Aubrey Drake Graham (aka rapper Drake) will turn 26 this Wednesday, Oct. 24, but he celebrated the big day early with Hennessy V.S. in Washington, D.C. He performed during Howard's Homecoming Weekend, taking the stage at Park on Fourteenth in our nation's capital. Remember, it's not his nation's capital since he is Canadian! But we'll consider him our "adopted" son any day of the week.

Drake rocked a black velour shirt with splashes of pink and gold, which matched his rose-colored glasses! We don't mean that figuratively, either. He looked dapper too, YMCMB-style. But that shirt is certainly loud.

He performed several hits and thankfully, Chris Brown and his crew were not in the hizzy to cause another battle bottle, like their epic confrontation back in NYC in the summer. The event, by all accounts, was drama-free.

Happy early birthday, Drake. We hope your 26th year is a good one, bro!

Check out the photos from the partay. You'll feel like you were on hand, tossing back some Hennessy and hanging with Drake.

Wow. It really is like you are attending a Drake show and are part of his crew. Holla.
