This seems kinda random but its really not……..

In 2004, the idea of a rap crossover such as Jay-Z and Linkin Park’s Collision Course EP, had many eyes rolling– perceived as cringe-worthy, corny, and a money-grab (or possibly all three), we swallowed the music forcibly. Now, however, we live in an age where Madonna hopped on a song with Quavo (most recently, Swae Lee), rappers are collaborating with Imagine Dragons, and hip-hop artists frequently dabble in alternative genres of their choosing, to great success– creating chart confusion in the process. Not to mention, Lil Wayne is co-headlining a tour with Blink-182. At a glance, the joint tour seems like an obvious cash-in on many levels. Nostalgia plays a huge factor, as both Lil Wayne and Blink-182 are acts that peaked over a decade ago: people currently in their late 20s and early 30s likely saw both Blink-182’s boom in popularity while they were in elementary and middle school and witnessed Lil Wayne’s prolific mid-2000s run in high school. Combining the two is essentially an entire musical childhood all rolled into one— and even if you’re only a fan of one of the acts, any super-fan would buy tickets to the show regardless of who’s co-headlining.
