Everyone including Swizz Beatz, Rick Ross, Cam’ron, French Montana, Travi$ Scott, and Kid Ink stopped by to get a quick shave, hang out and support the launch of Reebok Classic’s Retro Shop. Reebok also had surprise guests stop by to say hi, including T.I., Bow Wow, Jim Jones, Paul Wall, Stevie Williams and Slow Bucks.

With DJ Drama spinning in the Retro Shop, the guys freestyled a bit with mics in hand and addressed the crowd outside the booth, causing a huge commotion on the floor. When Reebok Classic presents, traffic stops…
