Fans attending Drake and Lil Wayne’s co-headlining tour opener on Aug. 8 were treated to the first live performance of Weezy’s new Drake-assisted song “Grindin’” just hours after it debuted online.
“Grindin’” is the latest single from Lil Wayne’s forthcoming album, Tha Carter V, which does not yet have a release date. The track features both YMCMB rappers breaking down their hustle, and sprinkling some boasting on top.
“Someone said, ‘ni–a they’re taking you seriously now’/I’m like, ‘I think they might just be scared of me now,” Drake raps. “Going to L.A. where I’m trying to get high and do a song every day.”
Wayne and Drake performed “Grindin’” with expert timing during the launch date of their “Street Fighter”-themed Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in Darien, N.Y., on Friday. Watch the clip below.
Drake vs. Lil Wayne plays U.S. amphitheaters through the end of September.
