Hip hop artist J Cole played host for New Year’s Eve at Tao at the Venetian. He took to the stage just before the clock struck midnight for the countdown and welcomed 2013, saying, “It’s my first New Year’s in Vegas and everything they told me was true,” then making a wish for the crowd, “May your dreams become reality.”

After he had the crowd rapping along to every word of his surprise three-song set, he headed to the first floor of the venue to greet party goers before settling in at a VIP table on the dance floor stocked with Bud Light Platinum and more.
