That Drake just can’t catch a break!

A second free concert in New York City featuring the somewhat-nerdy hip-hopster has been canned after New York City Police and Parks Department officials grew concerned over the sizable crowd the event would have likely attracted to Manhattan’s Central Park.

Drake’s first free show in NY was scheduled to take place at South Street Seaport on June 15, the same day his album Thank Me Later debuted. The event — which was sponsored by Paper Magazine and co-starred ’90s boy band Hanson — was shut down at the last minute after the estimated crowd of 25,000 began riot.

While scheduled to perform for Good Morning America, planners ultimately had to scrap the Drake idea for fear that it would turn into a security issue again. Simply addressing the change, the concert planners stated: “We were interested in having Drake perform, but he was never officially booked. The cast of Green Day’s Broadway musical ‘American Idiot’ will play ‘Good Morning America’ on July 16 instead,” an ABC spokesperson told The Daily News Thursday.
