Out and about: Drake vs. Lil Wayne, Howard Jones and the The Retro Futura Tour and much more

First Published Sep 04 2014 01:32PM      Last Updated Oct 03 2014 02:18 pm

Drake vs. Lil Wayne » The use of the abbreviation "vs." for this hip-hop extravaganza implies a pitched battle, but the relationship is really far different. Drake — the stage name of Canadian-born Aubrey Drake Graham — is a protégé of Lil Wayne (born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.) and signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Records in 2009. The two have appeared on each other’s singles, with Drake backing up Wayne on 2011’s "It’s Good," and Wayne making cameos on Drake’s singles "Miss Me" and "The Motto." Expect a war of words and much respect between the combatants.
