Given how crazy popular the Kim Kardashian game has grown in the short time since it became available in your smartphone's app store, it makes total sense that another huge name (or in this case, two) has gone the game route to hype a new project. Enter Drake and Lil Wayne, who are using their Vs. game to let their fans get in on the action of their upcoming tour!

As the tour hasn't kicked off yet (that'll happen tomorrow night at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in Darien Center, New York), the game doesn't give fans much to play with for the time being. Upon downloading it, you pick a side, Weezy or Drizzy, and then you can "power up" your favorite rapper. 

This'll turn into more of a crowd participation thing come tomorrow night, when "powering up" Drake or Lil Wayne will have an effect on what goes down during the battle portion of the show, which embraces the Street Fighter vibe in full. (Got a VIP ticket? Rad! That means you'll be walking away from the encore with a pack of Lil Wayne and Drake trading cards created especially for the tour.)

It's great to see artists thinking outside the box, and we're excited to see how these rap battles will play out now that the fans are involved. For the complete list of Drake and Lil Wayne's tour dates, click here.
