Capcom is Sponsering Drake Vs. Lil Wayne a concert tour with none other than…Drake and Lil Wayne. This out of the blue collaboration seems odd at first but makes a bit of sense if you look at it from the perspective of Capcom trying to raise their “cool factor” within pop-culture. Video games are essentially pop culture these days. The stereotypical anatomy of what a “gamer” is has been voided by the infiltration of the gaming culture to mainstream audiences. Your dad may love Call of Duty and your mom may love Dance Central on the contrary; all-in-all there’s always been something available for the entire family.
Drake is no stranger to the gaming culture however; just last year he collaborated with EA to launch FIFA 14 that was promoted with a sexy October’s Very Own limited edition console. It has been said that Drake Vs. Lil Wayne will be a sort of “stage battle” between the two hip-hop artists; but instead of fists there will be an exchange of bass sync’d metaphors and verbage.
â€œSince, thank god weâ€™ve been so successful, [we’ll just be] going back and forth with our hits and getting the crowd to go crazy, then just finally hit the stage together,â€ Weezy (Lil Wayne) told MTV News on his â€œKrazyâ€ video set last month. â€œItâ€™s a battle type thing.â€
Hopefully we’ll see Drake Vs. Lil Wayne DLC in Ultra Street Fighter IV as Ryu and Akuma alternate costumes. (***CAPCOM TAKE THE HINT***)Â
