Surprise Kanye Concert Sparks Chaos in NYC's East Village

Kanye attempting to get into Webster Hall

More than 4,000 Yeezus fans swarmed New York's East Village and Webster Hall to get a glimpse of Kanye after he announced a surprise 2am concert.

West was in NYC to headline the Governors Ball but it was cancelled because of the weather. To make use of his time, he made a guest appearance at Hot 97's Summer Jam and performed alongside Big Sean and Pusha T and even performed  his new song Champions from the G.O.O.D Music collaborative Cruel Winter.

To keep the party going, a tweet went out about a pop-up concert at Webster Hall at 2am. When news broke, fans were lining up around the block to snag a ticket to see the show. Keep in mind, Webster Hall only holds 1,500 people. 90 minutes before showtime the line was 2 blocks away!
Twitter was blowing up by the amount of people starting to gather.
Here are some tweets Gothamist found:

As chaos reigned, wifey Kim Kardashian West snap chatted Ye reaching out to someone asking NYC's mayor de Blasio to block off some streets and allow for this party.
By 1am Yeezy announced the concert had been sold out, and then Webster Hall tweeted this:

So, all in all the show was cancelled due to public safety concerns. Yeezy did attempt to pull up and try to make this happen, but alas it couldn't.
Regardless of the mob, the chaos, people getting hurt and climbing scaffoldings in NYC, West's squad couldn't believe the madness praising the rapper.

Damn, no one man should have all that power.
