Separately, Drake and Lil Wayne are two of the most prominent hip-hop artists globally, but when you combine their talents, they are unstoppable. According to a new interview, it looks like they may be looking to join forces again.
On Tuesday (Sept. 8), a video interview of Lil Wayne’s manager, Cortez Bryant, for Brian “B.Dot” Miller’s Art of Facts surfaced on Instagram and confirmed what fans had been wishing for, Lil Wayne and Drake have been in talks to bring another joint tour to life.
During the talk where B.Dot and Bryant discussed their experiences on the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour in 2014, which Bryant has dubbed one of his favorites to work on, Bryant explained that another one could be in the making. “They talked about it,” Bryant began, replying to Brian’s request for another tour between the Young Money rappers. “I think we need to do it again.”
The original co-headlining tour between the Canadian rapper and the New Orleans native took place in 2014 and was based on the fighting game Street Fighter, and meant to promote their individual studio albums, Nothing Was the Same and Tha Carter IV.
While there is no telling if Cortez is referring to a tour with Drake’s forthcoming album, Certified Lover Boy, or a previous project released by the two rhymers, based on the current restrictions due to COVID-19, this tour is not coming anytime soon. There is still no word on when touring will begin, but hopefully, a Drake and Lil Wayne tour is making a comeback in the new year.
