Drake, Lil Wayne Debut Rap Battle App For Upcoming Tour


Camille Augustin / August 7, 2014

Fans can now have Drake and Lil Wayne at their fingertips. The Young Money tandem has created an app for Apple iOS and Google Android users to coincide with their forthcoming “Drake Vs Lil Wayne” tour and it’s inspired by the classic video game Street Fighter.

Creator, iam8bit, built the game to allow fans in each city during the tour “to pick a side (Drake or Lil Wayne) during each night’s rap battle and ‘button mash’ as if they were playing the latest Ultra Street Fighter IV video game to help their favorite rapper ‘power up’ and impact their performances in real time,” Billboard reports.

“We are both thrilled that our fans will get the unique opportunity to join us in this interactive experience,” Drizzy and Weezy said in a joint statement.

The app, called “Drake Vs Lil Wayne”, is now available for purchase and will have its first go-round this Friday (Aug. 8) when the rappers kick off the tour at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in New York.
