Angry Duck Fans are calling the NYPD over what appeared to be electronic surveillance at his sold-out Apollo Theater show, and after a clip of officers recording ticket holders went viral, cops say it’s not. it seems.
NYPD law enforcement sources say TMZ hip hop video shows officers outside the Apollo recording concertgoers as they left the theater. We’re told the video was filmed for a social media post to show how police work with venue security to keep concerts safe for fans.
To angry fans, it felt like blatant profiling and surveillance intended to capture and save fan footage of Drake, but the NYPD scoffs at that idea. Our sources say the community affairs officers seen on the video cameras are not affiliated with the detective bureau and do not investigate serious crimes.
There are also dozens of city surveillance cameras around the Apollo… and throughout the city, for that matter. The reality of life in the 21st century is that we are all being recorded throughout the day without even knowing it.
Drake was uptown for 2 nights, and inside the venue, a brief but tense moment occurred during the second show when a fan fell over the mezzanine balcony… towards the crowd below.
The show was halted briefly for around 15 minutes when a spokesperson announced that the fan was not seriously injured and that the show would go on.
Hometown Heroes Cam’ron, jimen jones Y juelz santana of Dipset and a tour with his “Her Loss” co-star 21 savage was the subject of ridicule.
Other than the balcony jumper, everyone left the scene safely, which police say was their goal all along.
