Baltimore Shuts Down Screening Of Kanye West's "New Slaves"

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.
