people but the Democrats say WE are the poor people." I can't tell a lie: most people think Democrats care more about poor people than Republicans do but it's not true. They just placate to them to try to get votes. That's why they want amnesty for illegal immigrants. They want their votes but they also want the illegals' cheap labor and don't care that they are indentured servants. The US is very divided right now mostly due to Barry Obama. There are racial and political divisions but we don't have the guts to address the racial divisions like we do the political divisions. As for the good in America, well, we have a strong work ethic and we are always trying to do the right thing. We are a family that fights a lot but we come together when the shit hits the fan. Hope this helped :)

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – First off you sound like you are drinking from the same bottle that Palin and Bush is. How in the world did you come up with him being racist?????O_O Maybe i didnt get it but he's never said he hates whites, black, latinos, asians etc….. You are crazy because i dont see how you came up with that. Obama has public said he doesnt agree with the shit his church said. Stop tryin to cause shit thats not even reality, you sound like sara palin with her delusional shit, "i can see Russia from my house". Not that im sayin its a good thing, so what if he was racist? i mean im a white man and i think some racist white people desrve alil pay back from obama. Do a favor look up info and slavary and tell me if thats REal racism compared to the foolishness your talkin bout.

    Re: DaRockz – You are pathetic and I'm done with you.

    Re: DaRockz

    you don't need to say anything, your actions will speak for you, and if he didn't agree with his church's dogmas, why he kept going there for 20 years ? when you don't like or don't agree with something, you just need to let it go….now i realize that i have a lot to study this weekend, not just about the politic history of my country(there's some heavy crazy chiz surrounding brazil's government…so juicy and misteriouzzzz)but also about U.S, and germany(since i'm half german and someday i'll live there…eventually



  14. 14

    Idk if obama is racists but I do blv the ppl in power are racsits againts every fucking body.



  15. 15

    Yeah im pathetic because what i said is the tuth i shut you the fuck up. You can NEVER compare the crap of the so called racism you claim obama has. I mean against which race? White, black,asian, latino which one????? You cant even tell me because you are full of shit. Its ovious your an republican, which is ok, but you are bias, you hate obama, obamais a loser, oh obama this, obama that. Now im not sayin obama has done alot yet, but he damn sure is smart enough to do it. Bush came off like he was retarded, and people including other republicans pointed it out. Say what you want about obama but as a WHITE man i give props to him, he ran for president in a time where you will be eaten alive by haters, but he still did it any ways. You can go ahead an call him raicst, or whateve but one thing you can say is he's alot smarter tha bush and he's still determined to fight fo his country! suck on that you ignorant Palin lover



  16. 16

    how could you say this? after experiencing racism why would you want anyone to as well? you must be evil right?if you believe in karma (which i always do) u will get this negativity back, 10x stronger



  17. 17

    completely agree with you

    Mayor Bloomberg is being foolish here.
    NYC has mistreated Black audiences since the Diana Ross Central Park concert ended with a few minor incidents. Now, Summer Stage and other musical events avoid artists who are popular among young, Black audiences.
    Thirty years later, and NYers are still dealing with this crap.
    If Paul McCartney can perform at this same venue without any incidents, then Jay-Z, an AMERICAN, should have the same opportunity.



  19. 19

    Re: caroaber – It's not about the race of the performer, it is about the actions of their audience. Paul McCartney was able to play that venue because overall his audience is much more subdued. They are not going to riot and they are not going to climb on top of roofs to get a better view. And by the way, the concert with Drake that was canceled, and basically is the reason behind Jay-Z cancellation, also featured Hanson, a white band.

    Am I the only one who is sick and tired of this guy? I'm over the same old themes and lyrics spun into new songs. And if I hear New York one more time out in the club, I'm going to projectile vomit. Wasn't Jay-Z supposed to retire years ago????



  21. 21

    OLD NEWS…OLD JAY Z.
    HE AND BEYONCE NOW THINK THEY ARE KING AND QUEEN BUT …..I DON'T.



  22. 22

    Good. I have been less than impressed with his live tv performances. There is such a thing as rapping in tune and many of the rappers just don't have good tonal quality, and sadly, Jay Z is one of them.
