With Take Care all but poised to be on many “Best of” lists for 2011 and much anticipation building for his forthcoming collaboration YOLO with Officer Ricky Rick Ross, Drake is definitely riding a high into the new year. And what better way to keep the momentum going, than by going on tour.

While its namesake wasn’t fortunate enough to end up on Take Care, Aubrey’s “Club Paradise Tour” was one of the most coveted yet limited engagements of 2011. Drake teamed up with Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky to hit only a few select cities in 2011, so you either made it or you didn’t. Thankfully, however, the tour will be extending itself into 2012, so those of you who didn’t get to catch it the first go round have no excuses a second chance. The gang hits Texas twice in February in two college towns – sadly, no love for the H – but that gives you ample time to bump Take Care, #Section.80, and LIVELOVEA$AP to where you’ll have memorized enough lyrics to not be the awkward person at the concert who’s just there to look cool bobbing their heads.

Peep the tour dates after the jump.
