Drake Kicks Off 2012 in Times Square

Drake and Carson Daly

While his YMCMB sister Nicki Minaj was on ABC, Drake was bidding adieu to 2011 on “NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly.” Perched high above Times Square, Drizzy had New York City rocking to his Take Care hits including “Make Me Proud,” “The Motto,” and “Headlines,” sharing the surreal experience with host Carson Daly.

“It’s absolutely incredible. I’ve never really experienced anything like it,” said the Canadian rapper, who kept warm in his $5,000 OVO x Canada Goose jacket. “All these wonderful people and fans and music is in the air. It’s a new year, I’m excited for 2012.”

During the interview, Drake confirmed that he’s already plotting his third album. “Me and 40 have been hard at work just trying to figure out where to take the next one,” he revealed.

Watch October’s Very Own celebrate the new year in the Big Apple.

    Drake is fake. I’m not hating, I’m just being real. Ya don’t believe me, then it said his sister Nicki is performing in ABC, while he’s performing with their competitor NBC. That ain’t real. All in all, drake, nicki, lil wayne, kim kardashian, justin beiber are fake…real people know what’s up and know that these clowns are nowhere near tupac, biggie, and michael jackson. I’m not hating, I’m happy for these fakes and that they made it big and have money (even tho they had to sell their soul to do that).
