One of the most interesting aspects of this summer's Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour was video game company Capcom's involvement.

Other than a disastrous situation involving a possible date rape last year, Cee-Lo Green hasn't really popped up with news or new music in a while. That changed earlier this week, when he dropped off a nine track project with very little (if any) fanfare.
