Update: Looks like it's probably a pop-up shop, as seen in Instagrams noticed by The Fader:

Original story: Views from the 6 is about to hit New York City—in some form. Two hours before a 4 p.m. start time, Drake tweeted the following to his 31 million followers:

We're supposed to be still be 11 days out from Drake's seemingly concretely release-dated fourth studio album, but The Boy's always been one for surprises—and we're still not even sure we've heard any songs from the actual album. (Tons of candidates, though, as you'll see/hear in our Complete Guide to Views from the 6.)
