Kanye West Hits the Stage for Lil Wayne's First NYC Performance
Date: July 2007
Wayne's popularity was at an all time high, and it culminated in his debut NYC show at Beacon Theater. It was there that Kanye showed up as a surprise guest, and got the crowd even more amped by performing hits of his own.
But the night took a turn for the worse. Wayne had a run-in with authorities when they searched his tour bus after smelling marijuana and found a .40 caliber pistol. He was arrested for gun possession, and would later plead guilty for the incident in 2009.
