On Saturday night, Lil Wayne will take the stage at his second annual Lil’ Weezyana Fest in New Orleans. To help celebrate the event, Tunechi will drop in Drake’s semi-regular radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1. For the 28th episode of OVO Sound Radio, Wayne is the special guest, which means he’ll premiere a mix and possibly new music.
If it’s a collaboration with Drake, then Weezy fans should get excited. It’s been a while since Drake and Wayne have linked up on a track. Their last major pairing was on the proposed Tha Carter V single “Believe Me,” in 2014, though Wayne did recently hop on a remix of Drake’s Views cut “Hype.” Of course the pair have a long history together and have guested on a number of their respective songs in the past like “HYFR,” “Goin’ In,” “Ransom,” and “Miss Me” to name a few. That’s without even mentioning the incredibly successful Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour that went down a couple of years back.
Though Drake made a high profile appearance at Lil’ Weezyana Fest last year, he actually has a concert scheduled tonight in Tampa Bay, Fla. for his “Summer Sixteen” tour, which precludes his involvement in this year’s festivities. Nevertheless, Wayne’s NOLA blowout looks primed and ready to deliver again with a bill that features 2 Chainz, Yo Gotti, Mystikal, Migos, Partners-N-Crime along with a number of unannounced guests.
