Lil Wayne turned 35 today. If he seems older, it's because he's been in the game for 20 years.
Along the way, he's elevated some other pretty prominent rappers, including Drake.
Drizzy's affection for his mentor is well known; he recently got a tattoo of Weezy's face on his arm.
So it's no surprise that Drake had some nice words for Wayne on his big day.
Happy Birthday bossssssy! Thank you for the endless tools and the inspiration! I would have been lost at how to maneuver this game without watching you do it first. I remember when they told you that it was impossible to build a skate ramp on your roof...and then I came back and you were skating on your roof. Please never change. Love for life. @mackmaine4president @tezzington @liltunechi @nickiminaj @imguddagudda @marleygblood @capitob @liltwist @jas.prince
What do you think Wayne's legacy will be when all is said and done?
