Lil Wayne said fans could expect a battle between him and Drake on the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour but no one would have ever expected a video game. In preparation for the tour, which kicks off Friday night, they have designed an interactive app for Google Android and Apple iOS.
For the app, Drake and Weezy teamed up with their tour sponsor Capcom (the video game publisher behind Street Fighter) for a new game that will allow fans chose which rapper they are rocking night during their rap battle.
By button mashing, fans will help “power up” their favorite rapper and supposedly impact their performances in real time. The app was created by Echo Park-based production company iam8bit in association with October’s Very Own, Young Money Entertainment and Capcom.
“We are both thrilled that our fans will get the unique opportunity to join us in this interactive experience,” Drake and Lil Wayne said in a statement. DvsLW is available on Google Play and the Apple app store under “Drake vs Lil Wayne.”
