Drake is forever grateful to Lil Wayne.
Fresh off the release of his new single “Laugh Now Cry Later,” October’s Very Own is once again showing his appreciation to his “selfless” mentor in a heartfelt Instagram tribute.
In response to a post revisiting Lil Wayne’s CRWN interview with Elliott Wilson, Drake expressed his gratitude to the “GOAT” for believing in him and introducing him to the world by putting him in front of thousands of fans at his shows.
“This man believed in me after so many never called again or just didn’t see it to begin with,” Drake commented. “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.”
Added Drake, “All praise and credit due to the [GOAT].”
In May, Wayne interviewed Drake on his Apple Music show Young Money Radio where they discussed fatherhood and even teased new music.
“We are both perfectionists. So, it’s not like, you send me a joint, I’m going to throw a verse on there,” said Wayne, who last collaborated with Drake on 2017’s “No Frauds.” “We got a standard we got to live up to and we got a track record and a legacy we got to always protect.”
