Drake and Lil Wayne Offer Special App For Upcoming Tour
The 'Believe Me' rappers are partnering with Capcom, the folks who published the video game 'Street Fighter,' to create a special app built by the creative think tank and production company iam8bit.
The app will be available for both Apple iOS and Google Androids, and it'll allow concertgoers to either choose Drake or Wayne during the show, and give them additional power by pressing separate buttons -- just like in 'Ultra Street Fighter IV.' In case you haven't heard yet, the tour will have a battle rap theme and pit the two artists against each other.
Both Drizzy and Lil Tunechi say they are thrilled to combine such innovative technology with their tour.
"We are both thrilled that our fans will get the unique opportunity to join us in this interactive experience," they said in a joint statement.
And the folks at iam8bit are equally excited about the app, and it shows just how much Weezy and Drake care about their fans.
"Artists don't do this sort of thing for their fans very often," said John Gibson and Amanda White, who work at the company. "So we think we are out in front of improving the interactive concert and overall experience for the show.
The Drake vs Lil Wayne tour kicks off this Friday (Aug 8) in Darien Center, N.Y.
