The rapper wants to go head-to-head with his mentor on stage.
Ahead of the Tuesday release of his sophomore studio album, Drake told Billboard that he wants to celebrate the project with some help from his mentor and YMCMB label mate, Lil Wayne. “I don’t want to just do an album release concert. So, me, I go to Jamaica a lot — I love Jamaican culture — so what I’m gonna do, I’m challenging Lil Wayne to a sound clash, that’s what I want to do,” he said. “I don’t want to just perform by myself. So I want Wayne to come out on stage with a mic and I’m gonna have a mic, and we’re gonna have both our DJs, and we’re gonna battle song-for-song and see who the people love more. And that’s how it’s gonna go.”
Called a sound clash, this battle is common amongst Jamaican artists. Drake says Weezy is down, it’s just a matter of making it happen. “That’s something that I’m serious about. He’s serious about it too. I already issued the challenge,” he said. “He’s serious about it, he accepted like, ‘Man, I’m ready. I’m gonna eat your food.’ I'm like, ‘Aiight, we’ll see.’”
