Last week Kanye West held the listening party for his new album “Ye” at the resort in Jackson Hole, WY, where he recorded his album as well as five other G.O.O.D. Music artists, including Pusha T’s infamous Drake diss track “The Story of Adidon”.
Now, because of Kanye, hip hop functions have been banned from the resort. Jane Golliher, who owns and operates the Diamond Cross Ranch in Moran, Wyoming says hosting Kanye’s party was great exposure for the business, but admits it was the “most confusing” event they’ve ever handled. Golliher says the entire event was a great “learning curve,” especially when it comes to music. Kanye’s planning team originally had the party set for inside, but plans were changing “every 30 minutes” and the ultimate location ended up being outside where the sound was so loud it triggered immediate complaints from the ranch’s neighbors.
Golliher says her neighbors — mainly other lodges — immediately complained about the deafening noise, and she had to send employees running down to smooth things over to avoid complaints with the county. Going forward, Golliher says there will be “no more rappers” at the ranch, however she is open to doing an event with “good music,” and probably only a “day concert.”
