This evening, Lil Wayne and Drake kick off their co-headlining North American tour in Upstate New York. In anticipation, they’ve let loose a brand new collaborative track called “Grindin'”.

Produced by Boi-1da and Vinylz, the two emcees unfurl their verses over a steady stream of skittish drums and ominous piano. Whereas Drake has stolen the show in most of their recent collaborations, this time Weezy gets the nod, as his trademark flippancy fits the beat rather nicely (he jumps from lines about supermodels to paranoia to Jay Z’s new cognac). That said, props to Drizzy for name-dropping Bridget Bardot.

Lil Wayne is credited as the lead artist on “Grindin'”, suggesting it may be our latest preview of the rapper’s forthcoming LP, Tha Carter V. It follows recent teaser tracks “Krazy”, “D’usse”, and the Drake-assisted “Believe Me”.

Here’s the cover art for the song:
