Drake vs. Lil Wayne

When: Thu., Sept. 11, 8 p.m. 2014

The Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour is less an onstage death match than a chance for the frequent collaborators to co-headline and make wheelchair and short-guy jokes. Former Canadian teen star Drake is a year out from the release of the mega-popular Nothing Was the Same, while there's a chance that NOLA native Lil Wayne's delayed Tha Carter V could still see a 2014 release. In the meantime, the duo's tour takes set-design cues from old button-mashing fight games and harnesses the audience-interaction power of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. The rappers trade sets of hits throughout the night, running through their catalogs of underdog victory songs and sexy slow jams before joining onstage for "Believe Me," "The Motto" and others, after the audience uses an app to declare one of the rappers the winner of the night—Lil Wayne currently leads 11-10. G-Eazy will also perform.
