Atlanta hip hop star Waka Flaka is ready to set it off during Drake’s Club Paradise Tour. The “Round of Applause” rapper told MTV he feels privileged to be a part of the tour’s all-star line-up that also includes J. Cole, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz and French Montana.

“He’s like, ‘We the new era, we the new faces of rap, we the new generation,’ “the Atlanta rapper said of a conversation he and Drake had. “So why not put us all together? I salute him for that. You know I’m about to smash that.”

Although Drake is the tour headliner he doesn’t mind sharing the spotlight with some of the rising talent. The Canadian rapper spoke earlier this week during a press conference about his excitement for the show and his hopes to collaborate on a couple of songs at some point during the tour.

“I want to go out on tour with the most exciting artists right now, and I want to make sure that I have songs with all of them. If we start getting into it and we start really vibing, maybe the last few nights, it’s a collaboration show; maybe we do all of our songs onstage together.”

The 27-city tour kicks off on May 7th in Concord, CA and will make stops in Las Vegas, Atlanta, Chicago, DC, Detroit, and Philadelphia.
