Two of Hip-Hop’s best kicked off their summer tour on Friday night in Buffalo. Drake and Lil’ Wayne went head-to-head at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center, kicking off their “Drake vs. Lil’ Wayne” battle U.S. trek. After an opening set from Yo Gotti, the two heavyweight MC’s went song-for-song over a two-hour set, alternating stage times and at one point, going through a flurry of hits together on stage.
Just hours after debuting their new collaboration “Grindin’,” Weezy and Drizzy performed the song for the first-time live. In the end, fans who downloaded the Drake vs. Lil’ Wayne app presented by Capcom voted Lil’ Wayne the winner of the battle. The amphitheater
tour runs until September 27, click here for dates.
