Young Money’s Drake and Lil Wayne are giving diehard fans something to get excited about for their upcoming Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour by releasing a 37-second teaser this week.
The cartoonized trailer premiered online Tuesday (July 22) afternoon.
The Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour is set to kick off next month, and today they release an official trailer for the event. The 37 second trailer teases the “Street Fighter” theme of the tour, and hints that Drake and Wayne will be facing off in an all-out battle on the stage. The tour is set to get underway in August after Drizzy’s “OVO Fest” and will run through the end of September. (Complex)
Recently, Weezy F. Baby said the onstage antics would live up to the tour name.
Lil Wayne told MTV News that his manager Cortez Bryant actually came up with the idea for Drake vs. Lil Wayne, and he definitely plans to have some fun with it. “Since, thank god we’ve been so successful, [we’ll just be] going back and forth with our hits and getting the crowd to go crazy, then just finally hit the stage together,” Weezy told MTV News on his “Krazy” video set. “It’s a battle type thing.” And who does Wayne think is favored to win this battle? “I give the good guy the edge,” he joked.
