Impromptu Rapper Pop-Ups

Drake's New York Pop-Up Store Amassed Tons of Fans Despite Short Notice

— August 8, 2016 — Pop Culture
Drake recently began ending off the summer of 2016 with a New York pop-up shop that features extra-exclusive merchandise from his latest 'Views' tour.

Though it's not much of a surprise that the rapper's fans would be eager to participate in the event, the fact that they had less than 24-hours notice of its occurrence makes the success of the New York pop-up shop that much more impressive. Once hearing about the event, fans from the area grabbed lawn chairs and camped outside of its location so that they could be the some of the firsts to get their hands on the unique graphic apparel and accessories.

Despite the competitive lineups outside, it's reported that Drake fans were highly respectful of one another, with each brought together by their common interests and the laid-back atmosphere the youthful crowd helped to generate.
