Here’s What Went Down at Kanye West’s ‘Ye’ Events in Chicago and Miami
Kanye West's Ye listening party in Wyoming may have only been open to celebrities and industry insiders, but the "Yikes" rapper decided to give his fans a chance to attend their own Ye parties. On Wednesday night (June 6), Yeezy held "Project Wyoming" events in Chicago and Miami.
Although the Chicago party was listed as taking place in the Windy City, the event actually took place Kuipers Family Farm in Maple Park, Ill., 55 miles outside of Chicago. The party featured a bonfire, DJs playing new music and the chance for attendees to purchase exclusive merchandise.
While the Chicago event appeared to be a good time for attendees, thanks to its rural setting which matched the vibes of Jackson Hole, Wyo., the Miami event was apparently not as fun. According to a June 7 report from the Miami New Times, the event was actually held in a vacant parking lot instead of the old RC Cola Plant in Wynwood, Fla.
Although the Miami party was emceed by Yes Julz, Kanye's music wasn't played until about an hour in to the party, and the exclusive merchandise didn't arrive until nearly three hours later. On top of that, it also rained, leaving attendees to look for shelter under awnings or stand in line for merch while holding umbrellas.
The next "Project Wyoming" party will take place on Thursday (June 7) in Brooklyn. Doors for the event open at 7 p.m.
