Ear Drum Blasting Music Across East River Under Queensboro Bridge Disturbs Roosevelt Island Residents Last Night, Over 100 Complaint Calls To Public Safety - Queensbridge Native Nas & Kanye West Host Listening Party For New Album

About 10 PM last night, Roosevelt Island residents started hearing VERY, VERY, VERY LOUD MUSIC BLASTING through their apartment windows.

 I received this message:

Any idea what the loud music is about?
Over 100 Roosevelt Island residents called the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Public Safety Department to find out what was going on and to complain about the excessive noise.

In response, RIOC sent out this advisory about 11:20 PM
THERE IS A CONCERT IN QUEENSBRIDGE PARK WHICH IS CREATING EXCESSIVE NOISE ON ROOSEVELT ISLAND. NYPD HAS BEEN NOTIFIED AND THEY HAVE ADVISED THAT ANY NOISE COMPLAINTS BE DIRECTED TO 311.
It turns out Rapper Nas hosted a listening party and live streaming show for his new Kanye West produced album Nasir under the Queensboro Bridge between Vernon B'lvd and the East River next to the Queensbridge Housing projects where he grew up.
Today, RIOC Public Information Officer Alonza Robertson reported:
We received more than 100 calls regarding the Queensbridge Park music last night, which was actually a listening party for rapper Nas’ new album that was produced by Kanye West. Nas grew up in the Queensbridge Housing development. We did not receive any prior notice that this was taking place. We did learn that the organizers had a permit for the event...

... There’s not really much residents can do, besides calling 311.
The Twitterverse reports:
Kanye West must like the East River waterfront area. In 2016, he hosted a fashion show at FDR Four Freedoms Park. What's next?
