Drake at Tammany Hall in 2010 (more by Brook Bobbins)
Drake

Earlier this month, Drake wrapped up a tour with Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky, before the latter two made their way to Austin for SXSW.

That tour didn't hit the NYC area but Drake has since announced another slew of North American dates which include PNC Bank Arts Center on June 12 in Holmdel, NJ and Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on June 16 in Wantagh, NY. Like the Kendrick/A$AP tour, most of the new dates, including both NYC area shows, are with a list of on-their-way-to-being-huge rappers: J. Cole, 2 Chainz (who last played NYC when he sold out SOBs in January), Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill, and French Montana. Tickets for the PNC Bank Arts Center show and the Jones Beach show are on sale now.

All dates and the video for "Headlines" below...

I wish waka would do a one off show.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 1:58 PM

so we're just directly linking to the secondary market scalping sites now, BV?

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 2:00 PM

Wait is Jones Beach selling the entire show? It doesn't even exist on TM/LN. Not that i'm interested in going it's just unbelievable that they're making so much off of this haha.

No bigger clown than this guy.

Aubrey sure does have puuurty lips.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 2:09 PM

This is a beyond terrible line-up, and I can only imagine how fuckin annoying the crowds will be at these shows. Ugh.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 2:10 PM

@2PM no, that's just a scalping site. jonesbeach.com isn't legit, idk why bv linked to there.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 2:10 PM

If they got rid of J. Cole & Drake, and put that at S.O.B's, I'd pay $40 to see that.

Funniest thing aside from Drake's face.

Another fact about Drake.

show's gonna get Draked!

Really, a Drake tour is something worth reporting? I just like 80% of my respect for BV.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 4:27 PM

427 pwned himself

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 4:38 PM

Why is BV or any other indie site reporting on Drake? You need to draw a line somewhere, and if your line includes Drake, you should also include Katy Perry and Britney Spears.

Also, why do girls find this guy attractive? His teeth are bigger than Ba Ba Booey's.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 4:40 PM

4:40 - Because Pitchfork says so. Then the sheep follow.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 4:44 PM

@449 you having a small dick is not the fault of the black man. try saying that shit out loud.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 5:14 PM

Drake's beats are kinda gloomy sometimes...and that's a bit diff. Than most other commercial trappers...so hes more.accepted by blogs and what not.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 6:03 PM

Are there any pictures of Aubrey at his Bar Mitzvah floating around the internet?

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 6:05 PM

@603 drakes beats are all made by Jamie XX - that's why he's accepted by blogs. same as when kanye first collaborated with Bon Iver.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 7:24 PM

Kanye was accepted by indie blogs way before Bon Iver. They always gave him props for good lyrics and interesting ideas.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 10:55 PM

..which is also why Drake is accepted as well. I wanted to hate Drake, just for the mere fact that he's a Canadian child actor who decided that he wanted to rap. But his shit is good. End of story.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 10:57 PM

BTW, those Drake shows are not on sale yet. BV needs to set Andrew Sacher straight and tell him not to post bogus links that point to scalper websites.

Posted by Anonymous | March 26, 2012 11:02 PM

His stuff is an awful caricature version of Kanye West and thats pretty bad.

4:40 PM good question.

Posted by Anonymous | March 27, 2012 12:43 AM

THis auto tuned shit is STRAIGHT REATARDED...this blogs gone way down hill supporting this heretical commercial garbage.
