- You first met Drake: as Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi: The Next Generation
- But you forgot about his teen actor beginnings: when he unleashed his dextrous hip-hop skills, got signed to Lil Wayne’s Cash Money label, and knocked out hits such as “Headlines,”“Take Care,” and “Started at the Bottom”
- Drake’s stats for those betting on his bout with Lil Wayne: 12 number-one singles (trumping all other artists on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart) a Grammy Award, three Juno Awards, and six BET Awards
- How Drake might win the battle: he’s a little more adept at crooning, as proven in sultry hits such as “Find Your Love,” and “Marvin’s Room”
- You first met Lil Wayne: during his 1996 stint in the rap trio known as the Hot Boys
- But you forgot about his rap-collective beginnings: when Wayne went solo with “Tha Block Is Hot” and knocked out one smash record after another, including all five chapters of Tha Carter saga with hits such as “Pop Bottles,” “Drop the World,” and “Going In”
- Lil Wayne stats for the bookies: four Grammys, ten BET awards, and four Billboard Music Awards
- How Lil Wayne might win the battle: as a rapper, he’s a bit edgier than his friend Drake, and his tattoos might give him bonus points with fans
- How the winner is determined: fans can download a Street Fighter-style app on their phones, then mash the buttons to power up their favorite performer
- What the winner gets: a haze of pyrotechnics and confetti
- What the loser gets: an invitation to come back to the stage, where they join their friendly rival on several of their collaborative songs, including “The Motto” and “Believe Me”
- The winner so far: at the time of this writing, Drake was beating Lil Wayne 11–10
