This is late, but better late than never!
On October 24,2012, Kanye West and Samsung teamed up to bring NYC an exclusive free concert event to promote the launch of the Galaxy Note 2. The event was held at Skylight at the Moynihan Station. My friend and I knew we were in for a treat from the moment we arrived and saw the dramatic lighting of the venue. Inside was just as awesome.
Inside, event goers were able to play with the new tablets, munch on caviar, sip whatever you liked from the open bar and schmooze with the best of them. Everyone from fashion big wigs and entertainers to techie's walked around the room anticipating the main event. I even bumped into (literally) Jennifer Hudson, spotted Victor Cruz (no cha cha from him though) and reconnected with the editor of Vibe magazine.
Kanye performed an hour long set, filled with all of my favorite hits and a few monologues. I was very demure for most of the night... until Kanye came on stage. Then I turned into the ultimate rapping machine! I was front row during the show and even got a high-five. Ecstatic!

“Cause when you're a creative, all you wanna do is create. It's not about the money or fame... Cause all that shit is fake!” - Kanye WestI had an AWESOME time. No one could have told me that day that I would have gotten to see my Uncle Ye, but I did... and I loved it!
