Just hours before they kick off their co-headlining “Drake Vs. Lil Wayne” tour in Buffalo, New York, Lil Wayne joins forces with Drizzy once again on his new Carter V single “Grindin.” Following their last collaboration “Believe Me,” the YMCMB all-stars share blood, sweat, and tears on the dark hustlers’ anthem, produced by Boi-1da and Vinylz.

After enlisting the services of Kobe Bryant and Floyd Mayweather Jr., Tunechi called on Kevin Durant to unveil the cover art on his Instagram account.

The tourmates have also released an interactive app, which will give fans the power to decide who starts the show, who wins the show, and whose side they are on.

Tha Carter V stills awaits a release date, but Wayne has been in the studio with Nicki Minaj, Christina Milian, and Mannie Fresh.

“I’m still nervous about Tha Carter V,” he told XXL. “I’m confident about what I do, but I’m still nervous about what people think.”
