Drake hinted at a possible tour featuring Jeezy and Jay-Z earlier this year.
"God willing, if everything goes according to plan and everybody's schedule is in place, then I will be on tour with some amazing people," Drake said in an interview. "One of them being Jay-Z, one of them being Lil Wayne, one of them being Young Jeezy and one of them being me." (Much Music)
Speculation on the tour began to circulate online in early June.
A really big rap tour is exactly what the game needs right now. A rep for Soulja Boy Tell Em told MTV News that the rapper will be joining Lil Wayne on tour this summer, along with Young Jeezy and Wayne's fast-rising protege Drake. Sources in Wayne's camp told MTV News they are confident that a tour with at least some of the four players will happen. (MTV)
