Although Drake won't be promoting a new album on tour, Weezy is said to be releasing Tha Carter V, his 11th studio album, sometime this year. Drizzy's fourth LP will be out next year, according to a line from his "0 to 100" freestyle. 

Wayne's last collective jaunt was the American's Most Wanted tour alongside T.I. in 2012. Drizzy recently wrapped up Would You Like a Tour? overseas in March, but he's still been making his rounds on the performance circuit. Earlier this month he and Wayne performed with Nicki Minaj at Hot 97's Summer Jam, and this weekend he begins the OVO-curated Houston Appreciation Weekend, and will hold his annual OVO fest starting August 3.
