50 Cent comes out as surprise guest on Drake VS Lil Wayne Tour in Hartford [News]

Hartford, CT – If you’ve been lucky enough to attend one of Drake’s concerts, you’ll know the Young Money rapper knows how to put on a good show. And seems to know how to bring out the right special guests, and at the right time. His mentor, Lil Wayne, is the same way. Often, leaving the crowd speechless with nostalgic and timely appearances (he brought out Stevie Wonder!). In tonight’s Drake VS Lil Wayne concert in Connecticut, rapper turned mogul Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and his G-Unit were the latest guest performers on the highly publicized tour – apparently brought out by Weezy as part of the tour’s competitive twist. Fan footage below via Marisa Flores on Instagram. 50 and G-Unit were also special guests at OVO Fest in Toronto earlier this month.

Next up on the tour for Drake and Lil Wayne is Cincinnati, Clarkson, Burgettstown, Flushing and Camden. This one is going all across the US and reaching a ton of markets. With over 30-dates, the co-headlining tour has a new spin for fans, who get to see the Young Money artists go head to head with fans deciding outcomes. Concert attendees are encouraged to download the Drake VS Lil Wayne App (free) in a promo video posted after the jump. They’re then asked to select their city and decide which artist they want to see open the show. The artist with the most votes opens the show for that particular city. Lil Wayne is currently in the lead.
