Rolling Quite The events in New York this year have been fairly noteworthy, including a surprise appearance by Kanye West during Playboi Carti’s set, Lil Tjay’s first performance following his shooting, and the NYPD’s exclusion of New York drill rappers from the roster. But the weekend’s headlining act, New York native A$AP Rocky, was one of the most eagerly awaited performances.
Despite being high-octane and including guests Glorilla and French Montana, his concert on Saturday was cut short after only 30 minutes. The concert’s quick halt was caused by Rocky’s tardy arrival and a severe curfew enforced by police, and the “F**kin’ Problems” rapper apologized for the event on Twitter.
“I am so hurt right now!” wrote the Harlem rapper. “Last night was supposed to be a turning point in my live shows from the old to new! I will take full responsibility for the circumstances of what led to last night’s show being everything it was and everything it wasn’t.”
“I also want to acknowledge,” he continued, “that even though I prepared the best show for my fans, detail for detail, over the course of MONTHS… I was unfortunately not able to bring my vision to fruition and I’m hurt about that and I want to apologize to all my fans and continued supporters, and thank y’all for showing up for me regardless!! A$AP4EVA.”

Even though he only played nine songs and appeared quite disappointed in the concert clip, he still put on a wild performance with exciting moments and even dove into the crowd. Get in on the full performance in the clip below.
