eyeYeyeYeye: Thank Him Later

In case you didn't know this, you can't take certain people anywhere. It's a shame - but the cliche remains, and in most cases it's true. Here I was yesterday seriously contemplating going to the FREE Drake concert at South Street Seaport in NYC. His first official album, Thank Me Later dropped and it was a big deal. First and foremost, I'm a fan - I think dude is really talented and I like his approach, you know? More than anything I respect that he is genuine, and he is not trying to be something other than what he is; and that is ALWAYS ACCEPTABLE.

I changed my mind when I recieved a call at around 5pm. Being told that Seaport was looking like a zoo already, and curtain was not until 6pm, make my decision easy. Something said don't do it, and I'm glad yet regretful at the same time.

The regret is that my city couldn't host something like this in a fun manner. A free concert from one of the hottest buzzin' artists out right now? Unmentionable. I'm not here to knock anyone, cause I don't know what sparked the melee, but it was unnecessary and it will probably messed up a lot of things to come. I used to sit back often and wonder why more artists didn't do things like this. All we've ever had on the down-to-earth tip is Summer Stage - but now I see why. Some things are inevitable. And we wonder why Bill 'O Reilly is rich. You do the math.

Here is a video of the madness:

    Soooo embarrassing...especially since I'm born and raised here. I was there after this occurred, and was seriously disappointed, because some bad ass kids messed it up for everyone. Let's see how many free concerts we have now...
