King on Road: How Drake Mastered the Art of Touring with His Summer Sixteen Trek

Summer sixteen belongs to Drake. While “One Dance” holds the spot for song of the summer, the Toronto rapper is king of the hip-hop tour circuit. The 47-date Summer Sixteen tour kicked off in July at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin and recently touched ground in New York City for four sold-out nights at Madison Square Garden. The hot ticket of the season has shown Drake as a solo force, hip-hop’s biggest team player and his own one-man publicity machine.
