In Drake's Rap Radar interview, he spoke on holding it down for Young Money when Lil Wayne was in Rikers for much of 2010. [Jump to 7 minutes]
"I think a lot of things changed when Wayne went to jail. Because it was really a moment of realization, like alright this guy put all of his trust and all of his power behind us and now it's on our shoulders to make sure when he comes home ... It's kind of like the same thing if your man goes in and does a bid ... you want to make sure when he comes out you pick him up in a nice car. It was that type of responsibility. I wanted to make sure when my guy comes home, it would be bigger than where we were when we left ... I always thought I was Wayne's little brother and it's with me to carry his name."
Drake went on to say that he thinks he did good job repping YM during Wayne's time away because he applied the lessons he had learned from Weezy.
What Drake didn't mention is that he also slept with Lil Wayne girlfriend Tammy Torres during that time period, which Wayne revealed in his 2015 autobiography.
"This is the type of sh*t that a man never wants to find out when he's locked up," Weezy wrote. "Or, maybe so, cause only God knows what I would have done if I wasn't locked up right now. I woke up feeling f*cked up about the f*cked up day that I had ... finding out that she f*cked Drake was the absolute worst thing I could've ever found out. As a man, honestly, that sh*t hurt ... and not because it was Drake, it could have been any man. It would've hurt the same."
