I Went to Drake's 'Views' Pop-Up Shop & All I Got Was a (Free) T-Shirt

FUSE TV - I Went to Drake's 'Views' Pop-Up Shop & All I Got Was a (Free) T-Shirt

Whether you like him or not, one cannot deny the cultural impact of Drake. So when the 6 God tweeted an ominous announcement about an NYC event happening at 4 p.m. on Monday (Apr. 18), I scarfed down my bento box, threw on some red lipstick (one of my major keys to success) and hopped in a Lyft to head straight toward 136 Bowery.

I arrived around 3:30 p.m. and was met with one of the most intense lines of people I've ever seen; at least eight blocks of people were waiting patiently, and I had to join them. But I stuck it out for two hours just to say that I survived the Drake pop-up shop experience. And hey, at least I got a cute (and free) t-shirt? Check out some of my observations below:
