Before Drake rose to the top of hip hop, he was a Canadian actor that nobody seemed to take seriously until Lil Wayne signed him to Young Money Entertainment. Now with all these past years, Drake is still grateful for the breakthrough and paid tribute to his mentor, Lil Tunechi [Weezy] on his social media.
Drake took to his Instagram to express his feelings: “This man believed in me after so many never called again or just didn’t see it, to begin with,” the Six God wrote. “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].”
The pair worked together on several tracks in the past and will more than likely continue their partnership on Drake's upcoming sixth studio album. The multiple Grammy Award winner announced during his appearance on UFC Live that he is set to release the third edition in his No Ceilings mixtape series. His highly anticipated Carter VI album is also slated for release just after No Ceiling 3.
The hip hop world has always been in a mad rush to consume Weezy's materials and the hunger for these surely won't be any different.
