If anyone knows how to start off an eventful Monday with a bang, it's Ty Dolla $ign, the newest member to join the Taylor Gang roster. On July 28, Stüssy Toronto held an intimate and exclusive two-hour meet and greet with the California-based rapper. A slew of young fans filled the loft-style space hours prior to his anticipated entrance. Many hoping the entire Taylor Gang clan would make a surprise appearance. One young female who trekked all the way from Oshawa with her uncle and friend immediately starting crying when rumours via Twitter said Wiz Khalifa would be attending the meet and greet session. Needless to say, Ty Dolla $ign showed up with his crew of people and owned the event. He was personable with a strong sense of humor; he conversed with his fans, offered to take many pictures (especially selfies), and signed autographs without hesitation. DJ Lissa Monet was spinning the latest trap music on the one's and two's, while the magic behind pulling the event together alongside the Taylor Gang management was Lola of ILUVLOLA and her team. Lest we not forget Red Bull Canada for supporting an unlimited amount of beverages to keep the crowd going!
All-in-all, it was a hectic yet successful work day and I don't regret one moment of taking part in the overall organization of the event. Besides, amazing complimentary tickets to the Taylor Gang, "Under the Influence Tour" concert at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre were given. Win-win overall. Post to follow.
