West Hollywood, CA – Champagne Papi also known as Drake fully lived up to his Champagne Papi moniker last night (December 31) at his supremely star-studded The Mod Slection Champagne New Year’s Party at Delilah in West Hollywood.
To say the affair was New Year’s Eve party of all New Year’s Eve parties would be an understatement. Guests included Chris Brown, Kevin Durant, Idris Elba, Travis Scott, Hit Maka, Nas, Diddy, LeBron James, Mary J. Blige, Mos Def, Tinashe and a host of other celebs. The venue was packed wall to wall while everyone enjoyed open bar courtesy of Drizzy and John Terzian, co-founder of the h.wood Group.
In true host of the party fashion, the man of the hour casually walked around greeting guests. He stopped by Chris Brown’s table to dap him up and share laughs, proving that their recent reconciliation is indeed a reality. It was a great sight to see, two men in completely different stages in life, Drake is a father now and Brown is a self-proclaimed changed man.
11:59 pm slowly rolled around and the countdown began. Once the New Year was officially in, the DJ went into an all-Drake catalog playlist. Gold and black balloons filled the ceiling as everyone partied like it was 1999. Literally.
As the room got full, Drizzy sectioned off a VIP area where LeBron James enjoyed drinks by the bar, while Dennis Graham (Drake’s father) worked the room. Kevin Durant stood out as perhaps the tallest man in the building, while Diddy joined the party on the other side at his table. Shortly after 2:00 am with the party still in full effect, Nas slipped in the back door to join Diddy and Mary J. Blige.
While the party ended at Delilah the after party continued at The Nice Guy well into 5:00 am. Anybody who was somebody was at Drake’s New Year’s Eve party. It was definitely a night to remember, one for the books. Happy New Year!
