Drake only announced his “Summer Sixteen” New York City pop-up Wednesday, but that was more than enough time for Drizzy’s fans to take the day off, cancel their plans, put together a scheme to get out of school or, for the unemployed, you know, set their alarm a little earlier than normal.
The pop-up shop opened at 11 a.m. Thursday and there was already a huge line all the way down the block of people ready to shop Drizzy’s merch at that time.
If you weren’t able to get tickets to Drake and Future’s run of New York dates, the pop-up will at least offer fans a piece of memorabilia (Sorry, to keep everyone hyped, no photos were allowed inside the shop). Drake is selling the merch that will be available at Madison Square Garden along with items exclusive to the pop-up with about 15 to 20 pieces in total. New items include long-sleeve T-shirts printed with phrases like “Child’s Play,” “Don’t Make Me Give You Back to the Hood…” and others are dedicated to some of Drizzy’s most popular songs, like “One Dance,” and “Controlla.”
“One Dance” tees come in green and red with the lyrics “Strength and Guidance” on the back. Black “Controlla” tees have “Summer Sixteen” written out on the back. Drake also added to the “Revenge” merchandise we’ve seen available at his tour stops. There’s now a “Revenge” Coach’s jacket and button-up baseball jersey that will set you back $200. There’s also snapbacks and dad hats available.
Drake’s “Summer Sixteen” pop-up will be open at 208 Bowery, New York City, from Thursday, Aug. 4, to Sunday, Aug. 7. Drizzy’s tourmate Future is also hosting a pop-up shop in New York City this week, too.
