Update: Kanye West's surprise New York City show at Webster Hall, scheduled for 2:00 a.m., was cancelled in the early hours of Monday morning, as the show announcement was met with thousands of fans trying to pour into the Manhattan venue. West did show up at Webster Hall, but never made it inside.

Read Fuse's full on-the-scene report.

Original Story: A little bit—well, a lot—of rain can't bring Kanye West down! According to Virgil Abloh, the rapper will put on a last-minute performance in NYC tonight after his Governors Ball 2016 headlining set was cancelled due to inclement weather.

Abloh's original Instagram announcement had the caption, “Summer Jam now. We’re doing PABLO at 2 am in Manhattan. Sorting out where now." But he recently updated it to simply "Summer Jam now":

West is currently rocking Hot 97's Summer Jam with another surprise performance alongside his G.O.O.D. Music family, including Big Sean, Desiigner and Pusha T. Click here to watch the live stream over at Miss Info. 

Earlier today, Hot 97 cancelled their festival stage in the midst of the pending storm. But their main stage was unaffected. We will continue to update if more details surface about Kanye's rumored late-night performance.
