Drake, Lil Wayne Present Fun, Interactive Show at Tour Kickoff [VIDEO]
The Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour also gave fans the opportunity to dictate how they want the show to be presented through the DvsLW app that was launched a day prior. From deciding who came out first to which song they wanted to hear, the duo’s concert was more about the fans than it was about the artists themselves.
According to MTV News, a ‘Street Fighter’-inspired introductory video set up the rap battle between student and teacher. During the concert, Drizzy and Weezy traded insults with each other while performing their biggest hit songs.
Among the highlights of the night was Wayne snapping on Drake by reminding him that he was making hits when he was in a wheelchair on ‘Degrassi.’ Later, Drake one-upped Tunechi by performing ‘Marvins Room’ while hovering over the crowd on a stripper pole. However, Weezy wasn’t impressed with Drake’s antics. The Young Money was so bored that he went backstage, took a shower, and returned in a bathrobe.
After an exhaustive rap battle, fans were instructed to use the app to vote for a winner. Wayne was the victor and Drake humbly accepted his defeat.

But the show wasn’t over just yet. The dynamic duo perform their collaborative hits together including ‘The Motto,’ ‘Believe Me’ and for the first time, ‘Grindin‘ from Weezy’s upcoming ‘Tha Carter V’ album.
Drake and Wayne closed out the show with a performance of ‘HYFR.’
