Here's the Scene at the Drake and OVO Pop-Up Shop at ALife in NYC
The line at ALife for the Drake and October's Very Own pop-up shop wrapped around an entire square block. People had gathered for the free T-shirts, hoodies, and long-sleeve tees that would be given away at 1 p.m. "Compliments of the Company." At 2:30 p.m., someone from ALife started walking down the line telling the crowd there was a fight between a man and a woman in front of the store, and that everyone needed to back-up, or else they wouldn't get the "plenty" of shirts left. Another ALife worker came from the opposite direction and started saying, "The Drake thing is off."

About eight cops and four cop cars plus an ambulance showed up, and when cops were asked had what happened, all they said was, "No shirts left." They wouldn't say why an ambulance was there, either.

At that point, the police started ushering kids away. A different cop was asked if there was a fight, and he said, "No fight, just no more shirts." In front of the store, someone wearing an ALife hoodie, who confirmed he worked at the shop but didn't give a name, was asked if a fight had happened. He said, "There was no fight. That was just a rumor. We ran out of shirts and needed to clear the line." Those who were lucky enough to get their hands on Nothing Was the Same gear were very, very happy. Those who weren't able to get anything should probably just check eBay in a few hours.

UPDATE: 

Here's an Instagram video from SlickJackson of a rumored fight that the cops denied happening.
