Looks like the Houston Police Department REFUSED to embrace the gospel according to Yeezus!
Kanye West has been hard at work premiering music from his upcoming album in a pretty unique way - his new single, New Slaves, premiered via videos projected on the sides of buildings on various cities across the world last week, and last night, he announced that he would be doing it again in NEW locations…including the Rothko Chapel, Central Library downtown and the George Bush Monument in Houston, TX!
However, local fans of the rapper ended up with nothing but disappointment when authorities arrived at Rothko and demanded that everyone there had to leave or be ARRESTED for trespassing!
Furthermore, folks who went to the library were told that the show would be rescheduled for later in the evening due to “technical difficulties,” but eventually, police shut everything down, there too!
And according to a local fan who tried the Bush memorial:
“All we saw were the sprinklers come on and obnoxious people screaming Kanye threats.”
Lame! You'd think with a project this ambitious, Kanye would have made sure that he had the proper permits and agreements in place to guarantee these kind of problems would be avoided!
