Baltimore Shuts Down Screening Of Kanye West's

The city of Baltimore claims that Kanye West didn't have the proper permits for the screening of his newest song.

Kanye West's multi-city screenings of his song "New Slaves" on buildings across the United States hit another hitch.

Two days after the Houston Police Department ended multiple screenings of the video, The Baltimore Sun reports that the city of Baltimore canceled the event.

Baltimore Police Department page announced the cancellation via Twitter:

Reports indicate that the cancellation was on the city's part because the organizers did not have proper permits, citing the use of electricity and the anticipated crowds.

Still, a projection may have occurred elsewhere in the city, per Def Jam's Twitter account:

Baltimore and Houston were both to be part of a second wave of screenings after Kanye debuted the track on 66 buildings around the US.

    Be ready for the collaboration of a life time, which will change hiphop as we know it. Murder Inc + MMG are making a super-group collaboration. Thats means Meek Mill, Gunplay, Rick Rozzay and Wale will be teaming up with the hardcore niggaz from murder inc Ja Rule, Ashanti etc. My homey down miami is a hardcore blood nigga who knows Rick Ross personally and ross told him at an exclusive bloods party at his private home by the water. The game is about to change my niggas its Murda Meets Bawse!

      Almost every rapper said they sold their soul. It's fucking metaphor dummy. Eminem said it many times "i sold my soul to the devil ill never get it back". 2pac said it multiple times "selling my soul for material wishes, fast cars and bitches" you guys are so ignorant and bias you think that's some some new thing or something. idiots
