Drake and Lil Wayne have produced some of our favorite tracks of the last few years. As label-mates and friends, their close-knit relationship has been well-documented, ranging from multiple song shout-outs to sitting together courtside at NBA playoff games.
Two months after Wayne was sentenced to a bid on Riker’s Island, Drizzy spoke on his label mate’s incarceration saying, “As far as me being able to ‘hold it down,’ that’s not even a conversation. Lil Wayne is Lil Wayne. He’s my hero, my mentor and he’s the reason I’m here. I do it in honor of him as opposed to filling the void.”
Drake pays homage to the big homie Wayne . . . or maybe something else. . .
