Hip Hop heavyweights Drake and Lil Wayne are co-headlining a Street Fighter video game-themed summer tour that allows fans to determine who opens and who will ‘win' the show by using a smart phone app to send power ups for either rapper.

Lil Wayne was selected as the Pittsburgh opener, performing three songs atop the second tier of the stage before handing the mic to Drake. The tour, which kicked off Aug. 8, is scheduled to hit 31 cities through September 27.
