Drake is headed to Brooklyn. The Canadian rapper has been added to the lineup for this weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Drizzy will take the stage at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Sunday, Aug. 25, to perform his anthem “Started From the Bottom” for the first time on live television.

The video for the song, which will appear on his upcoming album Nothing Was the Same, is nominated for two VMAs including Best Hip Hop Video and Best Direction.

“Excited to announce I’ll be performing at the 2013 @MTV VMA’s!!! #Brooklyn #OVO #Started #NeedAKawsTrophy,” tweeted Drake.

He joins previously announced performers including Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miley Cyrus, and Robin Thicke.

DJ Cassidy will man the turntables, while A$AP Rocky, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Emeli Sandé are set to present Moonmen.

    @troof, isn’t it funny how Drake didn’t show up for the BETAwards, where he had the most Noms, but is breaking his neck to perform at the VMAs … He has done this two years in a roll. Drake isn’t Hip Hop he plays with it . He’s a POP artist, so it makes since he would want to perform at the VMAs before the BET awards.

    @HowIsIt, That’s because the bet awards is ratchet…and that’s coming from a black person!!! the bet awards need to step their game up to the levels of drake, beyonce, rihanna, lil wayne, and jay z, then maybe in coming years they’ll have the most relevant artists performing instead of second string artists.

    @HowIsIt, maybe because BET Awards suck and the VMAs is a way bigger award show.

    @what, Bet Awards gets more rating than the VMAS. Check your facts, the VMA is not bigger. I hate when blacks artist tries to disrespect BET. When their black ass wasn’t getting played on MTV, BET was created. Than you have Justin Timberlake showing more love for the BETAwards than some black artists, how shameful. Drake is a POP star, he will fall off like the rest of the fakes.
