Drake Offers Opening Slot On Tour With New Contest

    Hear me, aspiring rappers: You could open for Drake on his Club Paradise tour. In collaboration with OutStage and the Real Hip Hop Network, the Toronto sensation has put together a contest–called the “Rise” Competition–the winner of which will get to open 20 dates on the tour that’s also set to include 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, J. Cole and Waka Flocka Flame.

    Entries should be sent to OurStage between May 7-11. The winner will be picked, out of the 100 artists that receive the most votes, by OurStage, Real Hip Hop Network and Drake himself. Whoever is chosen will get his own tour bus and will open shows from May 17 in Houston, Tex. to June 17 in Mansfield, Mass.
