The "I Like It Like This", presented by S|2 in collaboration with Drake, held a celebration opening of influential Contemporary black American artists on May 7th. Grammy winning artist Drake provided musical curation by selecting songs to accompany highlighted works in the selling exhibition at the art gallery at Sothebys in New York City, which is now open to the public until June 12th. When you stop by the York Avenue galleries, you can listen to Drake’s song selections at Beats by Dre™ sound stations & experience the dialogue surrounding the overlap of these identities and the ways in which they bolster, challenge and inspire one another.
The event drew a mass crowd of artists, musicians, art-lovers and creative minds alike. DJ'd by NYC DJ Va$htie, the ambiance for the event was set for an eventful time. Among the attendees to this exclusive event included rapper Drake, music producer Swizz Beatz and ex-NFL player and TV hose, Michael Strahan. Check out some of the unique art pieces and other photos from the event below.
