“I feel like this tour is coming at the perfect time,” says Drake. “It’s taking place in the season that we all wait for, We’re outdoors and you’ve got every single artist you wait to hear in the club on one bill…that’s Club Paradise.”

The Los Angeles Times review of Drake’s performance at USC’s Galen Center praised Drake’s “masterful flow and wildly imaginative wordplay,” and The OC Register raved that the LA show was a “near knockout performance” and “only a sampling of the heights Drake seems capable of scaling.”
[photogallerylink id=71326 align=left]TAKE CARE (Young Money / Cash Money / Universal Republic), Drake’s sophomore album was released November 15, 2011 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart with 631,000 copies sold. Acclaimed by fans and critics alike, the album has been praised as one of the best releases of the year, with The New York Times dubbing Drake “hip-hop’s current center of gravity.” The album has since been certified Platinum, having sold over 1.5 million copies in the US.
TAKE CARE follows Drake’s full length album debut, 2010’s THANK ME LATER, which also bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart week of release and has been certified Platinum by the RIAA. The album earned Drake multiple Grammy® nominations, including Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, and Best Rap Solo performance.
