Drake draws huge crowd for surprise popup in Toronto

It's a big week for Toronto. That's because Drake's releasing his highly anticipated album Views From The 6. And to celebrate, the hip hop star surprised everyone with a popup shop on Queen Street West.

He Instagrammed and tweeted about the pop-up's location - outside Tattoo at 567 Queen St. W. - and wrote the would be up and running at 5 p.m.

Naturally, hordes of local fans flocked to Queen West in order to snag some Drake-related merchandise. New York City and Los Angeles have also played host to VIEWS popups.

But the Toronto edition was extra special because Aubrey Graham himself showed up and handed out t-shirts before addressing the crowd.

#VIEWS Pop Up is in full effect right now.

Got to literally rub shoulders with a fellow #6God today. In hindsight I should have wished him a Chag Sameach, but was too starstruck and instead went with "Hey whats up man?" #VIEWS
