Drake surprised the sh*t out of everyone yesterday–including the NYPD and Kanye West’s security, which became apparent after he was booted from the VIP area of Kanye’s free concert in the Flatiron District.
Towards the end of the show, the NYPD decided to clear the lane and told Drake’s people (and me by proxy), that we all had to move. His posse, unable to convince the officers of their significance, was told to get on the other side of the barriers. They begrudgingly complied and again I tagged along.
To add to the irony, this was all happening just as the surprise release of his new album was sending shockwaves through the internet. The name generating some of the night’s biggest music news was floating around in a sea of strangers, unable to get the attention of anyone remotely powerful. The Midas of chart-topping, catchy hip-hop was back at the bottom with the rest of us. And his whole team was f*cking there. [source]
