DRAKE SURPRISES FANS AT ‘NWTS’ POP-UP @ TRIED & TRUE CO – 09.19.13

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – Thursday September 19th 2013. SUSPEND Magazine coverage of recording artist Drake surprising his Los Angeles fans who had waited in line to receive a complimentary ‘Nothing Was the Same’ t-shirt at Tried & True Co. in anticipation of the artist’s album due out on Tuesday. Drake had sent out an image on Instagram with three retail locations a few days before. Fans in the area caught wind of the L.A. vintage boutique’s location and waited in line, with some even driving from Colorado to secure an early spot in the queue. Crystal Robles, Co-Owner of Tried & True Co., let in fans in small groups at a time with doors opening at 3pm. Unbeknownst to fans, Drake, fresh from taping an appearance earlier on ‘The Ellen Show,’ and his OVO entourage had arrived to the boutique’s location from a backdoor entrance, where he stayed and took photos with fans for a short duration of time before leaving the Fairfax District. Also in attendance at the ‘NWTS’ pop-up shop was fellow recording artist, Casey Veggies, who joined guests as they posed up against the white wall with ‘NOTHING WAS THE SAME’ plastered in uppercase lettering.
