Lil Wayne & Drake Announce Co-Headlining ‘Drake Vs. Lil Wayne’ Tour: See The Dates

Lil Wayne and Drake headlined two of 2013’s biggest hip-hop tours. The Young Money label boss had tapped Atlanta heavyweights T.I. and 2 Chainz for America’s Most Wanted Festival, while his signee nabbed Miguel and Future, plus recurring guests Jhene Aiko and PARTYNEXTDOOR for his own Would You Like a Tour? This year, however, they decided to hit the road together.

The two are co-headlining a 31-date tour, Drake Vs. Lil Wayne, that launches August 8 in Darien, New York, and wraps September 27 in Woodlands, Texas. Their announcement arrives just as “Believe Me,” their collaboration for Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V, breaks into Billboard’s Hot 100 and hits No. 9 on its Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

So with that, the sheer potential for high-profile guests (Drake had one for nearly every stop of his tour) and perhaps even more new music on the way, Drake Vs. Lil Wayne is bound to be one of 2014’s biggest hip-hop tours, second only to Beyonce and Jay Z‘s On the Run trek. See the dates after the jump.
