Soulja Boy recently spoke on his experience alongside Weezy and Jeezy since hitting the road together.
"When they came at me and was like, 'Wayne wants you to be on tour with Drake, Jeezy, a lot of people,' of course I'mma do it," Soulaj Boy said in an interview. "My first tour I did was with Chris Brown. Now this is gonna be my second official tour...On this type of tour, you got Young Jeezy fans in the crowd, Lil Wayne fans in the crowd, Jeremih fans in the crowd, Pleasure P fans in the crowd, and this is not the only time you gotta do it. You gotta do it four or five days straight. This is what I'm built for...I try to strive for my best. I respect everybody in the tour, likewise, but I'm trying to have the best show in the tour. I'm gonna stay and watch everybody, though." (MTV)
Aside from special guest appearances, Young Money's Nicki Minaj has also been spotted on the nationwide tour.
"People keep asking me that, I'm officially on the tour. I've been on the tour since day one," she said in an interview this week. "There might be a couple days I don't just because I have personal obligations but I'm on the tour. I can't wait to see everybody come out and have fun." (Hip Hop Stan)
After collapsing on-stage last Friday (July 31), Drake re-joined the tour in Canada earlier this week.
"Look, I wanna say one thing," Drizzy told the crowd. "Before every show I've ever seen this man do, the greatest entertainer I'll ever witness. Make some noise for Lil Wayne. Now listen up, before every show he does, he tells the crowd to make some noise for what they've created. My man, I just wanna shake your hand for what you do..." (YouTube)
