In between tracks the rappers soft-joshed each other. Their banter follows a storyline that has remained consistent throughout the tour. Drake touts his new energy and current hits, Weezy reps for the classics. Weezy was clearly the superior fighter, but Drake was the better lover by a long shot and he leaned on his suave skills with the ladies to win him points throughout the night. For an emotional rendition of “Hold On, We’re Going Home” he rode across the crowd on a moving platform. Lil Wayne later derided it as a “stripper pole” but it undeniably endeared him to the crowd.

An hour or so in, the rappers faced off to trade verses and hooks, but even that didn’t come off with the confrontational fury of a real rap battle. However, the concert did deliver on its promise of a high energy throwdown. The two rappers performed for nearly two and a half hours with only a brief break for a DJ battle which saw the beat masters take turns dropping Texas classics to hype the crowd. The show built to an explosive climax complete with pyrotechnics and sonic booms. Lil Wayne put in a furious rendition of “A Milli” and Drake blasted back with his ubiquitous 2013 banger “Started From the Bottom.” [Austin360.com]

Earlier this month, the huge Drake / Lil Wayne co-headlining tour swept through Austin for a big show at Austin 360 Amphitheater on September 6, which G-Eazy opened. Lil Wayne had the classics but Drake brought the fresh hits as the two switched off throughout the night. More pictures of the whole thing below…
