Bottles popped to kick-off the star-studded event with dinner on Thursday (Sept. 5), nostalgic movie snacks, unlimited popcorn to bring the ambiance of the perfect cinema event. As a horror-film "movie buff" Suss One has thrown similar to the VIP IT screening in the past but according to a close friend of the DJ, this one definitely "hit different."

A guest-list packed with influencers, media moguls and celebs were all in attendance from Love & Hip Hop's Cyn Santana, Sky Landish, and Rich Dollaz to MTV's Wild N' Out Justina Valentine, to comedian Shiggy, and more.

A dimmed-lit setting accompanied by reclined seats, blankets, and pillows to present a modern vibe as guests enjoyed the big screen, as stated in a press release.

"I've never been to something like this before," said Cyn Santana as she walked into the door.

Said to be a refreshing experience for the entertainment industry the premiere event was "one for the books."

Drake To Direct Upcoming ’48 Laws Of Power’ Episode On Quibi

While Drake is behind the mic laying down new verses for upcoming music, the Toronto native will also step behind the camera to direct an episode of an upcoming series. Based on Robert Greene’s best-selling book The 48 Laws of Power, the series of the same name will debut on Quibi in the near future.

Drake’s production company Dreamcrew, and Anonymous Content will helm the executive producing duties. The partnership will also receive executive direction from Dreamcrew’s co-founder Adel “Future” Nur and executive Jason Shrier. “When Drake and I sat down with Robert Greene it was incredibly inspiring,” Future said. “The laws allow for a wide range of dynamic storytelling and Quibi allows us to tell these stories in bite-sized chapters similar to the book.” The entertainment outlet will launch on mobile on Apr. 6.

Greene, who’ll be an executive producer as well, said he’s looking forward to the cinematic adaptation of his 1998 book. The passage outlines the road to success through philosophies taught by Sun-tzu, Machiavelli, and more.

"I have always thought that The 48 Laws of Power would be a perfect fit for a series, bringing to life the timeless Machiavellian game of power as portrayed in the book. But it was not until Drake and Future with Anonymous Content approached me with their unique cinematic approach to the laws that I knew I could join forces with them and go all in for a filmed interpretation of my work," Greene said. Anonymous Content will spearhead the studio.

Although music videos might be the only time you see Drake on the television screen, for now, the 33-year-old has his hands in a couple of TV projects from Netflix to HBO. On the former streaming service, Drake executive produced London's hit series Top Boy. On HBO, the first season of Euphoria, which Drake recently posted a picture of a table read on his Instagram, is headed into its second season. The production is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
