Drake & Future's 'Summer Sixteen Tour' Becomes The Highest Grossing Trek In Hip Hop History

2016 was a huge year for Future and Drake.

Both had chart topping albums as Hendrix's "EVOL" stood atop the Billboard 200 Chart the week following it's February 6th release, with with 134,000 equivalent album units. It was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on September 15th.

Drizzy's "Views" album easily landed on top of the charts following it's April 29th release. The disc sold the equivalent of 1.04 million units during it's first week out. As of December 1, 2016, "Views," was certified 4x platinum by the RIAA.

Future also dropped his solo "Purple Reign" mixtape in January, teamed up with DJ Esco for "Project E.T. (Esco Terrestrial)" in June and collaborated with Gucci Mane for an EP titled "Freebricks 2: Zone 6 Edition" in November.

On July 20th Drake and Future hit the road for the 54-show "Summer Sixteen Tour." The trek became the highest grossing hip hop tour ever with a total gross of $84.3 million, Drake announced via his Instagram account on Sunday January 8, 2017.

I can just about manage with Drake... Future? I see no biggie. I guess there a benefit to selling your soul... Before you start the pay back if course. Don't sell your soul. Find out what happens to the cows in the farm. Fr the sake of humanity, I'm done.
