Two Music Mondays in one day? Is it Christmas? Well, Friday is going to be an early Christmas present for myself and many others. Early this morning, Drake’s Summer Sixteen Tour was announced, and he is traveling across the country with Future! The tickets go on sale Friday, along with his new album “Views From The 6“.
Drake was one of the popular names that came up during my Greatest Rapper Bracket. The reason I left him off the list was because I think of Drake as more than a rapper. He is an artist that can do many other things besides rap. He can sing, he can tell stories better than most rappers or artists in the game, and he is also an excellent Ambassador for the Toronto Raptors. He has established himself as more than a music artist. He is creating a brand around his name. The OVO movement is even on Jordan shoes now.
This tour is about to be legendary, especially if this album is as fire as it’s suppose to be. We’ve been waiting on this album for about three years now, and Drake has made many hints on when this album is dropping. We finally have a date and now we have a tour. It’s Lit!
