Drake publicly gives Lil Wayne his flowers.
Lil Wayne’s position in hip hop has never been in doubt. With a career spanning over two decades, and several classical projects under his name, The New Orleans MC has cemented his status as one of the greatest rappers ever. While there’s so much to spotlight on his illustrious career, his influence and selflessness is probably his least celebrated trait. Drake alludes to this and gives the man his flowers today (Aug. 17) in the comments section of an IG video clip posted by Elliott Wilson from his recent interview with Lil Wayne.
“This man believed in me after so many never called again or just didn’t see it to begin with,” wrote the “Laugh Now Cry Later” artist. “Most selfless artist ever never held any of us back always pushed us forward every single night in people faces 20k packed into an arena and he had a whole set of his show dedicated to introducing us FOR YEARS…all praise and credit due to the [GOAT].”

Lil Wayne signed Drake to his Young Money imprint in 2009. In the footage with Elliot Wilson Wayne describes Drake as “Plain and simple.”
