Over the weekend, Drizzy's mentor Lil Wayne appeared in a promotional clip supporting their current nationwide tour.
"I've been doing this too long for anybody - especially a Drake to be coming at me with some versus Lil Wayne sh*t ," Wayne says at the start of the clip. "When I go to the studio, I got a list of things to do everyday. It's not a such thing as I'm gonna take off and go to the studio this month. Nah, I go to the studio every single day. I work out. ... I don't pick up weights. I already go enough weight on my motherf*cking back. I lift blunts everyday, all day. And this workout regiment right here, when you just lifting these blunts everyday, it makes your forearm ready to knock a n*gga like Drake clean the f*ck out. Know what I'm talking about?" (Vimeo)
Drake took things a step further by revealing how their new "Drake vs. Lil Wayne" tour app worked in the video.
"This is me, working out, getting ready for tour," Drake says in his portion of the clip. "I gotta let the people know I'm super prepared in my own hour, running up and down the stairs. Anyway, um, I'm not here to run up and down stairs or show you me and my friends' graffiti on our special wall, say cool things. I don't think people realize what this is. This isn't a Wayne goes on and I go on and Wayne goes on. This is like me versus whatever, this guy that put me here or whatever. Not only do you decide who wins but you decide who starts the show."
