Houston Police Shut Down Kanye West Screening of "New Slaves"

by at . Comments

Last week, Kanye West debuted his music video for "New Slaves" by projecting it across the fronts of buildings around the world.

But while Paris, Berlin and Chicago all agreed to be in on the rapper's latest act, Houston apparently had a problem with whatever West had planned for Friday night at the Rothko Chapel.

Local reports confirm that authorities pulled up to that location - after West announced the gathering via Twitter hours before - and threatened to arrest all attendees for trespassing.

The crowd soon dispersed once it became clear that no video would be shown.

West’s new album, “Yeezus,” drops on June 18.

Will he dare mess with Texas in promotion of it? Stay tuned!
