Beast Coast – the New York hip hop collective comprised of Pro Era members (Joey Bada$$, Nyck Caution, CJ Fly, Powers Pleasant and Kirk Knight), Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers – are in the middle of their “Escape From New York” tour.
They explained that their show canceled due to two mass shooting threats at Freedom Hill. Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said:
“Obviously in today’s world and thing going on recently, we have to take each threat seriously. We were going to put additional deputies and undercover officers in and around the venue, and later this afternoon I found out the event was canceled.”
They also explained that in a statement they said:
“Due to unforeseen circumstances tonight’s beast coast ‘Escape From New York Tour’ is canceled — tickets can be refunded at point of purchase — tickets purchased by phone or online will be automatically refunded.
They were just provided with the information that was currently available. Again, these were two separate threats that came in and both were being investigated.”
