Jay Z To Play Free Concert in Times Square on July 8th

UPDATE: Concert is cancelled

According to the NY Post:

The city suddenly yanked approval for the mega-rapper’s planned concert Monday atop the Midtown marquee for the “Late Show with David Letterman,’’ sources said.

“The mayor’s office approved it, and then just like that, it got denied,” one police source told The Post yesterday.


According to the NY Post, Jay-Z is planning on a surprise performance this July 8th in NY's famous Times Square.

Said to take place atop the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater the rapper is waiting for the approval by the city for this "Late Show With David Letterman" performance.

"They’ll have to shut down Broadway around the Letterman building. They’ll have to have a strong police presence. It’s going to be chaos with so many fans" a law-enforcement source said.

Don't forget that the city killed the same plan in the summer of 2010 over concerns about crowd control and security though. Jay-Z and Eminem then moved their concert to the theater’s rooftop, where permits weren’t required, after the city put the kibosh on their initial plan.

Question; why is this site not running the 50 cent domestic abuse story? I just came from AllHipHop - you know the unbiased hip hop site - and they have a story posted about 50 abusing a woman who says she is his childs' mother. It's quite the interesting piece if you guys care to check it out. Giving the seriousness of these accusations shouldn't the "reporters" employed by this site feel obligated to report news regaurding a hip hop artist? That is the point of a site like this is it not?
