NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 14: Lil Wayne and Drake perform at Pepsi Presents Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday Tour at Roseland on August 14, 2012 in New York City.

Drake recently shared a heartfelt tribute to his mentor Lil Wayne on Instagram. Drizzy’s post was in response to a post that revisited Lil Wayne’s CRWN interview. In Drake’s post, he expressed his gratitude to the “GOAT” for believing in him and introducing the Toronto rapper to thousands of fans.

“This man believed in me after so many never called again or just didn’t see it to begin with,” Drake said. “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.”

Back in May, Wayne interviewed the “Laugh Now Cry Later” rapper and the two artists discussed fatherhood and also 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,” Wayne said. “We got a standard we got to live up to and we got a track record and a legacy we got to always protect.”Weezy last collaborated with Drake on 2017’s “No Frauds.”
