Desiigner, Joey Badass, Dave East and More Celebrate Adidas Flagship Opening in New York
Adidas' new Flagship store in New York City officially opens on Thursday (Dec. 1) at 11 a.m. Ahead of the opening, Adidas brought in some media and friends of the brand to get a special preview of the new store. Check out pictures from the event above and below.
The 2016 XXL Freshman class was well represented at the event as Desiigner and Dave East were on hand for the festivities. Joey Bada$$, DJ Esco and DJ Clark Kent were among the other notable hip-hop artists in attendance for last night's (Nov. 29) celebration.
The new location features a football stadium-inspired design with four stories and over 45,000 square feet of space. The Flagship store is located on the corner of 5th Avenue and 46th Street.
Desiigner's appearance at the preview event could be considered a personal celebration. The Brooklyn MC got some great news on Tuesday (Nov. 29) when all of the gun and drug charges against him got dropped. The District Attorney moved to seal the case and dismiss the charges.
The "Panda" rapper was arrested back in September and charged with intent to sell, menacing and possession of a loaded gun. It was later revealed that there was no gun in Desiigner's vehicle, and the drugs were prescription steroids.
Desiigner wasn’t in court when his charges were officially dropped, but he was represented by his lawyers, Ian Niles and Stacey Richman. “We’re happy he’s been exonerated… and happy with the investigation from the D.A,” Desiigner's representation told TMZ. Now that Desiigner is in the clear, he can focus on finishing up his debut album.
