As any party person in New York will tell you, there are plenty of hoops to jump through when it comes to attending events hosted by mere B-list celebrities. So you could imagine just how difficult it was for attendees of last night's super exclusive listening party for Nas's new album to simply breathe the same air as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
The power couple kept the details top secret, and even those who somehow got confirmed were sent to pickup points rather than the actual site of the bash. According to one of our sources (hi, @nydoorman!), shuttles never arrived at the allocated spots, and everyone waiting there was told to go home.
But true insiders know better. It was time to get resourceful.
After scouring Twitter for the exact location, a horde of hip hop superfans ordered Ubers and raced their way to the Queensboro bridge, where, in a lot under lock down by the NYPD, Kim, Kanye, Nas, La La and more were letting loose to the tunes of the new Yeezy-produced album. Kim K. & Ko. (Jonathan Cheban and La La Anthony) even hopped onto the back of an ARMY truck for an impromptu photo shoot, as one does.
But even then, gaining access was no easy task. PR people had been replaced with straight-up police officers, and there was no longer a list to check names off of. Thankfully, our insider happened to bump into Chris Rock on his way out, who, very graciously, gave him his VIP pass. Again, as one does.
These were the Insta stories that followed:
