Drake & Future have reached another milestone in their careers. Now they can say they headlined the highest grossing Hip-Hop tour in history!
The record was previously held by another power duo, Jay Z and Kanye West aka “The Throne.” Their 2011 tour generated $75 million. The Summer Sixteen tour which featured Drake and Future reportedly brought in $84.3 million. What also sets the two tours apart is the time in which they grossed. “The Throne” ran for 63 dates while Summer Sixteen took less time and made more money by playing only 54 dates.
This news comes after Drake became the first artist to have a song hit one billion streams on Spotify with “One Dance.”
