Paradise is coming!!!

Drake's 'Club Paradise' Tour is about to land in Austin. Tickets are still available through secondary outlets.

The anticipation grows more and more every hour, as the day that many have been looking forward to, comes near. The rising young rapper is making his way to the Erwin Center and no one can begin to imagine how amazing this night will be.

The Canadian rapper and actor Drake ( ), born Aubrey Drake Graham, became famous for the role he played in the TeenNick show Degrassi: The Next Generation, as the physically disabled character Jimmy Brooks. He rapped multiple times on the show and blew away fans watching everywhere. The song that started it all as he performed on Degrassi was ‘Tell Me Lies’.

Rumors began to spread through the states that the young star was discovered and was signed to Young Money Entertainment, but soon he came out to dismiss these rumors and confirm that he is working with Y.M.E and is currently signed to Cash Money and Universal Motown Records. His music career took off with the first mixtape he released in 2006 titled 'Room for Improvement'. During his early music career you only caught glimpses of this young mc as he appeared in multiple songs with the members of Young Money.
Drake and Niki Minaj were featured together in ‘Moment 4 Life’.

Now with his upcoming tour "Club Paradise", this young artist has had another huge year with the release of his second album, 'Take Care', in late 2011. It was the perfect way to start up the hype for what was to come. The single, 'Club Paradise', was produced by Noah “40” Shebib and is all about a strip club in Toronto. So will the show live up to the paradise standard? 'Take Care' is gonna be a GREAT album. Leaving everyone on the edge of their seats, Drake has everyone guessing what his next move is gonna be.  This is definitely one of the most talked about tours in 2011 and 2012.

As a true Drake fan, I have not been more excited for anything he has done besides this tour. Everyone be ready and get prepared because Drizzy Drake is coming to Austin with highly touted openers A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar. 'Club Paradise' is going to turn the city upside down.
