Last night in Soho, an enormous crowd came out to support the known event producer Brianni Taylor also known as Brianni T. She was the gracious host who put together the amazing event that she titled “Views Exhibit”. Brianni Taylor held a Kayne West “Life Of Pablo” themed show in May and from my understanding it was a complete success. This art exhibit was to showcase not only the artistry and talent of the featured creators but to show the versatility behind the main who inspired the exhibit. That man would be Drake.
Throughout the course of his career Drake has pleased us with numerous songs, features, albums, and unforgettable melodies that demonstrates his impact on the music industry. Let’s not forget about his unmatched sense of style and fashion which puts him in a lane of his own. From his abrasive and arrogant yelling on tracks such as “Know Yourself” and “Worst Behavior” to his soft melodic voice on tracks like “Find Your Love”, Drake has proved to be one of the most creative and dynamic artists in the game. Through the Views Exhibit, a bunch of visual artists were able to capture some of the greatest moments in Drake’s career through paintings and other works such as props, apparel, and accessories.
There were 3 sessions to the exhibit. Each session lasted about an hour and a half to two hours long. This gave the exhibit a chance to be seen by more crowds of people and it became a flexibility factor for those who couldn’t make a particular session. The drinks were completely on the house! The sponsor of the alcohol was D’usse and it’s no surprise that each drink was inspired by a Drake song. You had the Controlla, the Hype, and the Pop Style. At the end of every session there was the Drake Karaoke. Any attendee who wanted to sign up for Drake Karaoke had to perform in front of the huge Drake fans and rap/sing a Drake classic. I even took a chance at the Drake Karaoke and performed “Headlines”. The winners got free tickets to Drake & Future’s Summer Sixteen Tour. This was an excellent touch to the Views Exhibit. It wouldn’t be fully “Drake themed” if you couldn’t witness the best Drake impersonator out of the crowd.
All in all, this exhibit will be one to talk about for a while. Brianni says she has more to come and some big plans for her next show. Thanks to Brianni T and the entire “Brianni T Presents” team!
