Drake, Lil Wayne, Jeezy Become ‘America’s Most Wanted,’ Announce Tour
Rappers Lil Wayne, Drake, Soulja Boy Tell Em and Young Jeezy are officially 'America's Most Wanted.' The four will be heading out on a summer tour, much to the delight of teenage girls every. Although Wayne will be the headlining act, his three openers could easily stand alone, given their cult-like following.
Current Internet sensation rapper/actor Drake is excited about going on such a huge tour before even dropping an album. "I think it will be an exciting night for each city that we go to. You got two young guys [and] two guys that have been killing the game for a minute, so I think it will be a dope tour," Drake said.
The tour provides a perfect opportunity for all four rappers to promote their upcoming projects. Drake recently shot the video for his buzz single 'Best I Ever Had,' which should tide fans over until he releases his debut 'Thank Me Later.'
Wayne's much-delayed rock album 'Rebirth' is set to hit stores August 18. The album's release date was changed several times to accommodate the Grammy winner's hectic touring schedule.
Atlanta natives Soulja Boy ('The Deandre Way') and Young Jeezy ('Thug Motivation 103') are also both readying late 2009 releases.
The tour kicks off next month and will hit 47 states beginning with Pennsylvania.
