Drake T-Shirt Giveaway Shut Down by NYPD After Fights Break Out

Remember this shirt Drake was rocking at the MTV Video Music Awards last month? In honor of his album release next week, the rapper offered free shirts featuring his ‘Nothing Was the Same’ album title at pop shops in Los Angeles, New York City and his hometown of Toronto. Although it seemed like a great idea for the fans, things got out of hand at the Big Apple location yesterday (Sept. 19).

Hundreds of fans lined up at the Alife store in the city’s Lower East Side way before the doors were opened. And although the area was very packed — hundreds of people lines the streets — things seemed fine until bystanders claimed that there was a fight that broke out and an alleged stabbing, DNAinfo New York reports. Police were called onto the scene, but found no evidence of a stabbing or scuffle.

And due to the commotion, the police shut the event down. Alife will resume business as usual today (Sept. 20).

This isn’t the first time that a Drake event caused a ruckus in New York. Police were called in to shut down a free concert the rapper was scheduled to perform at South Street Seaport. Fans started rioting after it was announced that the ‘Too Much’ rhymer was 90 minutes late.

After these two incidents, Drizzy may need to think twice before hosting another free event in New York City — or just hire more security.
